Chris theres a very easy way to tell if the 777 with the new J and F seats is flying your route - it will only be if you are flying to BRU or GVA (or STN from July). They are only planning to have 4% of their fleet with the new product in the next few years so I doubt Brisbane would even make the...

The tipping culture symbolises everything that is broken in the USA.
Jan 10, 2018, 12.13 AM / Should you tip the staff in US airport lounges?
"Qatar Airways' superjumbo has the same spacious and well-appointed business class seats as the Boeing 777 it replaces"Ummm this is incorrect. Each aircraft has very different products

I would guess SQ322
Dec 14, 2017, 09.50 PM / First review: Singapore Airlines' new A380 business class seat
Christ what a mess. Would they not reconfigure even 2 of the A380s into high density for religious pilgrimages? Do they really think spending the money updating J seats on planes they can’t fill is a good use of their limited money? They don’t need more capacity on certain routes...
Dec 12, 2017, 07.58 PM / Malaysia Airlines is bringing its Airbus A380s back to London
Business travellers (who are paying full price for premium seats) would rather leave at night and arrive early morning rather than miss a full day of work sitting on a Wi-Fi-less plane
Sep 20, 2017, 07.50 AM / Why are there no daytime US-Australia flights?
If EY had commenced services before QR with a 4 weekly, 2 class 787 I think they could have made it work given their strong relationship with VA (ADL is the easiest airport in Australia to transit) and better name recognition in Australia.But ADL cannot support all 3 and as others have said,...
Jul 15, 2017, 01.44 AM / Why does Etihad not fly to Adelaide?
I’m a big fan of VA but share others concerns that this route will not last long. It’s certainly not unusual to constantly discount a new route for the first 6-12 months in order to fill seats and most airlines expect to lose money on new routes initially. However this route has ...
Jun 14, 2017, 01.26 AM / Worried about Virgin's new Melbourne-Hong Kong route
None of the TG J lounges are that great. I quite liked the SQ lounge there - very quiet, peaceful, nice view over the gardens and plenty of hot food options.
Dec 06, 2016, 08.33 PM / Star Alliance lounge options in Bangkok
Virgin are not going to make separate Plat areas in their lounges. For starters several lounges simply dont have the room and it would be extremely expensive to install separate food, bar etc areas. Where the kitchen is part of the normal lounge and there was no room to build a separate kitchen (...
