    All International Arrivals into Australia to self isolate for 14 days

    Trying to transit but getting in touch with BA is a challenge. It appears that we should be able to self isolate in Sydney and then continue... This is an extract from health.gov.au If you have a layover, you must remain in the airport or self-isolate in your accommodation for the transit...

    All International Arrivals into Australia to self isolate for 14 days

    I'm in AKL... I am booked to SYD and the one night later SYD/SIN/LHR/ZRH. Do I self isolate in SYD for one night or 14 nights? Change plans? Do I? Can I? Should I? Confused ooh ROo Willie

    Sydney QF First Lounge v Emirates Business Lounge

    I generally am more than disappointed with the QF Flounge at SYD. It resembles a high level cafeteria at peak times and it can take forever to get a table let alone a drink other than Champagne. Earlier this year it took close to 40 minutes to be served a Negroni . The staff said that there was...

    What is it with people/ PAX and lounge food

    What is it with people/ PAX and lounge food

    This blows me away... I was in the HKG CX First Class Wing on Friday and three travellers rocked in and spent one hour blatantly filling containers with food and loading them into a trolley bag. They also helped themselves to bottles of water, wine.... end even the champagne complete with...

    Expired credit card at check in

    I remember a few years ago when purchasing air tickets online direct with QF, IB and TG in Hong Kong, Spain and Thailand and being advised during the booking process that the credit card used for the booking was required to be sighted at check in. I don't remember ever actually being asked for...

    QF No Longer Printing FF Number on Boarding Passes

    I noticed this inconsistency really and wondered... I recently flew 2 x QF and 2 x AY sectors - all connecting flights. The first QF BP and the 2 x AY BPs had the FF number, the second QF flight didn't have the number - how odd! It was different for all three of us travelling too. OOh ROo

    QF to fly BENDIGO to SYD!

    Recently flew to BXG - great flight, great crew, a few wines... couldn't go wrong. Excellent leg room on the Q300. One empty seat on the flight down... sadly no flights on Sunday so travelled to Melbourne for the return. Shame re the lack of a Sunday service - but a morning departure woudn't...
