    50SC on offer with BP

    Given the lockdowns in NSW and closed borders, I've hardly been anywhere and have found I've used very little fuel. Given there are only 4 days to go I won't make the 5 x $50 unless I buy stuff other than fuel. I would have hoped that BP would extend this offer as there must be others in a...

    I've flown JL and would have no hesitation to fly with them again; a very nice experience.

    How to join British Airways exec club from Australia?

    I've changed my address to Coffs Harbour and added my scottish title so the BA site now addresses me as Lord J... Looks good; can't wait to see the reaction when it appears on my next BA boarding pass.

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

    Indeed, and as @vetrade said, the current version of the website is cough.

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

    Sorry, I forgot I have a subscription; it's been too long since we have been able to fly internationally. For those who don't want to pay you can leave alliances as "All" and pick out the routes/airlines for the alliance of your choice. A little bit tedious perhaps.

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

    I agree that Wikipedia is an excellent source and I use it regularly along with ✈ FlightConnections - All flights worldwide on a flight map!. Sometimes I find using the list on Wiki is best, and sometimes seeing routes on a map helps to give perspective. The two together work well for me.

    Not sure exactly what you are looking for but I find this website can be helpful: ✈ FlightConnections - All flights worldwide on a flight map! Set "alliances" to Oneworld. (Note: Not necessarily 100% accurate.)

    Tranfering points in from e-Rewards has extended Accor points validity for some time, despite the Terms and Conditions stating that was not the case. I have successfully extended the validity of my points twice with this method. At least now Accor have clarified the rules and made all earning...

    Hilton status extension till 2022 [now 2023]

    Given my Diamond status came from a status match from Marriott back in 2019, that seems an appropriate comment:)
