Good point and quite so, fixed thanks.
Sep 18, 2017, 08.30 AM / Air China to fly Brisbane-Beijing direct from December 2017
Habul: a good question, and a good chance for us to explain this. We use 'wheels up' as an alternative to 'departure time', simply for the sake of variety in language. This is in keeping with our more mainstream approach and audience (eg we also don't use airport codes or 2400 time) – so w...
Sep 14, 2017, 03.01 PM / Qantas to launch year-round Sydney-Osaka flights
Anthony: you'll still be able to use the BA lounge at Singapore, however that lounge has since been recreated as a business class lounge with a small Concorde Room exclusive for BA's first class flyers – no entry for QF F passengers. Either way, I'd rate the Qantas Singapore lounge as far ...
Sep 06, 2017, 01.19 PM / What will Qantas first class flyers get at the Singapore lounge?
We're hearing that premium economy will be at the front of the lower deck, in line with where the first class cabin is today, but I'd not expect SQ to be beholden to the current lav layout, size or ratio in either the new A380s or the refurb'd birds.

Something else we'll be reporting on, as the domestic Dreamliner flights draw nearer, will be how premium economy seats will be assigned. The Qantas' booking system only provides for business and economy class on domestic flights, so we expect to see the premium economy cabin initially shown only...
Aug 15, 2017, 09.59 AM / Qantas domestic Boeing 787 dates and routes for proving flights?
Nothing has been officially announced, but we've been told to expect a heavy domestic workout for the Qantas Boeing 787 in November, with the red-tailed Dreamliner doing plenty of flying – with a special focus on markets connecting to Perth for the PER-LHR services, which means that A...

Jul 30, 2017, 08.07 PM / First Qantas Boeing 787-9 delivery date
Yes, you read that right! With Malaysia Airlines shifting its Airbus A380s over to a new offshoot airline to carry Muslim travellers on Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages, the airline's CEO Peter Bellew has confirmed to Bloomberg News that the superjumbos will be stripped back to "accommodate as man...
