Travel Qantas A380 superjumbo to Los Angeles flies almost empty

Qantas superjumbo with 484 seats takes off for LA with just 60 passengers on board.

Maybe twice.See: Galley truths: Five secrets about airline food revealedWe landed on time in LA and it was back to reality.

Travel Famous flyer: Author Marian Keyes

MY BEST HOLIDAY was two years ago when I went on a cruise to Antarctica. Once you cross over, you'll have a much more rewarding time.MY WORST EXPERIENCE ON HOLIDAY is, well, I don't like being negative about anything . In fact, they're imperative.THE INGREDIENTS FOR A PERFECT HOLIDAY INCLUDE having an enquiring mind. I felt like nobody smiled at me once for the entire time I was there.MY BIGGEST PACKING MISTAKE is always taking too much stuff.

Travel Economy class travellers reaping the benefits of fierce airline competition

In a refreshing change from the emphasis on Business Class passengers, airlines like Qantas, Emirates, Cathay Pacific, Air New Zealand, Virgin Australia and Qatar Airways are going to great lengths to keep the people in the “cheap” seats happy.It comes as budget airlines continue to expand their share of the international market out of Australia.In January, low cost carriers including AirAsia X, Jetstar, Scoot and Cebu Pacific Air, accounted for 18.1 per cent of international passenger traffic .

Travel The expats who are big fish overseas, small fry at home

People treat you like you're something different.Some travellers are uncomfortable with that. Nothing wrong with that.But then you see them in this new environment, and something different is going on. They're in their 20s, 30s and 40s, living it large in Asia, in places like Hong Kong and Beijing, Bangkok and Saigon, or in Africa, or South America, or anywhere exciting and different.These guys don't look like they would have been particularly popular or remarkable back home.
