    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

    Hi All. Old member here, haven't posted in a very long time!

    Re: Take away food from lounge

    I take 4 or 5 of the mints from the bowl at the QF lounge desks. Honestly cannot recall taking any other food/drink from the lounge (barring what is already inside me ;) ) though the 'one bottle of...

    Re: AA's SYD-LAX flight

    Now with AAEagle re-checkin (post interline changed thanks to Blighty) at T4/6 for Eagles Nest , would it be worth it doubling back via TBIT security in the morning then use airside connectors to T4...

    Re: EK upgrade "Love" on QF / EK coded flights - success rate?

    Go get 'em PF! Not good enough.

    Out of curiosity, how did you select your seats? We've found that one must do it on the Emirates website, not QF. If you do it on QF they never stick. Seems to be...

    Re: New AA campaign on flyer etiquette - lets hope it works

    Bingo. My wife who's an AA EXP (for years) gets treated pretty terribly. The latest was our July flight where, even in J, she couldn't get an extra pillow, even at 6 months pregnant and the plane not...

    Re: Oneworld separate ticket interline changes

    Is it possible to "like" this more than once? One of my biggest gripes about this is that QF have not made a public announcement and did not contact existing ticket holders to advise them of the...

    Re: AA's SYD-LAX flight

    I got bumped last year on a SFO-LAX flight that was a confirmed upgrade via SWU. I got a $300 voucher and put on next flight. It was totally fine - just spent a bit more time in lounge and got $300...
