    An Awful Qantas Experience That Must Be Shared.

    I was recently on QF27 from SYD-SCL with my wife (21st December). We paid PE and successfully upgraded with points to J on the 747 upper deck. We were not unreasonable with any of our requests but service was really mediocre and the flight attendants really made us feel like that they didn’t...

    Made any travel mistakes lately?

    I’m not sure if I was lucky or they just pitied my stupidity but I didn’t pay a cent extra for all the rebooked flights. I was expecting to basically pay for a full ticket given that I missed the flight on my own terms. I managed to get to SFO out of ORD on the next flight (missed the SFO-SYD...

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    Thanks for the suggestion. I might not have time to do the DPS-BKI flight as I will going there for a wedding and the Missus will be going with me as well (leaving her alone for 20 hours besides the pool is probably not the worst thing that I’ve done...) Any suggestions for AU domestic based...

    Delta SkyMiles Status Match Discussion

    Seems like it is soft landing. I was matched to Gold back in Jan 2019 for 3 months but haven’t flown enough to maintain gold as per the challenge and now I’m silver.

    Delta SkyMiles Status Match Discussion

    Just got back from my holidays - quick update: - managed to get into SkyTeam lounge in SYD and all CI operates lounges in TPE (both during transit and at departure) and NRT with no major issues. Slight non-event at SYD as I only obtained the status challenge a while after I purchased my CI...

    Delta SkyMiles Status Match Discussion

    Thanks gapmatt and Mattg - that's good to know! gapmatt - mate you're luck as I've checked the seats a few times online and the best seat that I could get for TPE - CTS is row 46. I've got Q class tickets for the SYD - TPE - CTS legs maybe that explains why?
