    Who on AFF are the cruise gurus and what are your preferred cruise lines and ships?

    Nudged - no credit for Scenic apparently 😢 Glad I went to the financial planner when we had a nice happy savings balance .... because it's getting obliterated thanks to this trip!

    Our final Bula time.

    Looks terrible. And I'm glad for your sake the $5 bottles of Gossips are gone from the J cabin.

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

    Even if booked before they exit? For the ~$250 odd, I might just buy SCL-EZE return economy tickets to be safe.

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

    Interestingly I'm able to do a dummy award booking for SCL-EZE in November, after LA leaves oneworld. Wonder if that means it can still be booked up til October? Mind you, if there are issues with the flight then I'm sure you'd be up the creek without a paddle.

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

    Ah yes well picked up. I actually have a trip ending in MNL which I need to get home from. So any tax savings are a bonus :) I'll have to book the SYD-SCL tickets as soon as they come out I believe, so I'll only be booking the first 2 legs first up. So presumably I'll lose the tax savings...

    Can I get you guys to error check this one for me: mnl-syd-bne (stop 1) syd-scl-eze (stop 2) - I think this one may be a problem thanks to LATAM leaving oneworld - presumably if I make this a surface sector, do both count as a stop? I'd quite like to avoid paying the Chile reciprocity visa...

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    Looking for clarification about earning on AA domestic since october - using the points calculator, we are meant to select 'business' for flights advertised as 'first' right?

    Enjoy the trip! Hopefully avoiding the 38 degree weather we're having :oops:

    Who on AFF are the cruise gurus and what are your preferred cruise lines and ships?

    Hmm no mention of an on board credit from the Virtuoso agent you recommended .... will give her a nudge ;) Yes it was LTL and FMs amazing trip reports which have inspired me to go ahead!

    Who on AFF are the cruise gurus and what are your preferred cruise lines and ships?

    Never thought I would be researching cruises, but here I am, looking at Antarctica cruises! Have done many small boat adventures and dive liveaboarads but never had anything with more than 20 people on it. Gonna be a culture shock! Suspect I'll end up on another around Iceland / Fjordland /...

    ANZ QFF Black - 120k Bonus Points, $275 back after 4-months, $450 annual fee (DEC 2019)

    Got one phone call in regards to my application, citing concern my 2x payslips were different amounts - I pointed out one of the payslips I was on annual leave so got 14% leave loading. Then approved on the spot. Relatively painless.

    New [Amex] statement credits

    Absolutely I agree. I went out Wednesday to buy a bunch of stuff I needed with the thought I would finally use some of my 10 chances. Not a single one accepted amex! Even the chemist I tried (Terry White) is listed on the map, but I went to a different branch and they wouldn't take it...

    black friday airfares sales

    Nothing. Pity! Most of the good sales recently have only been for flights until March or May. I'm realllllly hoping xmas/NYE specials are good for my planned July/August trip (Costa Rica, Hawaii and Alaska).
