    QLD border declaration

    Have found many hotels are offering some great deals when booking direct - much better than the general discount travel booking websites and almost all are flexible Pay on Arrival. Win win for both parties really in the current climate.

    For any Hyatt Globalists in Australia - sad to say Hyatt Canberra has decided to close its Ambassador (Club) Lounge permanently. They are currently offering a 10% discount on F&B instead.

    How long until you get to LTP? (Or are you already there ^_~)

    SQ Premium Economy Food & Service

    Just returned from a SQ PE experience - overall - great on the A380 day time flight from SYD - excellent service with senior cabin crew who seem to only look after PE. Food was surprisingly good. Even had a convenient toilet. Nicolas Feuillatte generously served and even addressed by name...

    SLH 'Partnership'

    Looking forward to this - certainly places Hyatt in the upper echelon range compared to Hilton and IHG- devil will be in the details but if they treat Globalists well -I’m in !

    From Zero to QF Platinum Flying Economy

    I managed 4 years of P1 of mainly Domestic and TT economy - (along with collateral VA Plat) - 160-200 flights a year, 250+ nights in hotels ... but many of these were flexible Y and some creative flight paths at times to maintain. Decided to just go back to vanilla WP before it would have long...

    Air New Zealand ends alliance with Virgin Australia [goes with Qantas]

    Same with me - the only real reason I have persisted with VA status was because I fly to regional NZ regularly... hmmm
