    Bonus points Coles catalogue

    How long do bonus points from the purchase of gift cards detailed in the Coles weekly catalogue usually take to post? I thought it was overnight with the standard points but it hasn't come through for a Netflix gift card I recently purchased. Thanks

    EY J award flights following changes

    Just interested in people views if they would still book J award flights on EY using velocity points given the dramatic increases in carrier surcharges back last year? Availability to ports in Europe is pretty wide open for wide dates but the cost would be circa $1,200 and 278k in points. Given...

    Accor plus favourites

    Just experienced my first use of the Accor Plus dining benefits at Q dining in circular quay. Impressions were the food was nice, but not great, and the service did not live up to the price of the food at all. However with an $80 saving on food it came to be reasonable value...... Still would...

    Careem- Middle East Uber

    If anyone is travelling in the UAE, if you sign up for Careem, an Uber type service you receive a free 1st ride. This was enough to get from AUH into the city as a car was not provided on my fare. Good service, car was same quality as Uber Black, even though it was the cheaper Uber X version I...

    Downgrade of Coast to Coast Services

    I remember seeing advertised somewhere all SYD-PER services were to be on A330. This seems to have quickly changed with the 1730 flight from Jan 2014 been downgraded to a 737 service. Anyone know more?

    Airline signs removed at SYD on departures

    Dropped Scooby off at the airport today and the airline signs on the right hand side of the road (indicating check in positions) have been replaced with generic "Sydney Airport" signs. I guess I knew I was at Sydney airport, but didn't know where Virgin was......

    Another Jetstar complaint

    So. I was silly enough to book a Jetstar flight from ZQN to AKL next January as the times were very convenient. They since altered the time by 1 hr 45 minutes which means I would be pushing it to make an International flight later that evening. I called their contact centre to ask for a...
