It isn't just the security experience, awful though that is. I got shouted at in a very long security queue in T3 because I was reading Twitter on my phone. Not allowed, and my attempt to ask why...

Agreed, this is what EK do on the early morning flights out of DXB to the UK. My sense is it works really well - I have a light snack in the lounge, and then a little on board. The lunch before...

I am not a fan of the QF seat on the A380. As noted above getting past the person in the aisle is a trial, and it lacks privacy. The Club World seat is far better. I also think the QF catering is...

Indeed, and my experience is that you are far more likely to get secondary screening at Manchester that at any other UK airport, and that when you do the wait can be long.

Realsitic yes - but surely the standard shown here in the video falls below that? The salad is simply embarrassing and the main looks dreadful and is presented very poorly. Whilst a 5 course Michelin...

I have done UK-NZ many times, and indeed am currently in Wellington.

In my experience the best is LHR-HKG on the A380 (or with CX) and then HKG onwards with CX. Ideally with a night in HKG.

Security at Manchester is almost bizarrely awful. Huge queues, dreadful staff and a bag search rate that often seems to be one in three.
