    Lounges T3 LHR

    Flew out of LHR on 10 sep on QF 10. The BA lounge was packed and the waiting time for the Showers was around 30 - 40 minutes. I swear I was sweating when I left the shower - it was sooo hot in that room, almost made the shower irrelevant, but the change of clothes was worth it.

    Obtaining HK$

    In HK, I have always found the best rates to be the money changers in the little cubicals on the streets. The further from your hotel or markets the better. It pays to shop around, it doesnt take much as they are not far between. I have found a pretty large difference between changers on the...

    First time to Dubai

    Travelling to Dubai for the first time in March and arriving early in the morning i.e. before 5AM. Can anyone suggest or recommend any lounges that an arriving passenger can access before leaving the airport? I would rather spend time and freshen up in the airport lounge than pay for a hotel...

    Melbourne APEC Lane - Inbound

    Arrived back in Melbourne this morning, picked up my duty free and headed towards the left side and - no APEC lane signage....:confused: The immigration hall was reasonably empty so no problem with rocking up to any counter. Has anyone else noticed this, or was it just me missing something...

    September 2008

    Simongr, JohnK's guess is correct - I am a lowly QC mbr only, therefore no access to the CX/KA lounges. I do miss those days of being a Marco Polo Club mbr, they are such nice lounges. Craig

    Priority Luggage

    It's just MEL airport. It would have to be one of the slowest airports for getting the baggage from the plane to the carosel. It doesnt matter if it is domestic or international, priority tagged or not, the experience remains the same - poor:oops:. Cheers Caggs

    Travel to Hong Kong

    It's expensive then because it is the season for the Autumn exhibitions in Oct/Nov. You will see that the hotel prices go up about threefold. A reasonable hotel on HK Island in Wanchai is The Charterhouse. It looks a little dated but most of the rooms have been updated. The sports bar...
