Sounds great but given the volumes of passengers passing through, I wonder if that's viable? Probably cause more frustration and disappointment than good.

Curious. Who does long layovers in Sydney?
Feb 23, 2018, 05.09 PM / What do you want from Qantas' new Sydney business class lounge?
Sadly I totally agree. The Alitalia staff have historically waged war against any management that tried to restructure. There is a mentality that the government will step in to save them. It's a shame as they're digging their own graves and any airline that picks up the pieces won't given them an...

Feb 20, 2018, 05.07 PM / Tips for speeding your way through Sydney Airport
Thanks Chris. I don't live in Oz so perhaps the regs are different in Sydney. Was thinking of liquids 100ml or less, not bottles of alcohol.Here in Europe, when you buy duty free, so long as each item is 100ml or less, you can just carry it in your hand luggage in plastic bag as normal regardless...

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...

Good point Michael Kao. Garuda have transformed themselves product wise, including new aircraft and an on board hard and soft product that is excellent. But money can't change a safety culture which is entrenched, as with many Asian carrier, in subservience to the Captain. That can be an issue on...

Most customers BA cares about are their top tier frequent fliers - namely oneworld Emerald and Sapphire. They know these people get lounge access and most will be eat there before the flight and perhaps chage their behavior to visit the lounge now that BoB is being introduced. These people won't ...
