    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: "oneworld" award (140K/280K/420K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    Have a look on the AA site for availability. Could be a QF/AA system issue, or AA might be doing some sort of broader change

    Re: Third party insurance for Car hire in NZ

    Its ACC, not the ACCC

    3rd party in NZ is a common insurance that means you are covered for any damage to other property when you are at fault in an accident.

    Re: Third party insurance for Car hire in NZ

    I wonder if you could ring up the likes of AA Insurance and take out a 3rd party policy on the/a rental car in NZ. That would only cost you $15 for a month, and can simply cancel after a month.

    Living in Asia I've been flying SQ a bit over the past 3 years and sadly got to report IMO they are going downhill big time of late.
