    Thanks very much for the advice. I'll put in a request to change 38A, and add both upgrade requests as well. Cheers, Paul.

    How to find out which seat is missing a window

    I'm about to go MEL-LRH on QF9 and have seat 38A (unless my points upgrade comes through). SeatGuru shows this seat as 'no window' but QF staff assure me it has a window. (When flying on 737's domestically, I find that staff advice on blocked window locations is not at all consistent.) Does...

    First mobile trial on qantas 767

    I've since spoken to the '3' data support people, and they said: - '3' have a gprs international roaming agreement with AeroMobile. - My phone (dopod 838 pro) will not work using standard '3' settings (he couldn't explain why one sms actually worked). - Need to change GPRS phone settings to...

    First mobile trial on qantas 767

    An answer: The guy behind me was able to send and receive SMSs easily. A clarification: I just got my '3' Bill - and saw an entry as follows: 08 May 09:49pm 61430004010 Send SMS Telenor (Aero), Norway 00:00 1.42 So it appears that I may have used the service to send a single SMS...

    First mobile trial on qantas 767

    I know there are a few threads that mention this trial - but I didn't see one that was dedicated to it. I've had two chances now to try the AEROMOBILE service - and encountered some problems - and made some observations. First observations - the 767 using the new pico cell has a the letters...

    Adding paid US sectors into DONE

    I'm going to the airport this morning, so will try and pay at the airline's sales desk, and will use cash if I need to! If that doesn't work, I don't know what I'll do.

    Adding paid US sectors into DONE

    Thanks Kiwi Flyer! That is a relief - glad I'm OW Emerald with QF!. So how I do book a flight on aa.com and quote my QFF number? If I quote my number correctly, will it show as OW Emerald on my boarding pass? Regards, Paul.

    Adding paid US sectors into DONE

    Hi All, I'm starting a Business Class Round World trip in June, but have used up all 6 sectors in the US, including one trans-continental flight. I now need to tack on a short visit to Washington on the way home, so will add a few days to my stay in LAX and book a return flight to IAD, as...

    Distance MEL to Alice Springs / Ayers Rock

    The current sale makes MEL-AYQ possible for $189 (great value), but it is significantly more expensive to get to or from ASP than AYQ - even when specials are not taken into account. (Plus the MEL-AYQ gives an extra 5 SCs.) Also - the scheduled 3 hour flight to AYQ from MEL gives you a movie -...

    Distance MEL to Alice Springs / Ayers Rock

    Just wondering if anybody has noticed that according to the Points Calculator, Ayers Rock is 1202 Miles from Melbourne and Alice Springs is 1156 Miles - yet the route map (and any other map) clearly shows that Alice Springs is further from Melbourne than Ayers Rock. Any ideas why? Cheers, Paul.
