    Loyalty programs - worse than cigarettes or crack cocaine.

    Great rant, thank you. I gave up my Amex card some years ago on the ground that its profitability is at a high cost to the shopkeeper...

    Angry pax declines to Raise Reclined Seat During Service...

    To wrap up this experience: I received a prompt, polite and apologetic email from CX Customer Relations, addressing my complaint and questions. The writer states "passengers are allowed to recline their seats throughout the flight, except during take-off, landing, MEAL SERVICE and turbulence."...

    Angry pax declines to Raise Reclined Seat During Service...

    forg, if you look like the character in your picture (not dissimilar to angry man in my case), you might get away with your recommendation. I'm smaller, older, have shaky hands and am afraid of angry men.

    Angry pax declines to Raise Reclined Seat During Service...

    That's correct. As a small (but much older) woman, I have some sympathy with the judgment that you don't poke a mad dog, but they should have called for more authoritative assistance.

    Angry pax declines to Raise Reclined Seat During Service...

    SO: is it correct that it's every passenger's right to do as s/he likes within the physical sphere of their seat? Is there no policy or prcedure that requires pax to cooperate with others and with cabin crew? If not, why not?

    Angry pax declines to Raise Reclined Seat During Service...

    They requested him to raise his seat and he refused, asserting it was his right. One of the FAs actually turned to me and agreed, it was his right. No point my asking where was MY right? No point, too, arguing with an angry man.

    Angry pax declines to Raise Reclined Seat During Service...

    I hope to get an apology for lack of support, and perhaps an indication that young female cabin crew get training in dealing with obnoxious pax.

    Angry pax declines to Raise Reclined Seat During Service...

    Last week, I flew home HKG-MEL on CX163 on an E fare, in the middle seat of the middle group of seats. I had a bad experience with the pax in front, who declined my polite request to raise his reclined seat when drinks service began – both services. He berated me angrily both times; in fact, I...

    Pet airport lounge hates

    I find that catching an offender's eye and bringing a finger to my lips, followed by a mouthed 'OK/thanks' usually works, though not always for long...

    Locking luggage

    My bag has one of those ducky little external zipped pockets (as if you'd put your sunnies in it!), in which I have a freezer bag containing spare ties for the return trip and a small box-cutter - such a thin 'package' it's not visible. The box-cutter goes into the aircrafthold inside the bag...

    Just left employer QF Club scheme: any other deals?

    Ouch. I just retired, and now my QF Club membership is up to me (I'm not a gold FF). Any suggestions for cheap(er) membership?

    Hi - what do all the code letters mean?

    Much appreciated if people can recommend a site that explains ticket codes like J, F and Y!
