    Points upgrade if nominating Velocity

    I had to change the booking to use my KF number to process the upgrade (before that the upgrade with points option was greyed out) and then change it back to the velocity number afterwards. Flight is next week but Singapore Airlines call centre said it could be done

    The Explorer Credit Card (New AMEX Card!)

    I got this when applying for WBC Black AMEX (already hold Explorer and Platinum Edge). AMEX didn't seem to know what the issue was but claimed they would request a manual review I haven't heard anything in the 10 days since

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

    Classic rewards - there is a few days of availability that week for SYD-SCL (Currently Gold for what it's worth). Award was correctly priced as 280k. I'll follow up with Qantas if nothing looks egregiously wrong with the route

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

    Hoping someone can confirm that a surface sector is counted as a transit rather than a stopover? ie. if I was to fly into WAW and out of FRA is this considered one of the 5 stopovers or just a transit?
