Crikey I'm feeling like a square peg in a round hole on this topic. I love the NZ Business Premier Seat, food and Service. I'm only annoyed that the LH/Swiss RTW Business fares I use now exclude NZ flights across the pacific so I'm back on UA or Qantas. Anyway each to their own and I can see both...

Wow. If Qantas had any sense they would look at upping the weight for business/plat/gold to 10kg. Im heading to Hong Kong via Sydney and have my roll on on at 7kg and a laptop bag at 2.5. I would rather pack my lap top in the 1 bag and have just that to worry about 1 roll on

Hi Purpledecker. How did you go with the automated passport entry. I'm heading to HKG next week and curious. Thanks

I would love to see a Mel-Hnl direct on Qantas even just twice week on the days that the flights don't go from Syd. I have taken the Air NZ option and found it a great alternative to Jetstar or via Syd on QF

Yes Booked for August and shows 747. I'm hoping it goes back to A330 before then but not holding my breath.

For goodness sake they really need to increase the weight to 10kg across all airlines. If it's OK for low cost Jetstar to offer 10kg carry on for a fee you would think anything FF silver and above or Business fare should be 10kg.

I do think 7kg is a bit light on. 10kg is ideal from my perspective. depending on the bag it can weigh 1kg or more on its own. I do agree with the post above that if you cant lift it yourself no matter how light then check it

It seems to change every month. Its hard to keep up
