    I have left yet, but I’m flying Thai Airways from Melbourne via bangkok. Emirates are also supposed to be good, I can definately recommend Singapore Airlines.

    Air Berlin from MIA to TXL with layover in Dusseldorf. Service was very good and efficient, food was good, and boarding the plane was easy. However, because it is a budget airline, it has very poor IFE. But I got there safe and relatively cheap so everything went well.

    In 2001 I flew Cathay Pacific – they were amazing! In 2006 I flew Lufthansa from America to England-also fantastic. On the way home I flew Singapore they beat any other airline hands down! This year I flew to America with Qantas NEVER AGAIN

    hey when we flew last year we went with royal bruni and they were fantastic, we rolled off the plane when we got to london, we stopped at bruni and dubai which was good cos it split the trip up

    Ill tell my story quickly: I booked my ticket in May, the cancelled my flight in June. They never updated my itenirary online, they never emailed me to tell me my flight was changed, and they said they called once and i didnt answer so they didnt bother to leave a message. I found out AFTER i was already in NY ( because they never bothered to update my original booking to reflect the new info). their customer service reps said “its not my problem” and refuse to do anything for me. My weekend was cut short and i WILL NEVER FLY THEM AGAIN!!! ( and i fly alot…). If you are flying to or from the US use another airline… one that cares about their customers….

    Thanks for letting me vent =)

    We have not left yet but we are travelling from Sydney to London and return with Etihad. Has anyone travelled with them before?

    I flew to NYC with Continental and we didn’t have any problems. But then again my teacher made all the arrangements.

    When I went at the start fo the year, we flew JAL from Cairns (North Queensland) to Narita, Japan…they codeshare with QANTAS, so we had a QANTAS plane for that leg. They put us up for a night in a hotel at the airport, then we flew out to London the next day – it was great. The JAL leg was superior to QANTAS (and not just because we had been upgraded). Coming back the same way, JAL have individual entertainment systems, while QANTAS only has one big screen at the front – this could be because Japan to Cairns is only 7 hours?…tho coming home the plane was empty, so we could stretch out wherever we wanted.

    Unfortunately, bloody QANTAS have pulled their flights from Cairns, so my sister and I are now flying Cathay via HK to get to Italy for Christmas – but I hear they are pretty good.

    I am going qantas via singapore unfortunally i had very short notice that i am going so the cheap flights were the same price as the qantas one and i got there heaps quicker with qantas

    we flew malaysuia airlines
    ill give u a tip its probably cheaper from perth to fly with them because they land in kuala lumpur which is nice and close to perth (5 hr flight) and u can stay overnight in the 5 star airport hotel for like ninety bucks then catch ure plane to london the next morning. they are excellent to fly with
    have fun
