    Melbourne Airport Valet Parking Damage

    That's what I've done, but the valet is run by a different company, TGS, which is owned by SPOTLESS. And they're not interested in resolving it. Guess I'll see what happens when they get the VCAT papers. You'd hope they couldn't be bothered over $400 bucks and will just pay it. It's a shame...

    Melbourne Airport Valet Parking Damage

    There seem to be a few old threads, but nothing recent, so wanted to check if people had any recent experiences. I parked my car in at the Valet run by Melbourne Airport - or TechGuard Security on behalf of Melbourne Airport. When I picked it up three days later, there was some damage done to...

    MH Flights and Status Credits with Qantas

    That lack of detail is now clear ;) It's tricky for lay people though, as the majority of the marketing material on the Qantas site itself directs people to use the points calculator - as an AFF user I should know better :) Thanks for the link - great work Serfty!

    MH Flights and Status Credits with Qantas

    I agree entirely, and it's my fault. But you must admit, they're not exactly forthcoming with the information... Good point about the summary on the booking page, but I didn't notice that when I booked....hindsight eh! As its a summary for all flights, you'd have to check each leg using the...

    MH Flights and Status Credits with Qantas

    Thanks for this, exactly what I was looking for...I had missed this section and gone straight to Partner Earning Table. I know it's my fault for not checking, but it is frustrating that you book through Qantas in good faith, and then find out its in a non-earning fare bucket.

    MH Flights and Status Credits with Qantas

    I wanted to bump an old thread, but they were all closed... I have a question in regards to MH flights and QF Status Credits. I booked MEL - SIN - KUL return through Qantas in December last year, with the SIN - KUL flights on MH. Economy across all sectors. QF have advised that the MH flights...

    PER J lounge + staff

    Here now, must be the best domestic lounge hands down. Heck, I've been in worse International Qantas lounges. Staff very, very good. Pizza good. Beer good. Crowd good. 5 stars Qantas.

    QF to Confirm Points Upgrade Requests as late as at the gate when boarding

    Didn't think this warranted a new thread, and I feel like this is a question I should know the answer too... I have a points upgrade request in from PE to J, LAX to SYD - I just got an Expert Flyer alert that there is a U class seat available on my flight - is it possible to call Qantas and...

    Pocket WiFi or Phone Hotspot?

    This is to do with GSM bands being different depending on which country you're in. I have a couple of different pocket wifi devices I use depending on which country I'm visiting. For example, my Telstra device obviously works here, but also works in Bali. My AT&T device works in the US and...

    How do Hilton treat you as an Elite?

    It's just a series of events over the last 12 months. High room rates, lack of upgrades, getting charged for coffee, $72 a night to park the car, small rooms. The room I'm currently in stunk of smoke and had a running toilet all night. The following morning I asked at the EL to be moved - no...
