    3 Weeks in Spain (via Japan)

    Love Japan and am often thinking about Spain so will certainly be paying attention on this one!

    South Africa Solo

    Thanks for confirming. Got basically three days around Vic Falls incl. one day on a trip to Chobe, so coming back a day earlier works out ok and am sure will be something around Joburg that will be a good way to spend the final day!

    South Africa Solo

    May be a question best put in a separate section of the forum, but am currently looking at finishing up from Vic Falls on the morning of the 15th, flying back to JNB on BA landing at 3.35pm for the 7.55pm QF64 back to Sydney. It does make me a bit nervous knowing that each airline operating...

    Tokyo - Pros and Cons

    Many of your negatives are so utterly in contrast to my experiences in this brilliant city (& country). But big differences in age, mobility, context etc so very much each to their own. If you find it difficult unless you've got cash and time to burn then am sure there would be places more...

    QF Double Status Credits - Book by Feb [Now] 25, Travel Feb 25-Aug 31, 2019

    Thanks mate. Unfortunately have to change the dates pushing it back a month, will have to go back through the old emails to identify the specified period. Be nice if it all works out but not the end of the world if it doesn't - I'm just glad I booked it flexi!

    QF Double Status Credits - Book by Feb [Now] 25, Travel Feb 25-Aug 31, 2019

    Last year I bought a fully flex domestic fare to Cairns during a DSC promotion period (early August IIRC). If I need to change the date of the flights, will this affect my eligibility? Wondering if anyone has encountered this dilemma before.

    South Africa Solo

    Yeah pretty much this. I expect to be travelling a lot less for work in the next year with our next big project being locally based, so knowing that I will likely be tied up with that for the most part of the year (suspect there won't be many opportune moments to take a week or two at a time)...

    South Africa Solo

    Have noticed a few have done Hwange, CHobe & Kruger. What I am looking at is a 7 day package taking in Hwnage, Chobe & Victoria Falls, perhaps something along the lines of: or...

    South Africa Solo

    Thinking about it more am keen to get to Cape Town that evening and start off with a couple of days in Franschoek, but with having to purchase a separate ticket for JNB-CPT does leave me open to the risk of any delays so might have to go with an airport hotel or stay in Joburg the night.

    South Africa Solo

    Thanks for that. Is self-driving pretty much the only option? Was hoping to base myself in Cape Town a few days see the cricket, table mountain, Robben Island, coast, wineries preferably without a car. Love food but going solo on this one so don't think I'll be doing much fine dining. What I'm...

    South Africa Solo

    Thanks mate. I don't post a lot but have enjoyed yours and many others trip reports for various locations. A lot of inspiration. Had a couple of terrific trips to Japan as well as Sri Lanka and SIngapore in the past year but never ended up with the motivation/courage to write it up here.

    Baggage drop Haneda. Qantas flt 26

    Have done this flight a few times and don't believe there's a way around it unfortunately. Guess the only consolation is that Haneda is great for a look around, can imagine that carting round large baggage until 7pm would be a pain in the **** though.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Exact same menu and same choices as I did on a recent PER-SIN flight. Would be more than happy with that in a city restaurant, that trout entree was terrific. Usually pass on dessert when flying but the first two courses put me in a good mood to try and I was not disappointed at all. Great flight.

    Unusual and uncommon routes

    Not too shocking. There is quite a number of FIFO's working in NW WA who either reside in Indonesia for their breaks and greater still who go for a weeks R&R. Be interested to see stats on it though.

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    Cheers - so as suspected this is basically wrong?
