    Why I hidden city ticket

    On a number of occasions I've used the controversial practice of "hidden city ticketing". There is only one reason to do this and it is saving big wads of cash. To highlight an example - I want to take a one way J fare from a major US city to a well known South American city using one of the...

    In the next 12 months I've got a few F/J flights coming up and looking though the terms and conditions on a couple of policies it appeared that in the event of say a missed connection or illness all of them replaced the lost flights with economy.

    Is this a good use of 175K points

    Over time i've managed to acquire 175K points with QF but as many of my flights are QF charter flights I have very few SC, only 100. That is likely to change in the new year so I should accrue around 500SC/year through work alone and I'd like to use an upcoming leisure trip to kick that along a...
