    SQ in a time of Covid-19

    Quite a few SQ flights are scheduled to travel via hot spots and bans. Thought we could use this thread until we get back to BAU after the virus. Now that EU - USA flights are out for 4 weeks, who's going to have to reroute or cancel?

    Lord Howe Island tips and tricks

    Thinking that some experiences with accommodation, dining, tours, how many days to visit etc could be useful. It seems that a suggestion is to get the flights and make the accommodation booking immediately just before pressing 'pay' on the flights. Any other suggestions?

    Divisive topics unrelated to travel

    I would like to suggest to the forum managers and users that the forum is friendly and useful on travel related subjects and should be maintained as that exclusively.

    Hi, I'm in J on QF 128 in seat 7 A on a 787. One site I read said rows 3 and 7 in A and K have more privacy. In looking at various online videos I don't see it. Can anyone shed light on that claim please? (I put a generic subject on this so that the thread can be reused or referred to.)
