    New J Sleep Service Offering

    Just wondering if anyone in here has experienced the new offering. I've seen a couple of pics on FT with some mentioning that the "Medium Haul" legs to/from Australia don't have it yet. Anyone have any experiences that they can report on as yet?

    JFK, early check in

    I'm looking at having to make my way from EWR to JFK. Plenty of time and options so no problem there. My query is can I check in for my flight 5-6 hours before departure? I'm on the 10pm flight, JFK-LHR, and wouldn't mind just crashing in the lounge for that time as the week beforehand will be...

    HSBC (non QF) Platinum Card

    Just wondering If anyone has had any experience utilising the two free lounge entries offered on the included Lounge Key Membership? This appears to be an easy way to obtain a lounge pass for a flight ex KRK and I'm hoping the LK membership is easy to use. HSBC Platinum Card

    Hi, Posting on behalf of a friend. They'd paid for JQ J Class for a SYD-HNL-SYD, the return flight was cancelled. They were notified by email with the offer of a $25 voucher. Given it was the 4th July weekend they were very fortunate to find a room for 2 extra nights in HNL. Over the...

    Lounge Nomination Fee; Possible to get it waived?

    New job and it seems Virgin is preferred locally (possible BFOD policy, not sure as yet) hence some lounge access will be handy until status obtains it. Has anyone had success with getting the lounge nomination fee waived?

    Shenzhen Visa

    Golf - Oahu - near Waikiki preferable

    Well it's finally arrived and we go (as my 5 year old says) in 3 more sleeps. Given we're staying near the Hilton in Waikiki which is pretty much within walking distance of the Ala Moana Shopping centre it's safe to say I won't be seeing my wife much as she and her sister will keep themselves...

    I'm not regarded as the snappiest of dressers but I sit here (BNE Q Club Lounge) staring at a guy that looks like a larger version of Paul Hogn from his 70's TV show. This prompted me to check the requirements and here is what I could find: Item 10.7 "Smart, casual dress standards apply at...
