A letter arrived the other day with my PS kit and a Qantas Club card. The leter advised my complimentary QC membership had been extended for 3 months...

    Ideas for 10hr stopover HKG

    I have a 10 hour stopover (1330 - 2330) in HKG next week and wondering if I should stay in the airport or head into the city. I have been to Hong Kong once a couple of years ago for the Rugby 7's. I was there for 3 days and lets just say I don't remember much. Any ideas? I am Oneworld Sapphire...

    RTW options and help for NRT and BOG

    A friend of mine (nah really) is travelling next month from PER and wants stops in NRT and BOG. I suggested he should start looking at getting himself oneway to SIN/NRT/JKT/MNL and start a LONE3/4 or Global Explorer or Circle Pacific. He only needs stops in Japan and Colombia however i think...

    American Airlines booking engine for international flights

    I agree with Mal. JohnK and I both had problems with flights being waitlisted even though the website indicated they were available. I will continue to use this method to book flights but will dilegently check fare class availability before booking. As mentioned, a similiar itinerary for my wife...

    American Airlines booking engine for international flights

    Yes and Yes E tickets received in less than 12 hours from confirmed ticket and credit card statement showing deduction approximately 4 days later. I assume you are paying in GBP? I would call AA UK and don't bother with AA Aus.

    Online check in and points upgrades

    Does online check in (say at T-24 hours) have any effect on how requested points upgrades may come through?

    American Airlines booking engine for international flights

    Phew - mini panic attack over. Ticket confirmed. Just got of the phone to AA UK after marathon 40 minute call. Didn't really get any explanations as to why this waitlisting occurred except OneWorld carriers don't update AA databases reguarly on fares classes available. Didn't sound right to me...

    American Airlines booking engine for international flights

    Well hope I haven't opened up a can of worms. Spoke to AA in Aus today to change the waitlist flight to an earlier flight that had availability and asked the question as to how i could select the flight off the website if no availability. Long wait on hold and was then told the price in AUD to...

    Possible forum posting change?

    Travel Guru - don't agree. I think someone having a good old whinge sometimes generates interesting discussion. As long as spam and inappropriate posts are suitably filtered as Admin suggests happens then first time posters should be encouraged. I believe having a minimum posting reply level...
