    International Carry on criteria: Boogie Boards.

    I'd second the notion of checking it in. Well actually now i rethink it, checking boogie boards in doesn't always end up well. YMMV!

    Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi?

    Tough call! But if I had to choose I would go with Hanoi purely for the fact it's closer to one of my favourite cities, Sapa, the city in the clouds.

    A girly topic for you blokes! Which wallet?

    Everything (including my wallet) goes into my back pack these days - I can't stand having anything even the slightest bit bulky in either back pocket.

    Honestly, what is the point of Platinum One?

    You're right mcnul73, the whole P1 thing is quite ridiculous imho. People that fly that much on QF metal (and probably in premium cabins) are crazy not to start crediting to another (say AA) program and reap the (significant) rewards.

    QF29 vs QF127 to HKG, upgrade chances?

    Upgrade chance on either flight is a lottery so based on that if I paid for an economy ticket I'd 100% go with the 388 ex SYD.

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    re: "oneworld" award (140K/280K/420K) Planning - The Definitive Thread This is not always the case. At times if a 2 class flight and on a 280k J award you will get seated in the F cabin. Not always but it happens semi regularly.

    Heads up about program changes

    Regarding the award seats JohnK, have you tried asking them to open up what you are after?

    Agreed. The whole reason they send you offers is not for your benefit.
