thank you for the response. Another quick question. My wife has Avios too. Can we combine them if the seats become available?

you have been very helpful

I'm flying in Business with QR next week and thinking of going with only hand luggage. Website says that the carry-on luggage must not exceed 50 37 25 cm. My bag is 55 x 40 x 22 cm. Will this be a problem?

EDIT: Does anyone know if the QR check-in at ARN are manned, or are just online check-in and bag drop possible?

I have travelled with BA standard size hand carry 56 X 35 X 23 and never had any questions asked. In business my suggestion is that you won't have an issue with the size but they have been known to occasionally weigh hand carry at some check-ins and try to enforce the rather silly low had carry weight. In J you are very unlikely to have a problem, but you obviously know there is a little risk involved.

As for ARN I have not been there recently but as airlines are still dealing with the unravelling of international immigration and health regulations generally most self-check in services if they did exist are still suspended hence the generally chaotic scenes in check in halls in many airports, as there is a manual document check inforced. As far as I recall there never was a dedicated self check in, so I would be suspicious that you could find one now. Whilst you may be able to go through the motions of online check in most circumstances it confirms your intent to check in but does not issue the boarding pass and you still need to present to a check in counter.

Gold is sent to the new silver lounge. Only platinum in Y gets the Al Mourjan.

Thanks, is this a different lounge to the business class lounge from before? If so, do you know has there been any reviews or pictures posted here?

I have been there, it is certainly nicer than the old business class lounge, with apron views and natural lights. Did not take any pictures though. Did not spend too much time there, really just stopped by to see it on my way from the Al Mourjan to the gate a short while after it opened..

Great, thanks! I always hated the old business lounge, so will check this out later this week.

If you cancel an award ticket, do the points go immediately back into the account?

WIth the SAS strike going on, my ticket might get cancelled.. im thinking of bookin a one way ticket with another airline so im wondering if my entire ticket will be cancelled if i dont show up on my first flight? Like this is my trip EVE-OSLO < first flight which im sure 90% is gonna get cancelled so im booking a new ticket with another airline to get me to OSLO so does that mean my OSLO-DOHA and DOHA-NAIROBI will get cancelled?

I just checked in online and downloaded and printed boarding passes. But there isn't any information printed on the boarding passes about lounge access? IIRC it use to be? Booking class I. ARN-DOH-BKK. Should I be worried?

I never had anything about lounge access on my BPs?
