    MEL - HNL via SYD (using the QF curbside First Class Check-In Lounge)

    I frequently travel from Melbourne (MEL) to Honolulu (HNL) via Sydney (SYD) with Qantas (QF). Typically, I only carry on my luggage. However, last month, I had checked baggage. Unfortunately, the Qantas International Check-In counters at Qantas' domestic Terminal 1 in Melbourne were unmanned...

    I'm flying Qatar first class to Doha then on Economy after that. I'm struggling to locate what lounge I'll have access to in Doha. Does the arrival class have any impact or only the next leg of the journey on Qatar? Platinum VA. Any help would be terrific :)

    You can now redeem Qantas points for JAL domestic First Class

    This notice was in today's Qantas Platinum newsletter: I hadn't really noticed before that you couldn't previously use Qantas points on JAL domestic routes in premium cabins. But it's also quite possible that I just never looked into it. Is this a new thing? FWIW I'm currently *only* seeing...

Looking at Sydney - Brussels, then Cairo-Sydney, I'd like to spoil ourselves by going first class at least on the final leg home from Cairo. Looking ahead to Feb next year and no...

    Lufthansa's new Allegris First class suites

    LH's seat makeover Allegris has had a few mentions on AFF in the past day or so; I got the e-mail from the yesterday and have focussed here on the new First cabin. I'm on LH in First in May on B747-800, the present config, which I think is far from the best, so I was expecting the new config to...
