Yeah the "we need a month to review" is B.S. They are not doing any further review. They are just sitting on passports to cause maximum inconvenience.

I've been pinged for excess baggage by QANTAS whilst I was OWE with CX. I had to go to the desk to demand a refund. QANTAS ground staff don't seem to have a clue and neither do QANTAS's systems.

New IFE

Experienced SQ's new IFE in J (1-2-1 772ER retrofit) on MEL>SIN & SIN/IST last month. Anybody else battled with its clunky (and non-touchscreen) UI? I thought it was terrible.
