    SQ Amenity kits

    I have received 6 or more J kits, in what appear to be random circumstances. In fact, I did the exact same flight 1 week apart SIN-MEL and in the first instance I got none in the second I got one. I have also been given them as gifts by the cabin crew on a flight where they were not provided to...

    Maximising your Fly Time

    Hello All, Long time - no post. Good to be back. I had a review of my travel this year and found I spent 250 hours in the air, plus an extra 100+ at airport before flights in lounges. A quick look at next years bookings and i'm already up to that point without adding any work trips. Small...

    Hi all! Have cleared my messages now so I can respond haha. Was planning on doing some airport runs but turns out I'll be stuck with a TT so won't work for groups. If you need a lift though from OOL though send me a message anyway and I'll see if I can make it work

    OOL BBQ, Drinks - 06/05/2017 (Date Confirmed)

    Hello! Long time, no see. After gallivanting around Europe for the last two years, I am finally returning home to Australia. I am proposing a BBQ and drinks at my new place on the Gold Coast. Would be a lot like the last one a few years ago which a few of you came to. Would be a limited...

A perfect example being London to Budapest next weekend. £100 on Ryan air with everything, £350 on BA with nothing. The 'loyalty'...
