    I booked QR business class flights to/from Europe for May 2020 in May this year. Seats were being released around 360ish days out, at GMT.

    Project Sunrise: A350 or 777X?

    Reuters is reporting that Boeing engineers have frozen development work on the ultra-long-range version of the 777X, which is in the running for Qantas' Project Sunrise (direct London/NYC flights) along with Airbus' A350-1000ULR. Apparently Boeing's final proposal to Qantas included a...

    There are also discounts with Singapore Airlines, Etihad, Agoda and others available which don't require an offer to be saved to a card. Check out this page on Amex's website: https://www.americanexpress.com/au/campaigns/travel/plan-your-next-adventure/all-other-cards/

    The perfect excuse to end HKG flights?

    I think they will wait to see how the VS tie-up goes. It hasn't fully kicked into gear yet.

    Question When is next anticipated double SC promotion?

    I don't think we can conclude this yet. It used to be the norm that we'd see one (or maybe two?) global DSC offers per year, then last year we had three (Feb, Aug, Oct). This year we've already had one in Feb. Let's just wait and see.

    Should I follow up e-ticket yet?

    I was concerned about an e-ticket delay last week. Tried calling and online chat - both were hopeless. Finally sent a frustrated SMS, and the ticket was manually issued straight away. SMS: 0477 QANTAS and include your full name, passengers and flight details.

    You can interact with us via SMS

    Not sure what was going on at Qantas yesterday but everything (calls, SMS, chat) was super delayed. I wanted to get a booking ticketed. Called and was told it would be done in an hour. Didn't happen. Used the chat feature in the app - ditto. Finally decided to send an SMS to the number I had...

    RewardPay Alternatives

    Yeah I'm debating whether this is a good idea. With the QF/VA transfer bonuses it drops to below 1cpp.

    Last year was Feb, then August. So perhaps soon!

    They have promised one million extra seats. Five million is the total number available (allegedly).

    Is this on TK's long-discussed-but-never-implemented Istanbul-Sydney route?
