At the end of a great stay in Port Douglas, our next stop was Canberra to see friends. You can’t fly direct so we were always going to have to stop somewhere. A quick search on Google Flights showed our Qantas options (because we wanted to use Avios) were between a change in Melbourne, Sydney… Read More Review: Cairns to Canberra on Qantas Business Class
One of the things about an airport lounge for a particular carrier is that it evokes a sense of who they are and what they are about. It is no surprise that they use common themes to make you feel a certain way. Cathay use the same warm colours and soft furnishings in The Pier… Read More Lounge Review: All of the Qantas Business Lounges

A week or so ago was no exception, with a particularly cold spell hitting London leading to long delays… Read More Flying BA this Christmas? It is meant to be almost but not quite entirely unlike BA!
We arrived into Miami about 30 minutes ahead of the published schedule which was good because the connection time was on the short side of comfortable. Whilst I was confident that American would look after us in the case of a miss connect, and they would not have sold me the ticket if it did… Read More Mamma MIA – what a connection!
