    The NEW Velocity Status Run Master thread

    IHG benefit does not provide breakfast (or much at all, really, other than late check out and higher points earning).

    QFF and Award Wallet

    I get the QF SMS repeatedly from AW, but have just learnt to ignore them.

    Most airports challenge

    Haha - a job like that might have been a better way to finance such travels. Just trying to see as much of this country as I can. As you note, Ive covered most of East Coast, now need to do more on West and interior

    Lounge access flying Scoot as Vel Gold

    Scoot, like TigerAir, is a LCC - they’re not going to pay for lounge access. Some call centre staff are completely clueless. The Priority Pass Lounges at SIN are not too bad.

    And from further memory he tacked on a turnaround to Belfast as well.

    Has anyone had success with the call-up "Marginal" xASA's?

    Yes, mine's an August booking too, so I am not that worried about it - at the moment.

    Has anyone had success with the call-up "Marginal" xASA's?

    I booked one on Monday that hasn't been ticketed and no ticket number appears on CMT. Yet I booked a couple of paid-for flights yesterday that have been ticketed.

    What's your shortest turn-around time (INT) ?

    Although the point of this was to requal (so effectively a SC run), the 10hrs in LA were used very productively as a lengthy shopping trip (I actually took an empty suitcase over there and it was completely filled will all manner of Christmas and birthday presents, as well as many clothes for...

    What's your shortest turn-around time (INT) ?

    I've done a few of these. Last week did AKL-OOL-AKL, with 1hr on the ground at OOL. Last month did AKL-NLK-AKL with 1hr on the ground at NLK. Further afield, have done MIA-AUA-MIA, with a very quick overnight (same plane in/out). Also done AKL-LAX-AKL on the same plane, with about 10hrs at...

    How much have you flown in 2013?

    Yesterday flew the last of my 188 sectors for the year (which is a record for me). Only did just over 131K miles, though, as many flights were very short domestic NZ flights.

    [Rumor from QF CSAs] Qantas to bring back online mASA's?

    Red Roo, thanks for your response. That was the number I called (the intl one, as I was ringing from AKL) and the responses I received were as outlined above. I will try again and hopefully it will be third time lucky. I have previously booked a few mASAs over the phone and had no issues.

    [Rumor from QF CSAs] Qantas to bring back online mASA's?

    Thanks, markis10. I will try again . I might ask specifically for the Premium Desk, but the previous agents haven't sounded so premium to me.

    [Rumor from QF CSAs] Qantas to bring back online mASA's?

    I have tried to book a CNS-AKL J mASA twice today. In both cases, they told me that a new system has been rolled out today and they have been unable to book it for me. I have been directed to use the Points + Pay option instead. The first guy I got admitted that he doesn't usually sit on the...
