    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: What is Platinum QFF Worth?? $1600AUD?

    As others have said - only you can decide.

    Me? $1597 for approx 536SCs - I'd snatch your hand off - but then I could probably better utilize the QF-specific WP benefits more than being UK based...

    Re: Ask The Pilot.

    Any update (preferably from Hotel staff) when exactly the change will occur? This thread is title "...from May 31". But the OP article says "after 31 May" (but the link is now dead).
