    Jestar seat selection with family of 5

    This is probably a thread necro, but Melbourne to coughet on Jetstar 2 adults and a 6 yr old and an 8 yr old. Each person sat in a row by themselveds. I was of the opinion that minors would not be split, but this flight had multiple examples of splits like these.

    Wendouree allocations and general discussion

    Re: Wendouree 2016 allocations Wow....that escalated quickly. Btw, the hand written letter on personal stationary clearly displaying a family crest with the pages heavily perfumed is an inside joke going back to the late 90's. Never was and never has been hard to get on the list, but the...

    Wendouree allocations and general discussion

    Just write to them via snail mail and request to join the mailing list. No special handshake required. Order a spread rather than just shiraz or cabernet that invariably gets auctioned.

    ATO (tax office) payments by credit card

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. I was referring to the Qantas version of the ANZ Black card. Amex 1.5 QFFP per $1 Visa .75 QFFP per $1 Hence Amex 1.45 / 1.5 = 0.967 x 0.7 = 0.677 cents per QFFP Visa 0.42 / 0.75 = 0.56 x 0.7 = 0.392 cents per QFFP Similarly ANZ Rewards to Velocity is 2 to 1 Amex 1.45...

    With the ANZ Black which option would people choose? VISA 0.392 cents per point AMEX 0.677 cents per point I am leaning to the AMEX.

    ANZ Platinum, 50k bonus QFF points after $1500 spend, no annual fee first year

    Hi all, Long time between drinks for me, but applied for this card this week and have been approved. Just a quick question. Does a payment to the ATO qualify for the 3k spend?

    Less than favourable experience - V Australia Business class.

    Hi jad01, I havent been on the board for a while dont know what the norm/demographic of the posters are now. But quick question... Did you actually just ask "Can I have some wheatbix and milk please?" I understand there may be some mystique about business class and all that, but...

    Jetstar complain

    OP has no leg to stand on. I have written in the past that the service culture in Australia is different to some Asian culture. I dont think the OP gets that point. Information we have here: -He did not have proof of onward travel. -He did not have a valid long stay visa (apart from a 90...

    Good hotel <$130 ish with Brekkie in Hong Kong (HKG)

    Holiday Inn Causeway Bay is currently a Pointbreaks hotel. So buy 40k points that your company can reimburse and book the pointbreak rooms. I would suggest not having breakfast at the hotel but to visit the myriad of cheap options available.

    To Bali, or not to Bali

    I'll pay that one. Most often, I find a trip to Thailand or Malaysia much more cheaper than an Australian getaway. Heck, even a trip to HK and then a local tour works out better for me. :lol: I applaud you for choosing to go to someplace for the culture. Sadly, the only image I see in the...

    To Bali, or not to Bali

    Stupid question coming...but a genuine one. :mrgreen: I have never been to Bali. What is there in Bali that you cannot get in say: coughet (although it is still predominently Muslim) or any Thai beach place. Sabah or again any Malaysian/Singaporean beach place. Fiji, Vanuatu...although not...

    To Bali, or not to Bali

    my 2 cents... I have never been to Bali and sadly I think I never will. There is a slight sense of loss that a place that everyone raves about has risks beyond my threshold. Foreigners are obviously not welcome. Not by the people but by those who have their own agendas. Although there are...
