    The future of Airlines and their alliances

    The pressurisation - depressurisation cycle is the determining factor in airframe lifespan, not take offs and landings per se. Of course, they usually match up 1:1, so take offs - landings is a proxy measure. https://www.atsb.gov.au/media/29959/b20050205.pdf

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    This comes to $3.15/sc (not $2.15). CBR-MEL-SYD-DPS is a better earner.

    Valid for travel between 11 May – 21 Nov Looks like Qantas have matched these prices, e.g. MEL-AKL QF codeshare on EK metal in F for $1079 :)

    Yep, KRW 1,099,500 is the price for economy (return) not business. Oh well :-|

    AA/JL First Class (F) from ICN (Seoul) to NYC - AUD$3800 return

    Yep, country is set to Korea, but aa.com is still pricing at over 2,200,000 KRW for me (over $2500 AUD) :evil: Just checking, but you do realise that aa.com shows prices for the outbound and inbound sectors separately, i.e. the price displayed at the top of your search results (1,099,500 KRW or...

    AA/JL First Class (F) from ICN (Seoul) to NYC - AUD$3800 return

    Where have you been able to price it for only AUD $1290? aa.com (and everywhere else I've tried... all the usual suspects) are all coming in at AUD $2500+ :-|

    LHR-MEL in J for $1888 return on Air China

    Am still getting the same error message that flightobserver mentioned above; "Departure date is too early." BUT, it's not actually possible to change the departure date (all dates aside from 8 Dec are "greyed out"). So can't book the fare. What's going on CA? :-|

    Tigerair "Saturday Flight Fever"

    Tigerair Australia is not being rebranded. It's 100% owned by Virgin Australia, not SQ. So your confusion might continue? :confused:

    Domestic flights for $9

    Unfortunately all the $9 fares ex MEL have already sold out :( I didn't check availability from other ports, so perhaps there is still hope for other people looking to grab a bargain :mrgreen:

    SYD to SIN $386 return Singapore Airlines

    Beijing is $290 or so from Melbourne. VA and SQ are going to be quite a bit out of pocket if they honour these... ;)

    Hilton Noumea

    I was there a few weeks ago. Booked the cheapest room type, was upgraded to a 1 bedroom apartment (am HH Gold) which was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is OK, but there are better dining options elsewhere.
