    Vinomofo Wine Deals

    So sad to miss out on this 😢 Haven’t bought from VM for a while but would have pounced! Drinking a bottle of the 12 Shiraz Viognier as I type... so good! Anyone about in Sydney want to swap for a case of 13 Amelia Park?

    Qatar Airways status match to Virgin Australia

    Hi all. Thanks for the tip off, now Oneworld Sapphire. Don’t expect to be flying much over the next year, apart from domestic and Pacific. A few questions if anyone can assist? Does Sapphire give you Qantas Club lounge access if flying Jetstar? If flying Qantas Classic Reward flight? Domestic...

    Virgin getting very HEAVY re completed credit card refunds. Sad to see.

    Is it any government action? Or Australian government action?

    I thought they were all on Job Keeper? so... we pay twice?

    Beware Qatar [COVID-19] refund policy

    May I ask... were these return flights from Australia? I thought if the outwards flight from AU was cancelled, then the return flight was automatically cancelled and was no longer a valid ticket.

    Flight Centre refunds for cancelled flights

    I'd check directly with the hotels... I wouldn't trust FC.

    Beware Qatar [COVID-19] refund policy

    May I ask a question? I've having a great deal of difficulty getting a refund for my Etihad flights, Sydney to London and Dublin to Sydney, via Abu Dhabi (stopover) both ways. Etihad cancelled my flights on 3 April, my first flight was due to depart 14 April. Can I claim under EC 261/2004? and...

    Flight Centre refunds for cancelled flights

    It was clearly never meant to apply to involuntary cancellations originally. Aunt Betty and Flight Centre have only recently 'clarified' the T&C to say the fee applies to both. It is being challenged with a number of consumer bodies and I would be surprised if they get away with it.

    Flight Centre refunds for cancelled flights

    When I checked Aunt Betty’s website today there was a link to a Google form you could submit that includes the option of requesting a refund, possibly due to change in policy by some airlines eg Singapore Airlines. Things are changing, a bit of consumer pushback?

    Flight Centre refunds for cancelled flights

    Just checked Etihad’s Covid-19 policy page and they are now offering refunds for ‘US UK and EU originated tickets’! What happened to our consumer rights??? This in addition to Singapore Airlines now offering refunds to all.

    Flight Centre refunds for cancelled flights

    The only reason I know my flights with Etihad were cancelled is because Etihad emailed me. I've heard nothing from Aunt Betty. I also didn't know what the fare rules for my flights are because Aunt Betty neglected to pass this on as well. No way to contact them except a phone queue for over a...

    Flight Centre refunds for cancelled flights

    Got my chargeback request submitted on the second attempt. The rationale for refusing is that Australian businesses can't override Australian government directives or regulations. Not applicable as far as I can see. There was nothing to stop Etihad running their flights from the AU government.
