    Project Sunrise - what is it going to mean for non-Sunrisers?

    Haven't cheap short haul domestic fares long since disappeared? 😁

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    I'm with Dr. Ron on this. OK, granted I live in Singapore, but I feel totally comfortable going back there next week (been working remotely in Australia this week, for non virus related reasons). I think for some reason (climate or resources being thrown at it or both) , it is not "exploding"...

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    Does it dislike religion? 🤪 OK, joking, but a lot of the cases in Singapore are linked to two churches, and some of the cases in Korea are as well. And of course the holy city of Qom in Iran. Of course these scenarios bring people together very closely, and it least in the version of...

    VA removing FF numbers from boarding passes

    Really? How is removing the FF number from the BP going to stop this. It took me about 2 secs to think of a way to get lounge access without FF number on BP under this scenario, you let them sign into you FF account on the app or give them your membership card. If doing it for status credit...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure?

    But economically, a mix of 787-800s and 900s probably would be a great replacement for current fleet ...covering the 330 and 777 routes.

    Air New Zealand Economy Skynest

    I suspect any airline would have to be very very careful not to diminish demand for business class and premium economy through such a product. Maybe that's why this hasn't been seriously looked at. If you're talking about 200cm length (if it is uniform), 58 cm width, that's potentially offers...

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    Yet, the provinces in China surrounding Hubei (in close proximity to Wuhan), are Hunan, Henan, Jiangxi, Anhui, and from the latest WHO figures those provinces have a combined population of 275,000,000, with the number of cases reported is 4210 and loss of 30 lives. Of course these figures could...

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    Why not Hubei testing? Hunan (capital Changsha) , which is immediately south of Hubei only 1016 cases vs ~ 65,0000 cases in Hubei province. 🤪 (yes, yes, I know what you meant to write, but hey no fun just simply pointing out the error).

    New low in employee engagement at Qantas? Pilots being threatened over Project Sunrise pay deal...

    I'm not going to argue on many points over the way in which this negotation is proceeding and the tactics employed. But, it is not a fact that Joyce is the highest "paid" CEO in the world. From memory the US3 all have CEO's paid (in cash, short term and long term incentives) more than Joyce...

    First time in J - Book the cook options and alcohol

    Food options can be changed up to 24 hrs before departure. I am not sure if they can be changed after webcheckin, but you can uncheck online if you want to make changes to seating or meal selection. Easy way to deal with this is not do OLCI until you leave for the airport! Of course, in fact...

    Project Sunrise - what is it going to mean for non-Sunrisers?

    There's a lot of water under the bridge for the economy between now and the launch of sunrise. Have you a crystal ball as to the demand between Sydney and London in 2022 or 2023? There is definitely a possibility that due to economic circumstances or economics of the flight itself, or...

    There’s always the option of flying someone else .........

    Dress Standards in Abu Dhabi?

    From memory, except for mosques, knee length shorts on men aren't uncommon, but short shorts - that only cover half the the thigh (when standing up) are probably not very respectful at all.

    First time in J - Book the cook options and alcohol

    Now if any of them ran a Michelin starred restaurant in a pressurised tube, 35000+ feet above sea level (and didn't sport a ponytail??) , it might well be worth considering. Meantime, I think the real experts are in- house (either in the airlines or catering firms). They exclusively do...

    First time in J - Book the cook options and alcohol

    Not necessarily. Depends on your tastes and also how the crew manages the dishes on board.

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    Don't know, I'm on the coast south of Melbourne right now :) But when I left on Friday, it's business as usual, except for not many tourists around. So non-touristy places are still quite busy, but touristy/foreign visitor places are much quieter. Lots of places (shopping centres, hotels...

    China (COVID-19) Respiratory illness - Effect on Travel

    The blocked seats (except exit row and bulkheads) are probably "pre-allocated" to people. Not assigned until checkin.

    A380 Production Sadness

    Well nor would I. Especially given the 747-800 had its first commercial flight about 4 years after the first A380 flight!
