    Flew Etihad business, what is this metal plate for?

    Flew Etihad business. They gave me this plate of metal that was cold with the bread, butter, olive/balsamic oil mix before the first course arrives. I had no idea what to do with it. I asked a crew member. She said "it's just there for anything." I'm not satisfied by this answer, unless it's...

    Qatar or Emirates as QFF for Sydney - Europe Business Class?

    Hi Brains Trust. Choosing between Qatar and Emirates (booked as QF flight number) for business class to Europe this December/January (into FCO, out from BCN). Price is effectively the same for both. Qatar is not using the Q Suites as it's on the A380, so it's their standard Business Class...

    Business Class Award to Singapore using VA

    I was looking to book a business class ticket to SIN using my UA miles when I noticed that going via DPS was 15,000 miles less than direct (40,000 vs 55,000). So I booked SYD-DPS (VA) + DPS-SIN (SQ 789), with an overnight stopover. I wasn't in a great hurry to get to SIN, and I thought it would...

    Operating hours for MEL Intl Business Lounge

    Has anyone been through MEL lately and can confirm the operating hours for the intl business lounge? The website lists flights that it serves and based on that it would be closed between about 3 and 5pm (so missing the two DPS flights and the afternoon AKL). Seems a bit odd to close when there...

    Booking Mel to JFK business saver reward with stopover manually

    Hi friends, TLDR: I'm looking at the best way to spend my points, my wife and I would like to go away somewhere and we have a trip planned to NY next year for my 30th birthday. Could I book an OW Melbourn to JFK with the stopover for 145k if I call SQ up directly? I just need to be in NYC by...

    BYO Eye Mask and Ear Plugs in SQ Business ?

    Recently flew FCO-SIN-MEL with SQ in J and was more than a little disappointed not to be offered an amenity kit of any description - especially as the first sector was 12 hours overnight. Retrospectively, I've read the Penhaligon’s amenity kit is 'on request' and fair enough if they're looking...

    Is it even possible to get classic awards in business internationally anymore?

    I'm gold ff so should be able to see flights out to 353 days. I've just been looking for ex Adelaide to many destinations and there is nothing in premium cabins. Do you just have to be superfast the moment it opens? Has Covid reduced capacity? I remember previously there was a fair bit on code...

    On SC Earn on MH Business?

    Hi All, This must have been observed/discussed before, but am I right in understanding that I will not earn any SC flying Business Class with Malaysian Airlines MEL-KUL? SC Earn is only available on Y fares? Seems odd for a Oneworld Member....

    Qantas changed my classic reward seat from business to economy

    Hi all, Not even sure where to start here, I’m still shocked and upset myself! I’m heading to London for my nans memorial later this year, the memorial date was changed to slightly before my original business class classic reward QF1 ticket was due to fly out, so I found another available...
