    I am recently retired so am planning some domestic trips using only carry on luggage. Jetstar specifies on its website that max carry on sizes are 56x36x23cm. A non-Jetstar source quotes a max size of 115cm (adding all bag dimensions together), but I can't find any reference to this on the...

    Price difference booking Jetstar flights on Qantas website

    Jetstar Flights Departing T3 Sydney Airport

    Not sure if its a system glitch - flying JQ from Syd to OOL - booked via the QF website ... just had a notification that my flight had changed (unfortunately not to QF) ... appears that the new JQ flight is departing T3. I thought all JQ domestic had shifted across to T2 at SYD?

    Tigerair farewell email

    With so many months since Tigerair stopped flying, I'd completely forgotten that I was subscribed to the Tigerair email list. But tonight I received a final "Tigermail". It wasn't promoting any cheap flights - those days are long gone - but rather a poignant "thank you and farewell".
