d15.in.oz said:My other great judging tip for quality premium airline staff, is, when they come round and ask you if you would like another drink, and your only answer is “yes”, seeing if they have to ask or confirm what you are drinking, and if not, checking that what turns up is what you wanted.
Well they would be wrong 100% of the time with me. But their saving grace is that I don't travel domestic J.oz_mark said:From my observation on domestic J, if they offered everyone in J a Gin and Tonic they would be right 75% of the time.

Domestically, You can have the G&T down the back but it will cost you $6 or $7.straitman said:JohnK,
I'm happy to have your share of the G & T. Oops, I normally don't travel domestic 'J' either :!:
Getting way off topic now but it is only small price to pay for the right drink. If I remember correctly a few years back in the Orchard Rd nightclubs a glass of beer was ~S$10-12 whereas a jug, probably 4-5 glasses, was ~S$35. Have prices increased much in that time?Evan said:Try getting a beer or drink in Singapore !
HI Parkview is probably a better hotel than HI Atrium but also costs ~S$70 more per night. I am not planning on being in the room for too long so even if return taxi to Orchard Rd costs S$20 then I have saved S$50.Evan said:I prefer holiday in parkview just behind orchard road myself, from the atrium and you dislike the heat a few dollars in a taxi. If you just flag one down from hotel lobby about $4-8 depending on peak hour or not. No more than $10 SG.
Hang out at Orchard Towers. Have a steak at 3 Monkeys restaurant downstairs, hope this is still around otherwise the Irish pub around the corner, and then slowly make my way up to the top floor and Top Ten nightclub.Evan said:Why orchard road, shopping or night life ? or you just want to hang out at orchard towers
lucinda said:Well I didn't get any reply from Jetstar after they cancelled one of my business class flights, been waiting over 10 weeks, so it looks like I'm an economy pass. to B. kok next week. Is it bad??? Should I buy a few drinks tip back the chair and just go to sleep.??
Good job I'm business class with British Air on my return.
lucinda said:I hate being down the back . I have an aisle seat first row econ, the only 4 rowers at this stage are way down. What do you recommend?
Yeah the restaurant could also go by the name of Monkeys Cafe and it is at the back of the mall.Evan said:Not sure about the steak place, but 'Harry's' bar is still just behind the place.
Upstairs :shock: are you sure ?
The international music bar on the 1st/2nd floor is interesting.
We can catch up if you have free some time on your hands. I will be there late on July 15 after flying in on QF31 and should be there again July 26 a little earlier flying back from BKK on Thai.Evan said:I will be in town neary all next month so if you want to catch up just send me a PM.
Never tried it. As long as the food is not too spicy, hot.Evan said:For food do you like the Brazilian BBQ places like at Chijmes ? Set price for all you can eat as well.
LOL!serfty said:I guess this will all be a lot more relevant when JQi flys to SIN.
... perhaps it should be in the Tiger Airways AUD499 MEL-SIN return thread.
