    Are you Going to use the COVIDsafe App?

    Have downloaded and will use. Any pushback makes me wonder if people realise how Google and Apple know where and when the traffic jams are.

    New Qantas safety demo 2020

    This bugged me every single time! Surely someone would have noticed and called for another take in the filming. At least she left her bag behind.

    Global Qantas Double Status Credits Offer (Book 20-26 Feb 2020; Fly: 28 Feb 2020-14 Feb 2021)

    Looks like my day tomorrow has just become mapping out the next few months worth of movements!

    Make an offer to upgrade on your flight to Sydney. How many emails is enough?

    The “Last chance to upgrade” always makes me giggle, especially when it is followed up by 12 more “please make a bid” emails.

    "You are in top 5% of Velocity Flyers." - and that is it??

    I got top 5%, with only 20 flights but 70,542km. Seems maybe the percentage is weighted more to number of sectors flown. Once I re-qualified WP until Oct 2020, I started switching to QF.

    Need Help Deciding which Loyalty Program to Join...

    This is how I go about it. Means I’m not tied in to any particular chain, and can use the free credit however I like as well. Room upgrades, early/late check in/out don’t really matter to me, so I’d rather bank the free room credits for holidays with my wife and not be limited to where I can...

    Answered VA Status credits question

    That one. Your SC balance doesn't reset to 0, however the 400 SC needed to re-qualify for Gold will start, at 0, from the date you drop back to Gold in Dec 2019.

    How many Velocity points have you earned/spent?

    Earned: 1,951,603 Redeemed: 1,882,300 But currently checking daily for 2x J rewards from LAX which will add another 191,000 to the redeemed column. Not sure how that works as it’ll push my redeemed total to be more than my earn.

    Velocity Hotels (Expedia)

    Although having completed a booking a few weeks ago with the 9 point/$ promotion, so far I have received 0 points/$ :rolleyes:

    Velocity have messed up my Award Booking - HELP

    Simple name change isn’t an option? Or available as an Any Seat redemption? If so, I would be requesting Velocity to cover the excessive points difference.

    SQ refurbishing KrisFlyer Gold lounge in SIN

    Chances are the temporary lounge will even be a step up over the current KrisFlyer Gold lounge! Toilets in a lounge ... who would’ve thunk it?! :p
