    I've got a return SYD CHC in a few weeks, I am assuming the bubble with NZ will not be open by that time. What happens? Does qantas cancel you or do they play 'chicken' with you and its your problem as you can't fly, vs them being able to still operate flights (as in they can fly NZ > SYD so may...

    Qatar airways DOH one world first class lounge review

    Imgur I'm there now. Actually, this is my last lounge in this entire airport to see. It's pretty small, food is only slightly better than the biz ow lounge. Nothing to write home about that for sure. Adequate doesn't even come close as some user put it before. I'd use the...

    AA in Premium Econ MIA > LHR

    Recently, I traveled on this new service, AA56 (upgraded 777), a few points. I was in 16A, which was nice as it's got unlimited leg room. Seat was pretty decent, not hugely roomy width wise though. Recline wasn't great to be honest. The weird bit was placement of the headphones, at the back of...
