    BA charges Exorbitant for Seat allocation

    Paid the extortionate BA charge for aisle seats in J upstairs in a 747 BKK LHR. Aircraft was changed to A380 with comparable seating on the upper deck. On departure, aircraft was changed back to a 747 and, despite my protests, was allocated a window seat (which would have cost less) on the...

    2019 Travel Plans

    Booked for economy flight to Cambodia in April on Thai, because QF almost triple and even Air Asia almost double the price!

    Iberia Avios 9000 points per booking dont need to fly

    References to Iberia's less than sterling website struct a cord with me. I had made an online booking for myself and a travelling companion on Iberia the Iberia website. While in Spain recently and on checking the booking on 'manage booking' web page, I noticed that I had inadvertently entered...

    BYOJet ripoff

    Had one positive experience with BYO. Nevertheless, having checked prices with Skyscanner, I prefer to book directly with the airline. I was glad I had done so when Cathay and Etihad bookings to Europe had to be changed urgently owing to a death in the family. Two simple phone calls to the...

    Intro and initial question

    Etihad is advertising $1753, probably a better bet than Philippine Airlines for just a little extra.

    A new member with a question re one-way ticketing

    Yes, ok if the enquirer knows something about the geography of the region. A Cambodian friend checking in on a QF flight to Bangkok, enroute Cambodia, was almost denied boarding because he didn't have an onward plane ticket. The official had to go through two supervisory levels before...

    90 Reasons NOT to Fly Qantas

    #7 compares very unfavourably with Finnair which provided me, in the baggage claim area, with a pre-paid Visa card loaded with Euro135 when I arrived in BKK from HEL with no luggage. lo

    Silkair to CNS

    Among my worst travel experiences: long 3 - 4 hour stop overs on JQ CNS DRW SIN in that god-awful DRW international departure lounge in the middle of the night. (It seemed like eternity!) I hope Silk Air can do better.

    To HEL via the city of SIN; a trip report for those considering Finnair (AY)

    Recently had J with AY return BKK HEL BKK in an A340. Little to recommend it - non lie flat, limited choice of IFE, meals ok, but served by gruff stewards. Got me back to BKK but without my luggage!

    Why JetStar

    Why do some people feel a need to denigrate those who don't have either the resources or the wish to fly up front?

    Status credit puzzle

    I recently flew CNS SYD BKK. Why would I have been awarded more SCs for the CNS SYD sector than for the SYD BKK? Both sectors were on the same economy ticket, with a points upgrade to J for SYD BKK.

    Bangkok shutdown

    Based on information received from a friend in BKK an hour ago, away from the protest sites people seem to be going about their business as usual. What's happening at the protest site is unknown.

    Bangkok shutdown

    Re: Bangkok Lock Down - Emergency declared for 60 days - travel advice? I was there Last Saturday and Sunday for an uneventful transit. The taxi from the airport had to do a slight detour to get to the Mandarin Hotel on Silom IV. That was the only inconvenience I encountered. At night I...
