JetBlue has given the Economy Class cabin in its Airbus A320 aircraft a makeover and the first aircraft fitted with the new cabin is now in service.

A Look Inside The New Qantas Business Class Lounge In Brisbane

If there is one thing that I like most about Qantas it's that it can do airport lounges very well when it puts it's mind to it. The First Class lounge in Sydney is fantastic, the Qantas First Class lounge at LAX is my favorite lounge in the US and I can't wait for the new Qantas lounge to open at London Heathrow Terminal 3 next year. All this is why I was particularly interested to see what Qantas would be offering at its new Brisbane International Lounge which opened its doors yesterday.

Etihad will reduce it's daily service between Abu Dhabi and San Francisco to just 3 flights per week and this may go some way to expelling where the airline is getting the aircraft to operate the extra flights to Dallas/Ft Worth.
