    Going to Portugal and Covid entry restrictions

    Just returned from Portugal on Monday, we flew from Seville to Lisbon prior to the update and the Aussie certificate was accepted at check in with TAP, I guess make sure that it's not a requirement of the airline to travel. Upon landing at Lisbon as per expectations from a Schengen country there...

    Holidays and Airport 'Chaos' 2022

    No sorry, no priority for me anymore, this was a standard Y class check-in and non fast track security. To be fair security was not too bad we were just held up by a few who had left loads of liquids in their hand luggage and had to be searched which took off staff from other duties creating a...

    Holidays and Airport 'Chaos' 2022

    Just my feedback from last Saturday at LHR and MEL - We were on the QF2 and arrived at T3 around 17.45 to check for the 21.05 departure. Spent 2.5 hours to check in and get through security, managed to grab a quick bite to eat. The airport displays were showing boarding at 20.40 and gate closing...

    Melb airport only just open for business

    Cheers it looks like a little move around since I was last there, Two John's is still in the same place. It is a shame they put all those posh shops where there used to be a great view and pizza place/bar.

    Melb airport only just open for business

    If that was after duty free that may have been Movida ? Two John's is after the second little duty free near to the lounge escalators. But thanks, at least I know I can get more overpriced alcohol and Spanish snacks.

    Melb airport only just open for business

    Thanks for this info, I had my suspicions that this would be the case, I am travelling through there on EK407 with no lounge access early June. One burning question did you notice if the pub was open in T2 post security (Two John's) ? The airport web site says "no" but e-mails from their...

    Marhaba Lounge Melbourne (T2)

    Has anyone recently used the Marhaba Lounge in the International terminal ? I am mulling over whether or not to use it on an upcoming trip back to the UK to see folks (first time in 6 years !!) in Y. Does it get busy in the evenings (21.15 EK flight) and is there a bun fight for seats/tables...

    Best current option at MEL for SQ?

    For me always the NZ lounge over SQ J. NZ has windows out onto the airfield whereas the SilverKris lounge has one internal window onto the arrivals corridor. The NZ lounge is at least three times the size and the food choice is far better as well.
