    Travel Insurance which covers COVID-19?

    I notice that the current CBA PDS includes this General Exclusion: “We will not pay for… 28. Claims caused by, or claims arising from, an epidemic, pandemic or outbreak of a contagious disease or any derivative or mutation of such viruses. Refer to who.int and smartraveller.gov.au for further...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Not having a go at you, and I think I can detect a note of sarcasm &/or hyperbole in your post... But just to correct a common misconception about the DefCon scale... Rather than (as intuition would expect) becoming scarier as the number increases, it actually runs in the opposite direction...

    The COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Australia has begun

    I’ve been to a few games at the MCG during the very brief window of opportunity... The experience there was very much analagous to going to a restaurant, cafe, pub, etc. or being a passenger on a commercial flight: mask on while indoors and moving about; mask off while eating/drinking or...

    Qantas Classic Reward Ticketing Delays

    Even if you felt a little bit guilty about the need to alert them to the undercharge, I think it would take a moral conviction of extreme proportion to wait on hold for over 6 hours to get through to them...

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    A few days ago the message said “greater than 2 hours”. My call was answered after 6.5 hours (which, to be fair, *is* greater than 2...). No callback offered.

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    During my last call the csa said something like “the callback system seems to shut down when the queue time gets over 2 or 2.5 hours”. I don’t know if this is fact or not...

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    If you don’t have a document with an e-ticket number on it (it will start with 081-), then you should call and ask for it to be ticketed. There are numerous tales of woe on this forum regarding award seats being lost from unticketed itineraries. Once lost, there’s no guarantee (and sometimes no...

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    You’re fortunate that you’re not Bronze.... I waited on hold for 6.5 hours today, but at least I got what I was looking for.

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    Update to above: I finally finished building this itinerary today 🎉 Using the SE Asia staging point method, its two return trips MEL - Europe, one via HKG, one via DOH. And the best bit... even after all this time, the points still capped out at 280k each... Priceless. As an added bonus, due to...

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    Well I’m NB, and I waited on hold (no call-back offered) for 6.5 hrs on Super Tuesday last week - only for the csa to be unable to book J seats that we could both see on the website 🤬. Fortunately I was able to get the job done the next morning, with a call- back & 1.5 hr wait. The Wednesday...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    I think you’re going to be ok. On the 2nd line, the info requires “Green Pass” OR negative test... I think that tourists can get a Green Pass. Refer to this info on the Italian Gov’t website...
