    Port Moresby Crowne Plaza advice needed

    Confirming with Tawita that you can access the new paradise lounge in POM with QF status but you must have a QF flight number. The new lounge (and airport as a whole) is a huge improvement on the old one - it is actually quite pleasant going there. There are a lot of new new shops, bars and...

    World's best selling beers

    My friend works at Dan Murphy's (QLD) - he said their biggest seller by far is Corona (10 pallets) and second is xx_X Gold (2 pallets). I guess VB would be more popular down south.

    Should I go to Iraq?

    After over 8 years in PNG I guess I am after a change... so far I have been lucky and haven't had any security issues in PNG. The people have been great.
