Just used it this morning for PER-SIN, currently in my seat awaiting pushback. Was seamless and straightforward, apart from some QF staff be unaware. I was given a bp at the gate though in lieu of the paper printout, so you do still end up with one if needed. Passport check done at the gate, othe...

Correct. LHR-HNL is 75 miles less than BNE-LAX.From a winds perspective, it would be very similar to UA's PVG-EWR which is only 40 mins different between the two directions due to being polar. By contrast, QF's BNE-LAX is 75 mins different between the two directions.

I have twice walked into the MEL FLounge with a 7-month old in tow and been ushered straight into one of these meeting rooms. In fact one of the rooms had a small stash of toys in it as well. So when not in use by more important people they are also used as "family rooms" to keep the noise levels...

BA’s issue revolves around a carry on limit of 23kg but clearly not enough space to hold that. So for flights that are expected to be carry-on “heavy” ie lots of business travellers on short trips, they may enforce a limit. On a recent flight out of WAW my carry-on was weighe...

It’s purely at the discretion of the person on the desk at the lounge entrance. BA are very strict about the 1 guest only rule and kids over 2 are counted as a guest - no family allowance like Qantas. I have been fortunate to get wife, 6 mth old and 2.5yr old into the First Lounge as a Pla...

Whilst it may well be a great passenger experience, it will be more about aircraft weight distribution and balancing for optimal performance and fuel burn. It’s quite common on partially full flights, the reason you don’t see it often is because aircraft loads and generally quite high.

I am flying into LHR on QF9 in J with an onward connection with BA. My stop over is several hours so I’m after a suggestion on which option is better for a good breakfast and shower - clear immigration and use the AA arrivals lounge first and then a landslide transfer to T5 or stay airside...
