    Website errors becoming more common?

    Had the same problems earlier this week. Took about 4 attempts before it worked. Not doing seat selection during the booking seemed to help.

    re: "oneworld" award (140K/280K/420K) Planning - The Definitive Thread I suspect you would need to join the QR scheme (of which I am not a member) to search for award availability.

    Qantas DHC-8-200s

    There was one subbed on CBR-SYD a couple of months ago. My travel companion asked on boarding 'Where is the rest of the plane?'

    777-200 vs 777-300 (in J)

    The refurbished 200 and 300 series have the angled flat regional product in a 2-2-2 configuration. The 200ERs are being refurbished with the (now superseded) long haul product in a 1-2-1 configuration. Go for 1-2-1 if you can.

    Crumpler and Tumi on sale

    The current 'frenzy' sales have David Jones offerring 20% off some items, including Crumpler bags. Crumpler is not often on sale, and I picked up a Dry Red 3 roll-on for $200 delivered. Westfield is also offerring 20% off Tumi products.

    Anti semitism in Dubai

    Jews are not banned from Dubai or the rest of the UAE. Trying to enter with an Israeli passport is another matter.

    Not all EK destinations in Africa have QF flight numbers.

    For QF to put its code on an EK flight to a particular country, Australia would need to have a bilateral air services agreement or similar arrangement in place with that country. Australia does not currently have agreements in place with all EK destinations. See Australia's Air Services...

    Citibank Transaction Account Question

    My pay appears the day after my official pay day. I have been told with Citibank there as a third bank involved in the middle (NAB I think).
