    Bumped from Row 4 at the gate

    It would've been row 4 or 5 on a two class 717 and bumped back a row. I don't recall being asked, just that I was paged and handed a new boarding pass. It was a while back though, so yes it is possible that I was asked and did confirm that this was okay.

    Bumped from Row 4 at the gate

    I've been bumped from my forward row Y seat as a status passenger in order for a couple to sit together. Wasn't really given a choice, but at least they paged me in the lounge prior to boarding. They didn't stick me at the back though, so I thought "fair enough" and took the new BP.

    Qantas reintroduces entertainment

    WiFi was not disabled for very long. In fact it looks like it was re-enabled in July last year. https://www.executivetraveller.com/news/qantas-brings-back-inflight-wifi The entertainment had remained disabled though, so good to see it's coming back.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Got the quiche and pie from CBR to BNE. The quiche was a lot better then the sausage roll, but that's not saying much.

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Flew Mel - Syd on the 737, same choices of cheese plate and beef slop. And the beef ran out at row 3. The other direction, Syd - Mel lunch service had the same beef as well. Though I think it was cous cous instead of mash on that leg.

    747 VH-OJN PlaneTag

    Ordered 5 June, Received 30 June. A lot of USPS shipments are getting stuck waiting to leave the US at the moment, there's a lack of flights given the situation. Regardless of the standard postage price, there's not really a whole lot the merchant or USPS can do. At least the shipment is not...

    747 VH-OJN PlaneTag

    The price seems to depend on what colour you choose. Red is $34.95 USD and White is $29.95 USD. They are pretty pricey though. Still nothing compared to what people are buying the SQ A380 9V-SKA on the resale market. Prices reaching $200 AUD on eBay.

    747 VH-OJN PlaneTag

    PlaneTags have released a series of tag's made from a Qantas 747. VH-OJN was retired in 2011, so not one of the recent planes, but could still be a good collectable given the uncertainty around the future of the fleet. https://planetags.com/products/boeing-qantas-747

    I haven't received this offer either, I've received bonus points offers in the past. Have a Plat Charge. Will just keep the points with Amex.

    Cancelling QF flight bookings made with Amex Travel Credits

    I finally received a refuind, two months later. I also only received the cash component back, and not the Amex travel credit. The person who processed the cancellation on the phone did mention I would get the credit back so we'll have to see.

    Qantas Revenue booking cancellations (under covid19)

    Amex tried the same with me too - it's very clear that Qantas allow refunds for cancelled flights even in this current situation. Not sure how to get them to understand the QF written policy...

    Amex travel credit & travel insurance

    I got through to Amex today and they were quite hesitant at giving a refund, even though I pointed them at Qantas' terms of carriage/policy. I have a cancelled flight. They said they'd get back to me tomorrow.

    Qantas Revenue booking cancellations (under covid19)

    I have a flight in May - QF hasn't cancelled it as such. It still shows in EF with all inventory zeroed. So not bookable, but not cancelled. Sneaky.

    Amex travel credit & travel insurance

    Were all your travel credits from 2020? I used my 2019 travel credit for travel this year, and typically 'The Travel Credit cannot be carried forward to any subsequent year. ' So would it credit back and immediately expire?

    Qantas ALWAYS messes up points/SC when flying JL domestic

    Yes but depending on what First fare you pay, you'll either earn First class or Economy class credits, see the link in my previous post. It's not clear on the eTicket which one this is, so it could just be a case of you've paid only 'Discount Economy plus First Surcharge', hence the QF system...
