Each aircraft cabin can be controlled separately, so F could have a different temperature than WT+, as an example.

Having been on the receiving end of these internet "weirdos", I'm against disclosing which hotels we stay in. Trust me, it really isn't nice to try to relax somewhere when you have a customer (or...

It's a big no-no to sleep on the floor. Several reasons: Turbulence, the oxygen level is far lower down at floor level, you could get stepped/stood on, and so on. I'm quite shocked that the crew...

Last long haul I did, we had apple & blackberry crumble with custard. The one I find really hard to resist is the banoffee pie. Luckily, I haven't seen that for a while :)
