Perhaps Stephen Chow should become AusBT's Asia correspodent? Very detailed and helpful article. Nice one.

Nice review. Hopefully with the tie up between Virgin Australia and Virgin Atlantic - VS will get more Australian passengers who can enjoy this lounge.

Sorry I wasn't clear. A reason QF is re-coding with AF (when they already have the EK arrangements in place for 1 stops to Paris on EK metal) is presumably to given their customers the chance to fly part of that trip on QF metal (ie Aus - SIN/HKG and vv) with the rest on Air France. Otherwise, th...

Interesting development and further evidence that QF is responding to passenger's preference to fly on their own metal as much as possible. Which begs the question, why doesn't QF code with BA on their LHR - PAR services? This would allow for a full use of the 2 daily QF services to LHR ex Aus an...

I winder if now is the time for Etihad to join an alliance to give them the network they can't afford to/justify building themselves - so as to have a competitive advantage over Emirates. If they joined Star Alliance they would compliment Ethiopian and keep Egyptair on their toes. They're already...

Unless you're in Business, SQ don't look after their Star Gold members well in SIN at all. The Kris Flyer Gold lounge in Singapore is poor. With oneworld Gold you get access to QF, BA and CX lounges at Changi which all have showers (SQ Gold lounge doesn't). Sadly, SQ don't treat their non J and F...

For intra Europe flights on Lufthansa Group, Aegean etc... The LH Senator Lounge is great as these flights leave from 2A. I was there last week flying to Athens and considered going to 2B to check out United, SQ etc but the return journey back to 2A takes 40 mins. But the SQ and UA lounges are pr...
