    As airport facilities improve...

    Food, drink and ODU's are not the only benefits of lounge access. I know it's boring but some of us catch up on work at the airport so access to internet, printers and faxes and a desk to work can be invaluable. I certainly find it more comfortable working in the lounge than sitting in the...

    QF30 schedule changes

    I always take this flight to HKG because of its timing You can check out of your hotel at a reasonable time in the morning and head straight to Heathrow instead of checking out early getting bags stored and then waiting around all day for a late evening departure. Looks like I will be...

    Durability of New Australian Passports

    After having a safe malfunction at a hotel in Hong Kong and seeing the difficulty they had in opening it to retrieve my things I always feel quite secure using them.

    Durability of New Australian Passports

    My passport is a couple of years old now and holding up well, although the first thing I do when I arrive at my destination is to put it in the room safe, not really to preserve the condition of the passport but because of my ability to loose anything I carry on me.

    A first attempt at a short trip report After the BA strikes were announced and we saw that their flights to Dubrovnik would not be operating we changed our return flights to Austrian Airlines one of the few alternatives on the London Dubrovnik route. Boarding at LHR seemed very disorganised...

    Best J seats on the QF A380

    Good luck with the upgrade Rows 11, 12, 13 in the small forward cabin would be my pick and probably the E/F seats because both have access to the aisle so there is no one climbing over you. If you do get a window seat it is possible to squeeze past the seat when it is fully reclined without...

    Domestic Seat Selection - Good or Bad?

    I was wondering the same thing. I booked six flights yesterday and the best seat I could get was row six. Rows four and five were blocked for all flights. Before advanced seat selection I could usually manage row four for 90% of my bookings. I suppose you can try and change your seat when you...
