    A new member's opening post is controversial and certainly got attention and prompted a lively debate. airside writes about the importance of Carry-on luggage and suggests that
    making the wrong choice in what to buy could spell disaster
    Our newbie then offers this advice
    hereís a short list of what not to buy: Anything under $100 .. Two wheeled bags .. Hard sided bags .. Garment bags .. Bags that are actually too big to qualify as carry on
    Some members questioned the true motivation behind the poster, and most didnít agree with the 'advice', in particular the point about avoiding 2-wheeled bags.
    Two wheeled vs. four wheeled is an easy choice for carry on - obviously two wheels win. Four wheels eat into the overall size of the bag thus reducing what you can carry.
    but agree that
    2/4 wheels is a fair debate. I have a hard sided 4 wheeler and a 2 wheel soft case- the werks someone else posted above, actually. The 4 wheeler loses a lot of room due to its wheels but is very manoeuvrable on a good surface
    Our Senior Member, anat0l adds that the travellers does need to do some homework so that they are
    well aware of the airline's policies - do not rely on airlines giving leeway, or "but I got away with it last time - why not now" - these do not work and just invite trouble

    Re: 100 days

    Thanks again for reviving memories. Without knowing much about Lubeck before we went there I was surprised how nice it was. Glad you did get the marzipan - but to be honest my wife is keener on it...

    Re: Hertz CDG

    Great minds think alike. I had the Here map as well as Waze open on the iPad, which were good back-ups when the vehicle GPS couldn't cope. Similar problems with ours as with yours. Also similar...

    Re: Current F Lounge Menu (SYD/MEL)

    I found some of the more senior staff in the dining room to be not the most friendly nor the most attentive.

    I've had nothing but fabulous attention and service in the MEL lounge. Usually there of an evening though (which is good since the spa is open).

    Re: Rumour:[Denied by RR] Qantas to ban JQ SYD-MEL pax from F lounges & send to J lou

    Ah ok, too easy.

    I actually think the LM program is pretty good value on most routes when you purchase their miles at the dicounts.

    Re: VA Points Posting On SQ

    We always book directly with SQ and have varying experiences with Velocity SCs and points crediting, ranging anything from 48 hours, to a week, to not at all and having to put in a retro claim.
