Sorry, “wellness” meals?. Please! Get up and walk around a bit
Aug 15, 2018, 09.51 PM / Singapore Airlines: healthy 'wellness' meals for non-stop NY flights
I agree re the endless US carrier bashing. There are some weaknesses in their operations for sure, and I for one do avoid United whenever possible, but they successfully move a lot of people every day across a huge network. A smile and a cheerful hello goes a long way, be it from a passenger or ...
Jul 31, 2018, 02.43 PM / Delta One business class suites coming to Sydney-Los Angeles in 2019
While the business suite is nice, overall isn't this Qantas 787 story getting a bit over-hyped? I mean we have over 700 787's delivered now, sit at any major airport around the world and you can quickly get into double digits counting them. Actually, as I type this it occurs to me the the sing...

This is a good point. Noise canceling is great for steady noise, but you can hear conversations several rows away. I do find they’re great in a sports car on a noisy Australian course chip road though!

Same here. I like they’re small, light, have good battery life, plug into the phone and into the aircraft audio, and have decent if not great sound. My older QC3’s sit at Ho,e in the cupboard. Too big.

Have seen this many times over the years. American use a seat in row 1 on their trans Pac flights as a rotating flight crew rest seat which is much the same.

Intersting how this has evolved into a cash vs. card discussion as well. Here in the US I always try to keep a few $1 bills in my wallet, yes for tips. But unless I’m traveling the only place that’s really needed is valet parking and the car wash. And in LA you do valet pretty ofte...

I leave coins on the bedside table in my hotel room. Tip for the cleaning crew.

It’s also a US thing. Not uncommon for houses to have wall outlets in a bedroom wired to the light switch but no ceiling light.
