    Tokyo Haneda slot - how will Virgin Operate it?

    Bankwest Qantas World MC 90k bonus, $6k spend in 3 months, $135 first year annual fee, exp 31 August 2019

    120k. I currently only have 1 other cc (the anz travel rewards one) and low expenses but obviously something i typed in it didnt like. My fault really for not doing a bunch of test runs with fake names to make sure my numbers would be appropriate.

    Bankwest Qantas World MC 90k bonus, $6k spend in 3 months, $135 first year annual fee, exp 31 August 2019

    I just applied but only got conditionally approved for the "platinum" qantas card, not the "world" one. Darn, As its means a sign up bonus of 50k qantas points instead of 90k. Of course that's if i get approved.....

    Alaska airlines mileage plan

    Hi all, from my own searching I've found the answer is 'no', but I'll ask here just in case: Can you book jetstar flights using mileage plan? I know you can book qantas but I was looking at some flights BNE to LST and jetstar fly direct whereas qantas do a stop via MEL. I'd prefer the direct.
