Just enter your flight number?or destination and you can choose the best possible spot available. Particularly handy when travelling long haul or with kids. free

PRIORITY PASS?Got a four-hour layover? Instead of forking out for WiFi and filling up on fast food, consider buying access to a lounge. With Priority Pass, you can view the amenities?on offer, which often include complimentary drinks, food and even showers, before you buy. Investing in a Priority Pass membership will get you a further discount. free
