  1. Just recounting our experiences in the hope it helps others We have been organising our flights for our relocation in November. It's been a bit awkward because the company are doing the booking and paying, so we've had a bit of to and fro in trying to get the best result that means we can take a decent amount of luggage to tide us over until our stuff arrives We couldn't book the "migrant fares" that some airlines offer, nor the additional migrant baggage allowances, because the booking wasn't being made from the UK nor by a migrant, but by the company from Australia. I checked and confirmed this with the airlines and they wouldn't budge However, on research we found that of the common direct carriers the following applies a) Emirates have the best standard allowance in economy of 30Kg b) BA, Qantas, Virgin allow 23 Kg c) Most of the Far Eastern airlines (I checked CP, Singapore, Malay) only allow 20Kg More importantly, BA and Virgin were *vastly* cheaper for a pre-booked additional bag. They will both let you have one extra bag (so a further 23Kg) for £33-34 per person for the whole bag, if you book online All other airlines that I researched - including Qantas - wanted somewhere between £500 and £700 for the same amount of additional baggage The BA/Virgin additional baggage charges are a bit of a steal to be honest. For the three of us we've booked an extra bag each, so now have up to 46Kg each (ie 2 big bags, which is plenty even for our son's toys) for the total of only about £100 for all 3 of us If you are struggling with balancing the luggage equation and trying to work out your flights, it's worth bearing in mind HTH
  2. Is someone here widely travelled enough to compare these three airlines? I am specially interested in reviews from single, adult travellers who don't have to mind kids. Even if you haven't travelled all three, feel free to chip in with whatever you have. I'll try to consolidate all the reviews so we have a clearer picture.

    Tiger Airways Ban Lifted

    Although they are limited to 18 flights this month. We were hoping they would come back because they offer deals to Melbourne from $1 to $99 the problem is I think they are taking cairns off their flight path which seems silly as every single flight use to be booked out

    Tiger Airways Grounded

    We have flown with them numerous times and have been happy with the service. This has just been announced.:chatterbox: The aviation regulator says it has lost confidence in Tiger Airways' ability to manage its safety after a series of events, culminating in the grounding of the airline's Australian flights. All Tiger Airways Australia's domestic flights were today suspended for a week, until July 9. It's the first time the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) has grounded an entire airline. Advertisement: Story continues below Holiday blues: Tiger's Australian wing has taken a beating. Tiger's Australian wing has been grounded by CASA while a safety probe continues. Photo: Craig Abraham CASA said it took the action because it believed permitting the airline to continue to fly posed a serious and imminent risk to air safety. CASA spokesman Peter Gibson said the action was not taken lightly and was the culmination of a number of events this year. "All on top of each other, (they) add up to a position where the Civil Aviation Safety Authority has lost confidence in Tiger's ability to manage safety appropriately," Mr Gibson said. "The last thing CASA wants to do is put airlines on the ground and inconvenience the travelling public but safety has to come first." CASA had issued Tiger with a show cause notice in March, centred on aircraft maintenance, pilot proficiency and the competency of the airline's overall safety management system. The authority then imposed a number of conditions on Tiger's air operator's certificate, requiring actions to improve pilot proficiency and training and checking processes as well as changes to fatigue management. It also required improvements to maintenance control and ongoing airworthiness systems and ensuring appropriately qualified people fill management and operational positions. Since then pilots have twice flown too low into Melbourne airports: an Airbus A320 on approach into Melbourne Airport on June 7 and another, also an A320, into Avalon airport late on Thursday night. "It's not so much the mistakes in themselves, the individual mistakes of the pilots, it's the pattern you're seeing of safety issues arising over and over again within the airline," Mr Gibson said. Tiger said it continues to cooperate fully with the industry regulator and safety underpins its operations at all times. CASA has to decide in the next week whether it will go to the Federal Court to seek an extension of the grounding. Mr Gibson said Tiger can put a case for getting back in the air to the regulator. "This is a period for essentially natural justice for Tiger to be able to put their side to us and for us to consider that, and if not go to the court and let the court decide," Mr Gibson said. Mr Gibson said CASA regretted that the action coincided with the start of school holidays in NSW and Victoria. The suspension came into effect at 11pm yesterday and is effective for five working days, meaning at this stage it runs until Saturday, July 9. It's the first time CASA has grounded an entire fleet. It grounded Ansett's 767 fleet of 10 aircraft in April 2001 and seven of the jets in December 2000. Ansett was Australia's second largest airline when it was placed in voluntary administration the day after the September 11 terrorist attacks in the US in 2001. In a statement on its website, Tiger said it was "doing all it can to minimise passenger disruption" for passengers. The airline advised passengers with bookings not to travel to airports and said passengers would be offered a full refund or credit for deferred travel. "The airline apologises for any inconvenience to its passengers," the statement said. "Tiger Airways is committed to resolving the issue, assisting CASA and to resuming services as soon as possible."

  7. Hi everyone I have seen a number of threads on here saying how good Singapore are as an airline when flying from UK to Oz. I am due to be flying out at beginning of March, potentially on my own with a 5 year old as OH is going out a couple of days beforehand. One of my concerns is keeping my daughter occupied and there being enough for her to do onboard without relying on me 100% of the time. Looking at the different airline websites, Virgin seems to offer the best range of movies, additional backpacks for kids filled with goodies, childrens menu etc. Can anyone comment on what Virgin is like when travelling with children versus Singapore airlines? I have flown Virgin before but that was on my honeymoon and I didnt have a child to think about then! Any help/advice would be appreciated. Cara

    Qatar Airways

    Hello, has anyone flew Qatar? Last time (a few years ago) I travelled to Oz with Emirates and now they do not have any seats available until mid February so I bought the tickets (still return tickets) with Qatar. I read somewhere that they are similar to Emirates but I would like to hear some personal experiences. I am travelling next week.
  9. Hi can anyone tell me if the BA ticket office is still in Brisbane? I found an address online but no email contact. I'm tryin to find out if it's run by BA staff or not. It's a long shot, but Does anyone know anybody who works there?
  10. Hi, Just wondering if anyone has flown Dublin to Sydney with Etihad Airways. We will be travelling with a one year old. How are Etihad aircraft for space, leg room etc. They use Airbus A332 (going by their website). The advantage of not travelling through London is that there is only one stop but we would have more options for airlines going through UK. Anyone out their who has used Etihad from Dublin? Cheers, downunder
  11. Its been a bit of a milestone this weekend. Ive booked my flight and sent my resignation and house notice letters off. Anyway.... my flight is with Thai Airways, basically it was cheap and the only flight at the time with a short stop at Bangkok. Have many used Thai Airwyas on here and how were they?
  12. Hi all, I am going back home for a trip and we are leaving Sydney with Eithad Airlines and travelling through Abu Dhabi airport on the way to London. I am going to be travelling with my young son (13 months old) he can not walk yet and is TOO HEAVY (13kg) for me to carry during the transfer period. Does anyone have any experience flying with these guys? Did you manage to get pushchair onto plane ( i have a reasonably small umbrella pushchair)? Did anyone gain access to a stroller at the Abu Dhabi airport? Were the staff nice? I'm very nervous (understandably) I don't even know how i'm supposed to go to the toilet?? Any experience Good or Bad (I can prepare if it's bad) would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Donna. Ps i have no idea how to change my ticker at the bottem here. I've been in Sydney for 2 years and now have a baby too. It's slightly outdated!
  13. Hi all I am looking to fly back for my best friends wedding in June (Syd - LHR) and have been trying to look at flights without my heart palpatations starting! Anyway have found a good deal with China airways - has anyone flown with them? Every time i have flown i have always come with Singapore or Emirates - although once with BA and never again! So I know i have been spoilt! I just wondered if there is a reason they are so much cheaper? Does the plane have only one wing? Do they serve food? Etcetc All advice gratefully received! Thanks Nat x
