Anyone know if SQ have announced if they'll keep a 3-3-3 ayout in Y in their new 777's?

I'd add Mudgee to the list. Some great wineries out there doing some fantastic reds, quite a few italian varieties and even one place that makes fantastic vermouth.

Should have gone with Sonos ..... I love my Bose Soundtouch but they still don't support Apple Airplay despite so many promises.

I often take a daytime flight back to SYD from SIN and when I arrive at 8pm-ish I breeze through customs, but when you arrive in the early morning peak the whole place is a zoo and it seems to me that the express paths aren't enforced and so when you most need it, the pass is useless.

Internationally I'm usually flying SQ and always opt for a longer layover if possible. I'm just not interested in the stress of it all if my first flight is delayed. That being said, the staff at Changi are super efficient at facilitating these connections. I've gotten off delayed flights and see...

Flying to Perth in J on the a330 in a few weeks, can't wait. I think the seat is one of the most comfortable I've sat in.

I think it's the definiton of 'upgrade' that gets tricky here, hotels have so many room types now that you get 'upgraded' to the next room tier which is just the same room on a slightly higher floor, or a room with a few extra sqm, rather than a completely different room category. That being said...

The Victuals market in the centre of town is fantastic for a wander if you are a foodie. Amazing produce and food. Also found a great little jazz bar called Vogler not far from there. Enjoy, it's a great city.

I have discovered that you realy have to keep on top of them, had a few issues with SC's that were incorrectly allocated from the SQ rate changes earlier last year. Took forever to resolve, even when I had all of the documentation about what flights we had taken and when.

Even if you drop back, unless you lose status credits (that have a 12 month life), once you complete your next flight you'll gain the SC's and kick back up to Gold anyway.
