    Discussion on Cats, Moggies and Felines in general [with Pictures]

    This is Caesar, purebred Ragdoll. He’s now 9 months old and 5.7kg, he is a monster. I am not sure what he was watching on the television.

    Gold yanked - thoughts?

    Yes. I actually know of a recent case where the banner appeared and status retained even though the status credits weren’t obtained. A new card for the status was issued with expiry 12 months later. This seems contrary to the no further status comps posts, however did occur without an offer to...

    ANZAC Day Protocols

    i have attended the ceremony in Lae which must also be credited, the cemetery is thoroughly maintained. As a former service member (RAAF) and non-warlike service, for myself I would not wear any part of uniform with civilian dress, however, this is of course a personal choice. I also have...

    New York in December - worth the inflated pricing?

    I just had a look, the rates for Crowne Plaza Times Square have increased dramatically, however points are still a good option with the current bonus. $900 USD a night v 60000 points, 3 nights can be had for $1000 USD (80% bonus points, 180000 for $1000 USD, it was a lot better a few months ago).

    New York in December - worth the inflated pricing?

    I've also found reward nights at Crowne Plaza for New Years Eve to be exceptionally good value, although I believe the redemption rates have risen. When I last looked I could buy and redeem points for less than $300 a night when the cash rate was $1800. Edit: Misquote

    No reward nights IC O2 London

    Possibly something in your preferences, perhaps log out and search, then log back in for the booking. I did a second search for dates in April and found availability then as well.

    No reward nights IC O2 London

    I picked random dates for March and found rooms for 45000 points on the app. No idea why you aren't seeing them unless your search criteria doesn't match such as number of people or bed type.

    She has now booked with Club Med for all flights and accommodation. Singapore Airlines had the shortest connections.

    Maldives or Tahiti

    Thanks all, it looks like she is going to book Club Med in the Maldives with Singapore Airlines flights. It is much easier flying there than Bora Bora.

    One way fares SYD-SFO under $500

    I am seeing one way fares on AA and United from SYD-SFO under $500 all through 2018 on Google Flights. Premium economy around $1300, Business $2400. Cheap fares are also on offer to DFW from AA under $700. No doubt it is a system glitch but appears bookable on the AA Australian website.
