    Nightmare journey from Canada to Australia on UA/AC (and almost QF) resulting in an accidental visit to newly reopened Polaris lounge in SFO

    Thanks everyone! To add insult to injury, since getting home I've found out that Air Canada re-ticketed the flights such that the AC-operated flights had my Air Canada aeroplan number instead of the UA mileage plus number where I'm trying to collect status for. So now half of the flights were...

    Nightmare journey from Canada to Australia on UA/AC (and almost QF) resulting in an accidental visit to newly reopened Polaris lounge in SFO

    I just got into Melbourne last week (Thursday) from Canada after spending 3 months there visiting my wife’s family (we needed to go for 3+ months to get the travel exemption needed at the time). I travelled back with my wife and one-year-old toddler, and wanted to share our experience which was...

    VA2.0 International Partners

    How many points per person per direction? Is it fixed or variable pricing on points? On Aeroplan they seem to vary wildly.

    Alaska Airlines joining Oneworld

    I know that for a while there the AS hard product depended whether you were on a legacy AS plane or if you were on a Virgin America plane that had become part of AS with the AS purchase of Virgin America. I am not sure if they've now standardised the fleet.

    Thanks Matt! That's really helpful. Yes understood about the status match but might as well earn some additional United miles in the meantime.

    MileagePlus Premier Status Match Challenge 2021 (*A G up to 2023)

    Quick follow up question... Does anyone know if AC flights "Operated by Air Canada Express - Jazz" earn miles on United? On the United website they talk about Air Canada but don't say either way if their subsidiary operated flights count. Thanks!

    Earning on DL marketed flights operated by WS?

    I am looking at a WS operated itinerary and would like to earn VA points and SCs. Do you know if Velocity points are earned on DL flight numbers operated by WS? I know I can credit WS flight numbers to QFF but they don't earn any SCs with QF. Thanks!

    QF B737 Replacement Competition

    I would rather fly on E190s any day over A320s or 737s. The BA Embraer fleet out of LCY were my favourite planes to fly shorthall in Europe.

    Book airbnb via Qantas site not working?

    My mum is trying to book an airbnb via the Qantas website the usual way in order to earn Qantas points on substantial booking. She is logged on the Qantas website and when she tries to search airbnb via the website, it asks her to enter her QFF number and surname. When she does that instead of...
