Travel News: United Airlines offer Thanksgiving Fares starting from $979 on Return USA flights

Thanksgiving may be an American tradition, but why can't we celebrate too? United Airlines have today "thanked" their Aussie travellers by announcing special discount airfares as part of a one-off Thanksgiving sale.

Flight Review: Tigerair (Gold Coast-Melbourne)

Tigerair have long been known in Australia for being the cheaper alternative to other major domestic carriers. While some choose to see that is evidence of their being cut-rate in all aspects of their business, Tigerair is more determined than ever to turn the naysayers around. With a fresh new look, a shiny new terminal in Melbourne and a new, stronger approach to customer service, they’re out to show everyone they’re a force to be reckoned with.

Travel News: Tigerair announce massive changes to everything from customer service to uniforms

Budget airline Tigerair have made some pretty big changes this week, with an overhaul which brings in new uniforms, new aircraft, new customer innovations, and a new system, all given significant makeovers.

Flight Review: Air Canada - Flying Business Class from Vancouver to Sydney (AC33)

When boarding a long haul flight, there are few greater moments of jealously one experiences than seeing someone in business class enjoying a glass of champagne on a seat that you know lies flat and ensures no one is going to be climbing over you for the entire duration of the flight. Well, last month I was lucky enough to get an upgrade on one of the world's longest routes, from Vancouver (Canada) to Sydney, and experience the luxury for myself. So, has that jealously been warranted? Let's find out:

United Airlines to replace all flights to and from Australia with their 787-9 Dreamliner fleet

In what is pretty major news for Australian travellers, US carrier United Airlines have announced that their fleet of 777-200s - currently utilised for the long haul flight over the Pacific, connecting the East Coast of Australia to the West Coast of the USA - will next year be replaced exclusively with their 787-9 aircraft.

Flight Review: Norwegian Airlines (New York JFK to London Gatwick) DY7016 - Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner

Earlier in the year, as we flew from New York City's JFK to London's Gatwick to make it to The Great Escape, AU Abroad's Larry Heath tried out the service of Norwegian Airlines for the first time. It also marked his first flight on the new Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner. A budget airline along the lines of Jetstar, this route is often the cheapest way to get from the US to the UK. The only catch is that it's a red eye... let's see how Larry fared in this week's flight review:

Flight Review: Tigerair - Sydney to Coolangatta (TT604)

Coolangatta airport is the main stop if you want to get up to Gold Coast or surrounds, with Byron Bay and Brisbane only a relatively short shuttle ride away. As such, this route is one of the most important and frequented in Australia with so much happening in Queensland year-round. From music festivals to special events, most Australians have made the wise move towards budget airlines, an increasingly crucial service seeing as these aforementioned events really do require your time, attention, and most of all, money. Saving our cash for a series of events in on the Gold Coast, we recently hopped on Tigerair and bring you a profile of the flight up there on their snug A320.

United Airlines offering $1099 return flights to LAX from Sydney in a flash sale this weekend

On the off chance you missed Virgin Australia's happy hour deal last night, which saw discounted USA flights for February 2016, United Airlines are giving you the weekend to get your hands on a discounted fare that will take you to the USA through three departure periods, for $1099 round trip* (economy booking class only).

Flight Review: Porter Airlines - Toronto City Airport to Newark, New Jersey / New York (PD147)

Getting in and out of Toronto's Pearson International Airport can be a bit of a pain. Though a new express train service installed for the Pan Am Games in June has made the process of getting in and out a slightly less tiresome affair, it remains an expensive one. Luckily, for some routes, another airport lays within literal walking distance of the centre of the city. The Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport only serves two airlines - for now - Porter Airlines and Air Canada. One of its most popular routes, flying direct to New York's Newark Airport with Porter Airlines, is what Larry Heath recently tried out:
