  • As much as the Virgin crews are very pleasant I still think their  737 seating product is substandard (having just sat bolt upright for 5 hours to Perth on the 737 - I know another poster has berated me for complaining about those 737 biz seats, but they are simply substandard for biz in my ...

    Mar 23, 2015, 12.31 PM / Virgin Australia on track for trans-Tasman business class rollout

  • I don’t know what VA are thinking but after much promotion of the east-west A330 service only ONE of the 4 daily flights BNE-PER is on an A330. Other 3 on 737. Flew to Perth last week on a 737, just over 5 hours and really uncomfortable. The 737 biz seat barely reclines and is as hard as he...

    Mar 03, 2015, 08.12 AM / Virgin Australia: Airbus A330 flights for Fiji, Sydney-Melbourne

  • Thai have cut out First a few times over the past 20 years, then brought it back. They did it once while I was in the middle of a trip, so it was First all the way to Europe, and back to BKK, then bunged in the middle of a 3 on their 777 in Business to SYD, and no compensation. Not happy Jan. Th...

    Aug 28, 2014, 05.58 PM / Thai Airways to reinstate first class, Boeing 747s on Sydney flights

  • All I can say is that if they were new planes on the last two SQ SIN BNE flights it didn't show! Or they have (like me) aged quickly!   The brown leather was scuffed, cracked and lumpy; the beige plastics scuffed, generally the plane looked very  tired and 'used'. However that was not m...

  • well whoop-de-do, but if you fly Brisbane - SIN or one of the 4 Syd-Sin flights, SQ use old A330’s with 2x2x2 angled wedgie seats. For the overnight from SIN-BNE they are dreadful, lumpy and you slide down,  but SQ insist that an 8 hour+ overnight flight is “regional”, and ...

  • How annoying - I hope the Terminal A lounge is going before my next visit! Terminal A is the Schengen zone terminal. Terminal B has the B& D gates and is physically attached to Term A - you can walk. Terminal E is the mid-field terminal used mainly by long haul (and not Schengen). The o...

    Oct 06, 2017, 11.30 AM / Zurich Swiss/Star Alliance Lounges Terminal A

  • My partner is Swiss, so we are frequent users of the Swiss biz class combo deals to Zurich (either RTW or Oz-Europe return). As far as I know you can only access it thru an agent.  What the agent can see (which you can’t with online booking) is the availability of the different classes...

    Feb 18, 2016, 08.11 AM / Has anyone booked the Swiss of Lufthansa Business RTW fares recently?

  • Have used QC card in Canada, USA, Spain, Greece, Austria, Germany, France  and Japan - worked just like a normal MasterCard everywhere. Can also access cash from ATMs for a small fee (although apart from station at CDG, the French train system tix machines don’t like “foreign&rsq...

    Aug 27, 2015, 07.55 AM / QANTAS Cash Hi all, thought I'd pick some more seasoned brains.

  • My understanding is that AY have only three A340's with the old wedgie seats, which are mostly being used on the Singapore route until replaced by A350's. So you should be ok, given that one of these isn't swapped for Tokyo at the last minute. This from the AY website: FULL-FLAT SEATS ON SELECT...

    Apr 11, 2015, 04.07 PM / Flying Finnair Business Helsinki - Tokyo in Oct.

  • Agreed - call. They can see more options over several dates. The bottle neck may be from Oz to Abu Dhabi. Last time I checked, Velocity had  limited access to seats on flights ex AUS to Abu Dhabi on Etihad.  I was all poised to move from Qantas to Velocity, and called Velocity fir...
