Refurbished Business class or not... I will stick pick an A330 over a 737 for the trek to Perth.

Someone now needs to come up with something that allows us to connect wireless earbuds and headphones to the onboard entertainment system so that we don't have to be wired in!

I'm surprised CX is rated number 3. I would say that CX is the best of all, especially if you consider the standard of service.

Can't say I agree that Virgin is superior to Qantas to Cathay. I would say that it is on par (as long as Qantas are using the A330). Frequency is on both Cathay and Qantas' side since Virgin is not daily. My pick is still with Cathay as it gives me far more choice for onward connections plus a ch...

Unfortunately I already have both cards... although I'm about to get rid of the ANZ card because they have ceased their affiliation with Amex.

You can check into CX flights at the in town check-in 24 hours before your flight and up to 90 minutes before departure so you should be able to go through to the lounge early enough to relax and enjoy it. The QF lounge is great but so are the CX lounges especially if you can go into the F...

If it's a 777-300ER then it should be the new product. A330 will be Regional and 777-200 may be any of the mix that they fly with.
