IME, no they don't. Their responsibility is to get the plane off on schedule. Adding time to find and research the FF's preferred seating has the potential to further delay the flight. In the...

Was this way for me as of June 2014, the last time I flew VA LAX-SYD. IIRC, I also received my lounge invitation during check in at T3 and then just walked over to TBIT - a 3-5 min walk as T3 in...

Update #2

The TA's seat map was correct. Business class is configured as 2 mini-cabins, rows 6-8 and 9-11. Coach does start at row 21. Looks like the planes may have undergone a reconfiguration and the GA...

OP - I just did this flight last week and recommend seats 2AC over 1HK. Seats 1HK are closer to the galley and lav and thus more prone to noise and light.
Again, another 1+ for VA over DL on this...

I was also informed the NZ lounge was a departure lounge, but the dragon insisted that access was strictly limited to the SYD-LAX flight when flying VA metal and could not be accessed when transiting...

Can't say for sure. The VA lounge is over in the domestic terminal and I was over in the international terminal. The two terminals are not connected airside.

Our flights are non-stop SYD-DPS-SYD. Both the Garuda CSA and our TA confirmed that this is an A330-200, hence my concern about the seat assignments. Perhaps, GA is substituting a 77W for this...

update

So...according to the seatmap that the corparate travel agent can see, F is rows 1-5, C/J is rows 6-11 and Y starts at row 21 and continues into the 40s on the A330-200. None of this matches the GA...

Agent said business continued from row 6 through row 10 on the A330-200, but website seat map most certainly does not support this claim. Business class rows on the A330-300 don't go higher than 7,...

Shower facilites at LHR T4?

Flying DL ATL-LHR on a quick business trip. Before heading into the city, I would like to get a shower, etc. What are my airside options at terminal 4? I have a AmEx Plat card and PP for access.

+1. Did the same thing for my niece who will accompany us on DL and VA flights. Took all of 1 minute.
Sounds like you got wrong information from the agent.

I'm not entirely sure, but I think the spg points have to be transferred in 5k allotments. I put a value of 2.2 cents/spg point. So, at 5k x 0.022 = $110 it's cheaper to transfer to spg points...

DCC?

What does the abbreviation DCC stand for?
Going to Australia soon too and had planned on using a personal Amex that does not impose foreign transaction fees.
