    If any tourism board would like me to write a review of AC flights TAPC (or TATL), please contact me!!!:D
    If you want a glowing review, best to put me in Exec First as 16hrs in Econ kinda seems like torture! :p

    from the article:
    Comfort This is economy so I just feel lucky to have an aisle seat.
    and
    Tested by Linton Besser, who flew courtesy of Travel Alberta and Tourism British Columbia.

    I don't know how they do it, but the travel writers for the SMH are always going on these junkets. About every two to three weeks I see an article where they review "XYZ airline's <blah> class". The articles all follow the same structure and always have the same depth of coverage.

    kind of seems odd to refer to commercials that can not be fast forwarded through IN AUGUST??? when did this person fly? not that I am AC defender, but get your facts right. especially if you are going to be a critic.

    Australian papers always take freebies and junkets which most NAmerican papers will not any longer...well, all except Rupert Murdoch's papers...of which the Herald is one, no? Ethical standards are only slightly higher than those of the muck press in the UK.

    SMH is part of Fairfax Media which, as far as I can tell, has no affiliation with Mr. Murdoch.

    Don't worry getting the facts straight often proves difficult.....

    Lol, I wonder if they copied part of the comments from a Delta review ROFL

    It's not like Qantas has great customer service attendants either, reminds me of a long story over a seat belt.......
