I used to use the Sydney one a bit when REX did the Armidale run. It's simple but a break from the T2 rat run. Was always under-utilised. If you aren't on VA, there is no other lounge access in T2. There's always MoVida but a user pays lounge would offer some solace for the Jetgo, JQ, TT, Aerope...

My Mum and her Probus Club crew will be thrilled. And the timing is good because I'm doing a duty dinner with them tomorrow evening. I've taken a screenshot of this page and will pass the iPad around over the pickled cucumber and supermarket Brie on crackers and will spread the word. I'm not sur...

This does look good, now, if only VA could address their woeful J product on the workhorse of their fleet, the 737s

Much as I'm a fan of UberX, congestion on the access roads into and out of SYD make the train a no brainer for me

Very interesting article Chris. What's not to love about deeply discounted bizzo fares. But ... VA's 737 J product is rubbish, "junk business class" as somebody on Ausbt rightly called it recently. Is bizzo SYD - MEL on a VA 737 even worth $221 ? The 330's over to Perth are another matte...

I think you would have to take it to the next level and sleep with the controller to get any results. I think someone should run a quantitative study into this. Maybe Ausbt could sponsor it ..... Might be a PhD in it.

Last night on the 330 it was still/sparkling water, juice, or champagne. delly is right, the champagne is pretty ordinary. I actually thought it might have been N.V. Bolly cause it had that slightly chemically cheap Bolly aftertaste. The passion fruit roulade on the other hand, wa...

I dunno Chris, the Perth thing is old, but it's gold. I consider it one of the quirky aspects of this site and rather enjoy hearing from the Perth boosters on a regular basis. Although they do rather hog the limelight. Where is the cheer squad for the other lesser cities - DRW, ADL, HBA etc ? Emb...

I' m a regular traveller into Hobart and am enjoying watching the city enjoy a MONA led upswing. There are good places to stay (Henry Jones) and good places to eat (Templo, Franklin etc). There's MONA and the posh pit out there. What's there's not is an international service. Hobart and Tasmania...
