    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.

    Amex Plat Charge - "due" date

    I see some threads from around 8 years ago on this topic, but nothing recent. Thinking of applying for the plat charge card and was wondering if the pay by next statement date rule still applies? Also what's the general time frame provided for the printed due date on each monthly statement? 2 weeks?

    Received a letter today in regards to the points earn on my American Express Ultimate card. Looks like points earn rates are going back to what they were prior to the 3/2/1/0.5 scheme. Fairly blanket 1.5/$1 from June 2017 except on government bodies. Seems like a positive change to me...

    Booked on a domestic flight tomorrow, which was upgraded to Business (U) class using points. As I generally do, I've been monitoring the seat map from T-80 and have found that it has not opened up any additional seats for selection. I can select only the last row of Business, even at T-24...

    Disappointing WP experience at First Counter/Lounge regarding baggage limits

    My mum who has been WP for over 10 years recently booked a flight to Taiwan on the Qantas website. The routing was SYD to HKG on QF and then HKG to TPE on CX.
