Exactly! The only other trans-Tasman business class cabin that comes close to this is A380 that Emirates flies from Sydney to Christchurch.

I have done some research on this topic for myself, but by no means am I am expert. My findings were that the cover offered by…

I have used the House lounge in Sydney airport a few times before. As with any lounge, the experience is better the emptier it is. The…

@tunzafun001 I would recommend that you be very cautious about the Plaza Premium lounge in Sydney. I have heard through multiple people…

Not bad prices for direct flights. Flying Qantas though... ugh.
07/05/2024 - 08:50
That is good insight, thanks for sharing!. I am in the market and was tempted to give this a g. I'll steer clear and keep an eye out for…

It's crazy how an airline can offer a non-direct flight cheaper, or even at a similar price, than a direct flight. Yes, Hong Kong is on the…

What a shame! I got $314 to Ho Chi Minh the last time they ran return for free.

Great insight, thanks for the heads up. Out of curiosity, how did you find out?
29/04/2024 - 09:45
Yes, me too! I do enjoy a US trip but the weak dollar is extremely off-putting. Also, their tipping culture has gone too far. I understand…

Thaks for your reply, appreciate your insights. I have heard that you need to have WeChat to pay for most things. I like to use public…

"even if you do something odd if you look foreign people will understand" - Yes thank you, this is what I was hoping to hear. Obviously, I…

Great prices to New York but ouch, ~14 hour layover at nighttime. Would have to work out if hotel, taxi etc in Incheon is cheaper than a…

Am usually put off Fiji airways because of the inconvenient layover duration, but these flights seem pretty reasonable. It's not a bad way…

Hey @edfoo, did you do your own thing while there, or were you on a tour?. There is a lot of negative media about China, but I am still…

If you are seeking rentals from an airport, a location on the airport property (i.e. a pickup counter inside the terminal) is often more…

All things equal, it's always a bit of a special start of a holiday to fly with an airline of the destination country. Regardless of the…

Hawker food is the best - great recommendations. Jollibee is also top notch!, a must visit whenever in Asia.

I really really want to visit the states this year to discover places I haven't been (East Coast), but this is exactly my problem - the…

I think it's the first one - OP can you double check that the fair type is actually flexible?
05/04/2024 - 13:34
The threshold on low-cost versus full service is difficult to put a price on. I figure some local airlines have had such negative wrap in…

$279 a night for an **Ibis Styles** ???? Sheesh.
05/04/2024 - 09:05
This doesn't answer your question, but you mentioned possibly flying JAL - I would highly recommend this option (or other full-service…
05/04/2024 - 09:03
JAL is an excellent airline and the 2-4-2 seat configuration on the 777s is thoroughly worth the price premium.

A 42% increase in the excess doesn't seem insignificant to me. Along that line of thinking, I wouldn't mind a 'minor' pay increase this…

I do wonder what cost-benefit analysis went on. As a bargainer that uses a credit card for the benefit of travel insurance (amongst other…

The opposite of a bargain received in the mail today, notification of upcoming changes to ANZ Platinum and Black card complimentary…

You probably won't have issues with driving in the US if you are a competent driver here. It sometimes seems that big cities have bad…

Agree with others, avoid Turo. Once you add on insurance, it's hardly competitive and many vehicles have limits on the kms you can travel…
