    On short-haul international flights in business class, what are the requirements for accessing the inflight entertainment system? Is it still only provided through the Virgin Entertainment app on your own device for which you need to use your own headset?

    Virgin Entertainment available on Alliance operated flights

    Haven’t seen anyone else comment. Was on an Alliance operated F100 for VA and they announced the VA entertainment was available via WiFi. Unsure how many aircraft have it, but definitely trying to keep the experience similar.

    Entertainment in overseas lounges

    Hi all. I fly between MEL and LAX fairly frequently and while trying to watch Warner get his double century I was told by the staff in the First Lounge (LAX) that they cant access the cricket.

    Why keep obsolete IFE boxes?

    On another QF 737 again the plane had been upgraded to Qantas entertainment but the old IFE boxes were still bolted on. The same seem to apply to their 330's with iPad's. Why would they still keep them as the seat back screens are long gone? Instead, the few extra centimetres of space for your...
