    A Duck flies north - to Sweden and Norway

    Interesting that we have all picked on on printing info out. Digital devices are great, really great, but I keep telling our kid and younger colleagues to carry paper and I sometimes feel old. Until the come back with stories of 60min spent arguing at the desk about a booking/ flight/luggage...

    Itinerary for Canadian Rockies

    It looks like you’re going to have an amazing trip. The drive from Banf to Jasper is amazing. As mentioned look for groups of parked cars, they will have stopped to look at bears and probably bear cubs. The drive from Jasper to Kamloops is wilderness. No phone reception and very few towns. Full...

    Emirates taking liberties with medical assistance?

    This was not meant to be ignore the sick or distressed, as I said, it could be the story where your relative /friend needed help. But it should also be about the person on holiday who has given help. This thread started with a post stating EK staff welcomed a member of the public onto a plane...

    Emirates taking liberties with medical assistance?

    Airlines seem happy to ask for help from medical staff when required. And you can think "how would I feel if my relative was sick on a flight?" Has anyone stories of what compensation is offered for helping. When you are on a flight you have paid for a chair, meal and a drink or 2. No one...

    Whats your best experience on a delayed flight?

    We have all been held up on planes going nowhere and it can suck. After one late departure SYD-AKL we arrived very late and sat at the gate for 35 min because they could not get the air-bridge to connect. At 3am we were not amused. But what about the times where a delay is unexpectedly good...

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    Will points club get many more people into the lounges? QC looks full most of the time, so I am wondering how many more expected to have access and how QF are planning to manage

    Qantas priority boarding - crippled by Communists?

    Last month we flew QF158 AKL-MEL. The flight was running late and the departure lounge was packed. The staff announced preferred boarding for business / status and there was a general push to the desk. We were pleasantly surprised to see PB being enforced in English, Spanish and Mandarin. The...
