    ITA Matrix only showing QF Flex Fares?

    Yes, I've noticed too. I guess all QF fares are not available in whatever database ITA search into. It's been like that with some CX fares for years.

    Platinum One experiences?

    I just received a QF email mentioning a further 12 month extension of status for members with status expiring in 2021 if they book at least 1 flight in 2021. Also the ability to rollover 1800 SC into 2022. My status expires in December 2021, I'm a lucky one!

    Platinum One experiences?

    A P1 friend also paid 1,200 points for shipping. Must be a glitch. My confirmation email clearly shows no shipping costs:

    I just ordered it and the delivery was free. Is there various delivery options?

    What's your prediction on the Australian Dollar?

    I've long given up on trying to understand the real impact of new "unconventional" monetary policy tools of QE and negative rates, but here's the quote from Lowe: “When the pandemic was at its worst and there were severe restrictions on activity, we judged that there was little to be gained...

    What's your prediction on the Australian Dollar?

    I would think the RBA hinting last week that they are ready to cut rates again to support the economy will keep the AUD lower.

    NAB QF Rewards Signature card application questions

    I waited two days and card was approved within 24 hours. I just followed up with a call a few weeks later to make sure I wouldn't be charged the $395 annual fee.

    747 Bar Carts

    The email I received as P1 says the following: "You have received this email because you are subscribed to Qantas Frequent Flyer 'Exclusive food and wine offers from Qantas Wine' emails." So maybe people not signed up to receive Qantas Wine marketing did not receive the email?

    747 Bar Carts

    QF have put 100 carts aside for P1. "We have put aside 100 bar carts for the first 100 Platinum One members that order. Don’t miss the chance to recreate part of the travel experience in your own home."

    Platinum One experiences?

    I guess they are starting to worry that after being grounded for maybe 15 months or more some people may start flying QR, EK or SQ. So they need to figure out how to get P1s engaged with the program while not flying internationally. I know two P1 who recently told me that after the travel ban is...

    I suggested they look at BA GGL list of benefits if they really want to improve P1.

    How fast do points post?

    Qantas hotel points can take forever to post (i.e. months). Qantas wine typically 2 to 5 days.

    Qantas 747 Memorabilia Auction

    I said I would expect 1k to 2k, but it seems they were also trying to find out. She mentioned LH 747 carts going for 2k+ online.

    Ask The Pilot

    Thanks so much for the detailed answer! Based on what you mention it appears GA716 was a little low.

    Ask The Pilot

    I've noticed this week that two Garuda flights were about a thousand feet lower than all other aircraft when doing the turn over Port Melbourne/Yarraville to align with MEL runway 34. At the end of the turn they were 1,700ft versus 2,700ft for other airlines. Is there a minimum altitude for that...

    Qantas 747 Memorabilia Auction

    I got a call last week from Qantas advisory panel asking if I'd be interested in buying a 747 service cart and how much I think it would be worth. They were also thinking of selling the carts with champagne, amenity kits, pajama, etc included inside. Good on them to think outside the box.

    Ethiopian 737 Max 8 crash and Fallout

    Very cunning. It will be difficult for people to see a difference between 738, 737-800 and 737-8 when booking flights.
