    Never Flown & Nervous

    A lot of good responses here except the idiot who said practice your hobby on board. I tried this once and was kicked off the plane. Something absolutely lame about not being able to shoot skeets in the cabin.

    apec card renewal?

    Yes, me too. My card doesn't expire until November but I received a letter last week. I suppose it is a good think to maintain continuity that the process should start now.

    QF's inflexibility re award seats

    I will admit to being difficult in some circumstances, but this generally involves a serious patronising tone from, lets say, a Harbajhan Singh sympathiser. I have to say that QF staff are normally very helpful and quite pleasant, as they were when I made the original bookings for the boys. I...

    QF's inflexibility re award seats

    I know that when there is no availability in a particular class Qantas are not supposed to provide a seat. It just seems so stupid that they have to get off the flight that would take them to Sydney so they can change terminals just to be likely to miss the flight on which they are booked...

    QF's inflexibility re award seats

    I know rules are rules and all that. Also I am aware of the yield requirements that airlines have. Notwithstanding I am still amazed at the need to have the boys do what is stated. When the tickets came through I didn't question the routing because a flight was a flight and if they wanted to use...

    QF's inflexibility re award seats

    I hate things that make no bloody sense. :mad: My two sons are due to return from a month overseas from LAX. I shouted them flights to and from so they could then springboard into Central America. They are due to board the QF176 at 2355 LAX time and arrive in BNE tomorrow at 0745. They are...

    apec card renewal?

    Dot, you don't have to renew the card when renew your passport. Just advise them of your new number and your amended APEC card (with original expiry date) will be sent out a few days later. The only real problem is if you have to travel almost immediately after getting your new passport, as...

    Lounge Access in Kuala Lumpur?

    Plaza Premium Lounge it was. Carlsberg beer on tap and a rotating hot selection of east/west dishes. It is the ante-room to the larger section of the PPL but was OK in at least being a place where you could relax before the flight. I had seat 1A on JQ which was fine because there wasn't a 1B.

    Lounge Access in Kuala Lumpur?

    Thanks, that at least is a qualified yes. It would make sense that it would be MP lounge given that all the others are not affiliated with QF in any way. I will find out tomorrow night I suppose.

    Lounge Access in Kuala Lumpur?

    One of the frustrations of often being in KUL was that I had generally flown QF/BA from SYD to SIN and then made the short hop to KUL and back. No *Alliance status meant no lounge access unless I was willing to pay for it. I am flying back on JQ *class and wonder if I can access the MArco...

    Are Hotels Cutting Costs with Laundry?

    I see! So when you take it out of your bag it absorbs all of the air borne antigens in the room so you can have a concentrated burst of nasties assaulting your senses all night!:evil: :evil:

    Are Hotels Cutting Costs with Laundry?

    Why not just a pillow slip? I know a lot of people say they need their own pillow for a sound sleep but if it is just a matter of hygiene surely that is a bulky and unneccessary addition to your luggage.

    Are Hotels Cutting Costs with Laundry?

    So did they do all the administrative stuff for you while you were in bed? Wow, that's real service! My only bad experience was in Hong Kong in the slightly mis-named Charterhouse hotel. A ----house it was. The bed was clearly re-made and pubic hairs on the bathroom floor made the stay an...

    The totally off-topic thread

    Collingwood to beat the Wet Coke Eagles this week. Play the pussies and upset them, then beat the Hawks in the Granny who will have exceeded expectations by beating the Rooboys and dark lords from Alberton.
