  • Bag a Bargain Airfare by Going Foreign

    This week our members spill some money-saving secrets. Bagging a bargain is more exciting when you have an audience who appreciate your purchasing talents. Our members are a captivated audience when it comes to saving cash on airfares.

    Take for example the recent Qantas "Asia on Sale" promotion (no longer available). Before splashing your cash and booking online on the Qantas or other Australian booking sites such as, our members suggest searching for the same flights on non-Australian websites.

    Some savvy members managed to get an effective 20% discount on the identical flight by booking on the Brazilian version of Expedia! Translating these foreign websites can present a challenge but again, our member are happy to help. Other helpful sites revealed by our members include Air Asia and "Scoot".

    Re: IHG in Istanbul

    Thanks for your reply Pushka,
    I'll hoping for a PB list for April, to include the IC.
    If we do go, we'll need to get the timings and travel to the Gallipoli site all worked out.
    Just another 430 -...

    Re: Cheaper PER-MEL

    Maybe the OP can scalp the Mel to Cairns boarding pass in the lounge. :lol:

    Re: Purse stolen from Sydney T2 landside

    I would be asking to see Terminal Management who will have access to the security footage (if any in that area).
    Jetstar will only rent gates in T2 SYD.

    Re: Status Match update

    CX will probably offer a match to Silver or Gold based on history - both will give access to J OW lounges when flying on CX which probably isn't much use if you're going to drop to QF SG anyway but...

    Re: IHG in Istanbul

    Just saw your post. We stayed at the IC in July. It is located near Taksim Square. We found we felt left out of the vibe of Istanbul in staying there. The traffic can be horrendous getting to...

    Re: Lounge Access Help Desk

    Thanks. That's all I could find too. So gain Y+ in the air but lose lounge access on the ground. Oh well.

    Re: New J Seats Not Being Fitted Into A380

    Agree. I really enjoyed my upgraded SYD-DXB sector.

    I also agree that EK tends to too much bling. The gold and especially the fake walnut finish on the plastic components is not a favourite of...

    Re: Purse stolen from Sydney T2 landside

    All the airlines have security people who will have access to what your looking for, I doubt it will be highly likely they will grant access to the victim. Suggest you contact Jetstar, explain the...

    Re: Downgraded from Business Class.

    Light bulb moment, for those members here who pay the Gold AFF; a lawyer is paid a (tiny) retainer we can all use in such moments.

    I just wish an airline could be big enough to admit a stuff up,...
