    Ha! Well I know when I have lost a battle - I humbly withdraw :)

    Jetstar Blues

    I also believe in operating as one advertises - without rules there would be anarchy right? But it is not that at all - it is the lack of compassion under such inconvenient circumstances. "Good service" = understanding the customer. I am talking about Brisbane airport. Where you can literally...

    Jetstar Blues

    BAD Attitude! BAD service! EVeryone seems to have a horror story! Arrived to checkin at 29mins - fine this was inside the 30 minute close window - but come-on! It was the 3rd last flight of the day Bris-Syd. No more seats available on anything sorry sir. You'll have to come back...

    Overweight man sues Air France over seat row

    I think bigger customers should definately have to buy a bigger or a second seat. Because it is their neighbours that are affected. I don't like having to lean into the isle because the big person next to me is taking up more than our shared armrest, or having my legs squashed sideways because...

    Stick with Qantas? Or book with Virgin?

    Loyalty only goes so far. Why give your money away for the sake of being loyal? I consider myself loyal to Qantas whenever they are loyal to me... but in the case of next week when I couldn't make an award booking due to non-availability - I said - screw you Qantas and booked with Virgin...

    Your travel in 2006...monthly updates

    How do you guys figure out your YTD's (without copying and pasting all your monthly webpages together in MS Excel)? So I'm skipping the YTD, too much effort. Nov - 5658 miles, 8 flights

    Flights not called from The Lounge...

    One morning in Sydney, I checked in and arrived in time to get my toast and yoghurt from QC. Sat down, listened and waited, listed and waited. No call for my flight, checked the TV, low and behold the flight was not on the tv. I approached the counter to ask what happened, the gentleman told...

    Qantas online checkin launched!!

    hmmm... perhaps you were the contingency plan. Just in case no-one shows up in row 1, you would be the one calling 'women and children first' as you help people onto the inflatable slide.

    Duty Free Immigration Lane inbound at SYD

    Actually, I'd prefer to pack myself and I wouldn't expect him to offer. Every time I go through the scanner at Sydney and have to take of my belt shoes and watch, I don't expect them to help me get dressed either. But it was his manner, he was a bit rude - the essence is hard to capture with...

    Qantas online checkin launched!!

    I suspect that it registers after you declare that you have no explosives. I often don't print, but am still 'checked in'.

    Duty Free Immigration Lane inbound at SYD

    The Duty Free lane bugs me - because it is discriminatory, but I bought some duty free anyway, so I was lucky ;) - but when I got to quarantine, the guy asks me what I have in my bag - i told him, he opened it up, pulled a couple of things out and left them there on the bench and said "OK...

    Qantas online checkin launched!!

    I always use olci for seat preference and mroe sleep time in the mornings, but don't always have access to a printer - I pick up my bp from the gate just before I board. Every time I have done this, the service person says in a surprised voice "oh - you checked in online".

    Qantas FF and Cathay Pacific

    We're back now, thanks for your help guys. So in summary we visited both Cathay louges in HK- one on the way over and one on the way back. My fav was the one with all the video games. I didn't take one piece of advice offered to me however - that was to print out a copy of my statement to...
