Upgrading for cash or points depends on your circumstances I guess, especially for the intra european product. I've brought really cheap Y class fares on BA european flights then been offered the chance to upgrade to Club Europe for Â£89. For me that's not great value - with BA Gold/O...

I'm pretty close to this project. There will not be dine on demand. The main changes will be bedding (mattress toppers, improved pillows and blankets) and catering. In terms of catering if you have a look at how Turkish or Austrian does their inflight J class service it's pretty...

As mediocre as I generally find the whole BA Business Class experience on the ground and in the air, their T5 arrivals lounge is actually really excellent. It has separate dining rooms for First Class passengers (Concorde Breakfast Room) and Business Class/BA Golds. It is really spaci...

I wonder if QR's expansion in Australia and the signing of the Qatar/OZ bilateral will temp QF to consider QR as their partner to europe once the QF/EK agreement is up for renewal (end of '17?). When QF first went into agreement with EK QR had a small footprint in Australia - MEL and PER. &...

The irony with the 'real' Al Safwa First Class lounge in DOH is that if you are a OW Emerald on an expensive full fare business class ticket from say DOH to SYD you have no access.But...if you are on a 40 minute flight on an A320 from DOH-DXB/AUH etc etc in Business you are granted entry as the i...

It is odd. I know during the QF/BA JSA both airlines had an agreement - Qantas wouldn't allow UK residents to join QF frequent flyer and BA wouldn't allow Australian residents to join Executive Club. Since the JSA disolved QF now allows UK residents to join their FFP but BA still hasn't changed...

Kayak is my absolute first 'go to'. It's just a search engine at the end of the day that allows you in one search to get the lowest price from hundred of sites. The only thing I would suggest is when you click to redirect to the selling site check the flight details very ver...

Not an expert moa999 but I guess it depends on what kind of bilateral agreement OZ/Indonesia has. For example Air Asia X flies MEL-DPS with A330's. These are registered to the Malaysian carrier, not the Indonesian carier Air Asia Indonesia (which only has A320's in the fleet). S...
