  • Whilst the article rests on the premise of lounge access availability time, there is a wider range of reasons why airlines keep intermediate layovers short.

  • Feel free to correct me if I am mistaken, but QF's B787-9 Y seat is 32" pitch, not the 30" pitch being offered by Brunei. So the pitch is different and the service level is also.I agree that Royal Brunei offers a compelling product for the price-sensitive traveller and are able to also do this on...

  • Not so curious I think, David.There are some people that have an inherent fear of flying or just plain nervousness that find a single glass of port, wine etc is enough to calm their nerves. Same issue with those who may wish to sleep on a 7 hour flight. I'd rather see someone have a responsible s...

  • Eh? To my way of thinking, Marriott has lost the plot, Member (Entry Level) - basic benefit is 'free wifi'? Would anyone in their right mind stay in a hotel without free wifi? Member rates? Would need to be discernably better than OTA's such as Expedia, etc. Mobile services? Banks trie...

  • I agree with your 'subset' fleet point, but I also think that MH really needs to decide how much it wants to compete in the KUL-(China / India) marketplace, where a true NB lay-flat would be of certain value to them. Currently MH's network around Asia is more predicated on the coastal cities wher...

  • @MRYJDrake, as per FlyDubai's own website : "Emirates Skywards is now the loyalty programme for flydubai, so you’ll be able to earn Skywards Miles, as well as Tier Miles, every time you fly with us or with Emirates, enhancing earning and spending opportunities." I think many would blanch a...

  • @BCTraveller - please note that Air Nostrum is not an LCC. It is an independently owned carrier which operates regional franchise routes in association with Iberia. It is also an Iberia oneworld Alliance partner. It operates both a Business and Economy cabin on many of it's flights - however, foo...

  • "The last thing anyone wants would be the regulator to decide that they were financial products - as that would then create a whole host of regulatory burdens on the program (licensing, compliance, reporting, etc)" With all due respect Brinkers, would this really be such a "bad" thing? Perhaps, i...
