Agreed - would be good to know if there will be any benefits for VA Gold or Plat. I like many others keep my international flying to SQ because of my VA status and this must've working out well for SQ.

I'd be happy to see no premium Y on flights from SYD as it makes upgrading from Y to J easier. If there is premium on the plane, you can't upgrade to business.

I think I'll stick to Flight Aware. I find the info always accurate, and I like the ability to see where your inbound aircraft is - great for maximising lounge time!

Personally I like having the hard copy visa in my passport. I'm sure the e-visa works fine but I'd rather not run the risk of having to run up against Indian bureaucracy if something did go wrong. Also from memory the e-visa queue was pretty substantial the last couple of times I arrived in BOM.
