    Comfy dress vs Acceptable dress

    So I’ve got a not-for-work trip to the UK in a couple of months, and I’m not the frequent traveller in the family; my wife is. Thing is, she can get away with wearing the right type of trackie-dacks & she doesn’t look like a slob, whereas if I try the same I look either like a character from...

    Feet on bulkheads, chewy on seat better!

    On todays flight BKK to DOH. I was wondering if QR actually feed their staff as this could have been reserve rations? On landing I was just imaging how the staff member who placed it there didn't think it was going to be spotted when they left their seat!
