    Answered When does Qatar check-in open in SYD

    I can confirm this from personal experience now. Opens 3 hours prior. QR counters are right at the end of the terminal too (southern end) so you get the pleasure of a decent walk, especially if you're going to the fast track security line.

    Christmas Island. (AFF community report)

    Wouldn't private health ambulance cover be sufficient for medical evacuations given this is part of Australia?

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Correct. Although it did at least mean the Chardonnay I had with dinner was actually at the correct temperature. What annoyed me was how poorly it was handled for breakfast. I had filled out the meal card that included muesli, croissant, toast with marmalade and a hot item. I was just...

    Connecting through Hong Kong.

    I believe a travel agent should be able to book the two tickers on one PNR giving you protection should your inbound flight cause you to miss your outbound. While 90 minutes is enough there is no way I would risk it without connection protection.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    QF10 that departed LHR on Tuesday. About 3 hours into the flight they announced the refrigeration system had failed. No way to fix it. So anything that needed to be kept cool wouldn't able to be served post 4 hours into the flight. Usual ridiculously slow J meal service, I still hadn't been...

    Upgrade just came through about 18 hours before departure. No confirmation SMS, but noticed in the app. Woohoo :)

    Flight Availability/Loadings & Upgrade Probability Help Desk

    I currently have a shadow. A week ago with J9 I was half hoping for the upgrade to clear. I just read that yesterday's QF10 flight had to return to LHR after a tail strike. I guess that now explains the full load.

    The view from my "office"

    View from the Dan lounge, courcourse E at TLV. This is the new lounge that BA uses. Bigger, brighter and newer than the old one. Still nothing special.

    Question QF cancels one leg of return trip

    QF have cancelled China flights due to the Corona virus outbreak. Do you actually need to go to Shanghai or just using that as a transit on the way home? If the latter, ask QF to find you an alternative route from from Taipei. If the former, they should be able to get you home another way. I'm...

    If you're all on the same booking then it shouldn't be an issue.

    Qatar lounge in Singapore T1 (Opened Jan. 2020)

    That's interesting. I take AA F to be pretty average, whereas I thought the QR LHR lounge was amazing. It sounds quite similar to the SIN lounge from the above descriptions.
