    Window shades

    Totally agree. Qantas have worked out how to do "just" enough service to qualify as service.... whether J is full, or only 2 PAX, you will receive the same amount of service... in my opinion (no, I am not God - everything I say is an opinion)

    Frustration with Accelerate (Business Program/Portal)

    Has this happened yet? I am trying to add ABNs to existing bookings and cannot work it out... I am desperate to love Virgin - I seriously want to consider ditching the red rat - but from what I have experienced the past few months, VA's IT systems are woeful. I can't for example, work out the...

    Question JAL domestic bookings via JAL website - how far in advance can you book?

    Yeah it is quite staggering..... Japan, who excel at many, many things, fall down in the most unexpected of places. JAL, for example. One of the world's largest airlines has the worst reservation system (as we all experience). It is almost childlike in its simplicity.

    Answered The Emirates First Experience - What to Expect?

    It's not silly. Just because someone doesn't agree with you doesn't make it silly.... I think that in the context of "what to expect from Emirates First Class" - a question asked by someone that has never flown it, under-selling the bar, and instead opting to talk to cabin crew (who won't be...

    JAL domestic SC earn

    Not revealing my sources, but I know for a fact how manual and rubbish the points/SC crediting process is for partner airlines. Basically, the partner airline sends Qantas a flat file (i.e. an excel csv file), and Qantas just sucks that in. Often, the partner airlines don't enter the data into...

    Answered The Emirates First Experience - What to Expect?

    Ok great.... But what about your real friends??? You do realise that talking to a random at the bar is the same as talking to the random flight attendant EXCEPT the random at the bar isn't a prisoner and being forced to listen to passenger stories :-) There are also FAs in the bar itself so it...

    Lol... who wants to chat to the staff when you can sit at the bar? Take your own bottle of Dom to the bar, and share it with your drinking buddies... make friends fast!

    Question JAL domestic bookings via JAL website - how far in advance can you book?

    So basically JAL is becoming a normal airline! Come September 10th 2019 you can buy tickets 330 day in advance (not quite a year but still...)

    Frustration with Accelerate (Business Program/Portal)

    I just applied to join Accelerate on behalf of my business - thinking of taking all my business from QF because I am sick of them - and the questions I keep getting asked from the Accelerate team are CRAZY. What are my social media accounts? What other online presence to do you? Etc.... I don't...

    Question JAL domestic bookings via JAL website - how far in advance can you book?

    So I have trawled the internet for days.... and have found NOTHING on any travel/airline forum..... so was forced to go into the Japanese version of the website myself and look at the fine print in Japanese.... and now I can answer the question for everyone!! Basically it is totally confusing...

    Let us know your most outrageous thoughts on any topic about flying

    Also I have never ever said that Qantas is the best at anything. I’ll give you $4 if you can quote me saying qantas is good. But.... I’ll take you up on your challenge.... better and cheaper than EK? Sure we can do cheaper, but “better” is subjective, and I’ve already exhausted myself arguing...
