    Public Transport etiquette in the COVID Era

    MEL is COVID free, and apparently road traffic is back to 90%+ of premorbid levels, so thought I might consider taking PT (bus/train/tram) again for work. During the depths of lockdown the cabins were rather empty, it appears there is great patronage I think. Yes, I see the signage on...

    Economy vs Premium Meals

    My family travelled on QF36 in both classes. Was a bit suprised the choices for the dinner were the same except Neil's leaves! I travelled in Premium and enjoyed the hot breakfast though. I felt that was better than the usual egg and bacon roll in J! Not sure what happened here.

    Difference between aircraft on MEL-PER route

    Has there ever been a wiki / comparison of the differences between the 737/787/A330 for MEL - PER? I've seen some posts in relation to J but not Y. Anyone has any preferences?

    Children's meal on QF Domestic

    Does QF load (on request) children's meals for domestic flights? If the flight in question only offers a refreshment service, is there a children's version? BTW, I'm not expecting much and my toddler can tolerate (usually) an adult meal/snack in most cases... Thanks

    What to do with 350,000 points?

    My mortgage bonus has arrived to my account. What is the best use / best conversion rate? I have no plans to add to the balance and will close the acct once the points are used up. Mrs Texter suggests cashing the points in for Coles/Woolworths card is the most practical. Suggestions?

    Looking at going to CDG in July 2018. The current QF sale J fare is $7171 from MEL, however that fare is only available on EK metal. So my Qs are: 1) When is a good time to buy a ticket for 7/18? 2) QF9/10 is not discounted (currently $16k return), are the prices likely to drop at all...

    CBR Business Lounge food

    After my meeting finishing at 5PM, I now realise that I have a good 2 hours at the airport next week before the next flt out (8:30). Given it is dinner time, would it be a wrong strategy to request an upgrade to J so that I can eat something more decent(?) in the J lounge (as opposed to the QP)...

    Row 39 on A330 33K

    Anyone with experiences travelling in this row? In particular the leg room being the first row? I've noticed the change of cabin layout from 33G to 33K (the new layout with one fewer PE row). The seatmap on CX suggests less leg room on the newer layout, assuming it is drawn to scale.
