    BOSE 3 Prong ?? Business Class QANTAS

    Maybe the domestic planes are different, but I was recently on QF8 in economy and accidentally sat on the adaptor while it was plugged in. That pretty much snapped the metal pin. So I just used the plug on the headphone and I could only get sound on one side for the rest of the journey.

    F Lounge Pass/Invite

    I'll be travelling with my folks in Dec, but my WP status can only get 1 of them in. (Content moderated) I'm also watching the Lounge Meet thread, nothing yet though. Alternatively, do you think the lounge dragon will let me through with both of them? I don't want to entertain eBay just yet...

    Qantas / Emirates tie up (Partnership inc. Codeshare, Status)

    All this meat talk isn't the best thing to read first thing in the morning... Now I want a bacon and egg roll... Mmmm... Bacon... Oops, bacon is pork... On a slightly more serious note, if you don't like DXB as a transit point to Europe, there are still plenty of options, HKG, BKK, NRT, PVG...

    Should airlines put gate numbers on boarding passes?

    Isn't the issue more about the design and usability of the boarding pass? They should look at not having data is can be mistaken so close to each other. The situation can be made worse if the printer is slightly off and the fields don't match up to the values. Given the sequence number is...

    Targeted Survey (1500 points) - Hilton Visa Card

    Got a targeted survey worth 1500 points if you qualify and complete it. It's about a Hilton Visa card. I thought they always have a co-branded card and the Premium Club (or something that many AFFers use)? Anyway, these are the benefits that are floated in the survey. The cost suggested is...

    Questions/Advice on OW xONE RTW fare in Y

    If your friend is in Perth, would starting in South Africa be any better? I know you can save significantly if going business class, but I'm not sure about economy... If you do start elsewhere, you need to get all 4 people to that starting point, even if the savings are there, it's just a lot...

    Virgin Australia Business Class Catering - Service, Meal times, Menus

    I was given a (comprehensive) wine list on the new A330 at breakfast time. But at dinner time on an ex-EK bird, there was no wine list.

    Virgin Australia A330 pulled from MEL-SYD daily?

    Recently did SYD-PER and return on the A330 (both in J). The outbound was on the newer seats, and the return was on the older ex-EK seats. There's a big difference in experience, IMHO. If you're going SYD-MEL, i.e., a 1-hour 'taster' flight, I wouldn't bother if it's an ex-EK aircraft. It...

    Access to Virgin International Lounge in Sydney

    Virgin doesn't have their own lounge at SYD International. They use the NZ lounge. If your colleagues gain access through Velocity status, they can bring you in. Virgin's guest policy doesn't seem to say the guest must travel on the same flight as the member (unless it's buried in the T&C's...

    "Bonus Confirmed Complimentary Upgrade"?

    I'm sure VA will have that stats, but as a straw poll, how many of us actually used our initial quota? I've only used 2 out of 4, and that was deliberate for the AFF Do. My domestic travel has dropped to nothing this year. I'm still 1 or 2 sectors short of re-qualifying though, so I may need...
