    Moving Seats Etiquette

    This reminds me of the time I accidentally left some money in the front pocket (locked) of my suitcase and checked it in for a flight in Busan, Korea, only to collect it in Seoul with the front flap flapping in the breeze and the cash missing! On topic, regarding the article, and the comments...

    Moving Seats Etiquette

    Recommendations BNE to DFW via SYD or LAX?

    My original thought - how do I avoid it? Thus the LAX connection idea. However, I decided I don't need the stress for 13 hours on the flight to LAX waiting to see if we arrive on time or not. Recent arrival times for QF15 are all over the shop and 3 out of 7 were more than 15 minutes late. At...

    Recommendations BNE to DFW via SYD or LAX?

    Thanks both Daver6 & justinbrett, for your feedback on the trip, and the opinions about the 787 vs 380. This is what I love about this site! Via SYD it is. Cheers peakhour

    Recommendations BNE to DFW via SYD or LAX?

    QFF Faithful I'm heading to Dallas from Brisbane this weekend on Qantas. I've 2 options - to go via LAX on the 787 or via SYD on the 380, both in Y. Departure time is similar 9:05AM vs 10:10AM and arrival is also similar around 1PM. Catch is both have tight transit's, <2hrs in SYD and 2hrs...

    Transfer to Krisflyer from Westpac Altitude Rewards

    I just got off the phone with Krisflyer who told me that it will take 2 to 4 weeks for the points I transferred 3 days ago to hit my account?!? Has anyone had experience transferring from Altitude to Krisflyer and how long did it take?

    For sure. How does Joe Public know that though? The airline should not be putting the pax in the situation where the chance of missing the connection is so high. It's easy for us all to sit here and say so having had the experience. Surely in 2017 a customer can expect just a little...

    What is the attraction of lounges?

    Agree. Example the much maligned kfeg lounges in Singapore. I don't love them and sometimes bypass them. However this week I will pass through Changi 4 times including one stopover for 7 hours, and I was there last week. The terminals don't hold much interest, and often either I have work to...

    Minimum layover time for a city visit

    I've done a sunlight stopover in Singapore many many times on the way through. Land between 3-3:30pm, through immigration, taxi to Clarke Quay. Back to Changi T2 by 7:30pm with plenty of time to spare for 8:25pm departure. All SQ on a single ticket of course. Bit of sunshine and is a welcome...

    Thanks All So at the least we all agree, publishing a fare with a 65 minute connection is ambitious at best. As I mentioned, no complaints re the service, I was put onto the earlier connecting flight when I asked. Which I only knew to do, since I have done BNE-SYD-SOMEWHERE a few, maybe 15...

    Yes I had to arrive in Tokyo this morning for a meeting later today and other commitments meant I had to depart after yesterday's 10:55AM direct flight so the connection via Sydney was most practical to meet my schedule. Am taking the direct flight home.

    Hi All I just did the domestic to international transfer in Sydney again last night on my way to Tokyo. This time I had someone book it for me online and they selected a connection that had only 1:05hrs between flights. Apparently the other option available was 2:05hrs (what I would...

    A sad goodbye to M*****0 (passport expiry)

    139 stamps/visas in my full Nxx_xx_x that I renewed yesterday after 4.5 years. I'll miss the easy to remember number for sure when filling out departure amd arrival cards!
