    How does Accor treat you as an Elite guest?

    I attained Plat in July and all I got was an envelope with a letter and a Platinum card in it. Was I supposed to receive a gift? Assume you live in Australia. Come to think of it, I reached Diamond shortly after and haven't received a new card.

    Bumped from Row 4 at the gate

    It would've been row 4 or 5 on a two class 717 and bumped back a row. I don't recall being asked, just that I was paged and handed a new boarding pass. It was a while back though, so yes it is possible that I was asked and did confirm that this was okay.

    Bumped from Row 4 at the gate

    I've been bumped from my forward row Y seat as a status passenger in order for a couple to sit together. Wasn't really given a choice, but at least they paged me in the lounge prior to boarding. They didn't stick me at the back though, so I thought "fair enough" and took the new BP.

    Qantas reintroduces entertainment

    WiFi was not disabled for very long. In fact it looks like it was re-enabled in July last year. https://www.executivetraveller.com/news/qantas-brings-back-inflight-wifi The entertainment had remained disabled though, so good to see it's coming back.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Got the quiche and pie from CBR to BNE. The quiche was a lot better then the sausage roll, but that's not saying much.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Flew Mel - Syd on the 737, same choices of cheese plate and beef slop. And the beef ran out at row 3. The other direction, Syd - Mel lunch service had the same beef as well. Though I think it was cous cous instead of mash on that leg.

    747 VH-OJN PlaneTag

    Ordered 5 June, Received 30 June. A lot of USPS shipments are getting stuck waiting to leave the US at the moment, there's a lack of flights given the situation. Regardless of the standard postage price, there's not really a whole lot the merchant or USPS can do. At least the shipment is not...

    747 VH-OJN PlaneTag

    The price seems to depend on what colour you choose. Red is $34.95 USD and White is $29.95 USD. They are pretty pricey though. Still nothing compared to what people are buying the SQ A380 9V-SKA on the resale market. Prices reaching $200 AUD on eBay.

    747 VH-OJN PlaneTag

    PlaneTags have released a series of tag's made from a Qantas 747. VH-OJN was retired in 2011, so not one of the recent planes, but could still be a good collectable given the uncertainty around the future of the fleet. https://planetags.com/products/boeing-qantas-747

    I haven't received this offer either, I've received bonus points offers in the past. Have a Plat Charge. Will just keep the points with Amex.

    Cancelling QF flight bookings made with Amex Travel Credits

    I finally received a refuind, two months later. I also only received the cash component back, and not the Amex travel credit. The person who processed the cancellation on the phone did mention I would get the credit back so we'll have to see.
