    Economy X pricing

    "Preferred seating" doesn't really work - what are you really getting? Most VA flights board front and rear. You're not out any sooner, and since the main cabin toilets are in the rear, it's not like you're paying for that convenience either, really.

    VA Cancellations, Delays growing?

    Maybe a consequence of the milk run flights - do the stats measure each take off & landing or just the first and last of a particular flight number, I wonder.

    Ha. Curious thing to continue believing, if one is regularly at 40,000ft in a window seat.

    SQ321 LHR-SIN Encountered Severe Turbulence [At least 1 Fatality and 30 Injured]

    No point speculating. Seatbelts help but they won't save you from a 7kg backpack to the head if someone else has stood up and is getting their bag out at the wrong time.

    Careful around DB (Deutsche Bahn)

    What is cost to use sleeping pods in F lounge in AUH?

    SkyBus gone up again [Now $23.90 one way]

    Above or below ground is really dependent on the situation. Underground is by far the better option in Melbourne, it would allow for easier expansion of the airport facilities (and the train line further north, come to think of it)

    Bonza Airline Discussion

    Bonza Airline Discussion

    I do agree broadly however I do have to point out that MCY is council owned so if they are left short by Bonza that will have an impact on everyone in the community.

    The Velocity Status Run Master thread

    Velocity works on a rolling clock so in your case the day(ish) you hit 8 sectors you'd have 12 months to earn a further 800SC and 8 sectors to renew platinum

    **Insert Month here** Coles status credits Late?

    Given there are a mix of users here with different results so far, I wouldn't panic. Just checked with Dad, he hasn't received any either for March.
