    MEL-USM price drop thoughts

    It's the flight from *wherever* to USM that's the expensive part... so whilst getting to KL, BKK, or SIN is relatively inexpensive the flight to USM adds lots of $$ and then the hassle of non-airline organised connecting flights or stayovers. Saw a price of $989 on Tues so was tempting but...

    MEL-USM price drop thoughts

    I had a look at a variety of options but found the connecting flights of those other than BKK were close and likely meant an overnight stay. Would save a couple hundred dollars each but didn't think worth the hassle. Getting to BKK was most convenient with Jet* so this may be my option with...

    MEL-USM price drop thoughts

    As of yesterday I could see 11/7/2014 to 18/7/2014 MEL-USM flights with MH for around $1,350. Today they jumped to around $1,600. Can I ask from members experience the chance of the price coming back down, or, anyway to get this lower cost fare now? Thanks in advance.

    Citibank Qantas Rewards Program going to $2 = 1 point

    Has anyone actually enquired to see if this is legal for Citibank to do this? No other card (that I have previously used at least, nor many that I have recently investigated) did I have to pay IN ADDITION to accrue for QFF points yet here I pay $49 for Citi and then have them change the...

    Citibank Plat VISA 60 K , May 31

    I too just now confirmed by phone... they told me I was enrolled on the QFF rewards as at 15 July (which is correct date that I called to Opt-In) and the lady confirmed my QFF number. Usual story that she would send the rewards login problem to her manager to escalate. We shall see how it...

    Citibank Plat VISA 60 K , May 31

    WOW! Outage for a week, so who knows when it'll be back on line... That's crazy! I need to cancel another card so as to credit their annual card fee, and I need to pay bills!!! What to do?? I agree with Cove that I need to confirm my status.... do you think if I call the Citi Service Centre...

    Citibank Plat VISA 60 K , May 31

    I'm going through the steps to ensure my 60K points are credited to my QFF but when I select "Search Rewards" to see if I'm enrolled in QFF programme the site tells me: "We are unable to process your request. Please contact Citi Card Customer Care." I called Citibank and they did say they were...

    Citibank Plat VISA 60 K , May 31

    It's one OR the other.... 1.25 points for each dollar spend (domestic) and 3 points for each dollar spent internationally OR 1 QFF point for each dollar spend By default you are on the first option unless you OPT-IN to Citi Qantas Rewards programme and pay an additional $49. Once you OPT-IN...

    Citibank Plat VISA 60 K , May 31

    Isn't the 50K points also mean $250 for the card + $49 for QFF opt in? The reason I opted for the 60K points is the $125 offer as well. Here's hoping all goes through to my QFF if I do everything in the correct order.

    Travel Insurance that covers for airlines changing schedules?

    I don't think that's accurate.... In the PDS you link 1.2 WE WILL NOT PAY f] Delays or rescheduling by a bus line, airline, shipping line or rail authority. h] The mechanical breakdown of any means of transport.
