    Airbus factory tours - anyone done them?

    So it was pretty much like Sethor said. The viewing platform was a long way from A380s being assembled, the guide had a few facts but less than you could glean from Wikipedia, and the final video (of the first test flight) was only moderately diverting. I wouldn't bother going unless you were...

    I have one of these fares, booked through Expedia, and was able to make a date change for only the change fee of $200 -no additional fare collect! Hope this information is useful if any of you hold one of these fares :)

    Mel-lax oct/nov rt from $444 us qantas

    I booked one for my partner. $595 USD return in February next year. I agree that this was not a clear mistake fare. It still cost a substantial amount of money (almost $800 AUD), and is within 20% of previous sale fares and what other airlines charge. Lots of things would have played into...

    Advice on return travel options please - injured family member in USA

    Can't use TEDS nor intermittent compression devices on the injured leg. Enoxaparin/ Dalteparin would be (bare minimum) essential if it was me or my family members travelling. If he can't get access to these, then he should not fly, even it means staying put in the US for 6 weeks. I have seen too...

    Orlando to Sydney

    You will arrive at T4 in LAX. It is about a 50 metre walk landside to Tom Bradley, or you can take the airside transfer bus. It is not a difficult procedure.

    Is there a doctor on the plane?

    Law is evolving, and you are extremely unlikely to be liable for failing to render assistance, but there is precedent - have a read of Lown v Woods NSW SC 1995 (as previously mentioned in this thread). Liability was established for failure to leave a GP practice and render assistance to a...

    Is there a doctor on the plane?

    I speak as an anaesthetic registrar, and my ideal team for dealing with an on-board medical emergency would include a MICA paramedic. The skills that are required - managing sick patients in an unfamiliar environment with limited resources, and co-opting a team of lay rescuers - are practiced by...

    Hi all have an urgent Question regarding visa waiver

    You would have to lie on your ESTA form to be granted VWP, as you are ineligible. I can't tell you if US CBP officers will have access to Australian police records, so you may or may not be detected. Choice is up to you.

    Airport security 'allowed to read your emails'

    Pretty sure the US, UK, and Australia have granted customs similar powers. There is a discretionary, practically unappealable right to deny entry to non-citizens that have the practical effect of forcing travellers to surrender their passwords and (a copy of) their hard drives. In fact, IIRC...

    Where to buy Duty Free?

    Try looking in the non-duty free shopping centres in Manila. It was cheaper to buy grog there than the airport last time I visited, so the same may apply to perfume.
