    How many times have you had to put the same booking into credit?

    I had about $3k across a number of bookings but have managed to use most of that up - it is just this one persistent booking reference that seems cursed!

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    Because they are not selling as many seats, have lower revenue and cannot afford to add extra [staff] costs?

    How many times have you had to put the same booking into credit?

    What? Nobody can beat 4 cancelled trips? Or simply nobody cares :)

    How many times have you had to put the same booking into credit?

    With another scheduled event cancelled due to COVID restrictions (on the ACT which has not had a locally acquired infection in over a year) I, of course, had to cancel the flights I'd arranged and get a Flight Credit. This piqued my curiosity as I'd made this booking using a Flight Credit - so...

    Qantas to shut airport service desks, force customers onto self-service

    This is exactly the sort of problems we all predicted, you know, the customers who use the service regularly and know the reality of the system! Can't wait till a packed Friday afternoon in Sydney trying to get home as the thunderstorms roll in ...

    Cats and dogs may fly in Australian cabins

    I think that pets in Europe are fifth generation spoilt though - they are little precious things used to going everywhere, planes, trains, restaurants. In the US from the stories I've read - a whole different level of crazy!

    Cats and dogs may fly in Australian cabins

    Well I think we have all seen the story about the 'emotional support' peacock - Emotional support peacock denied flight by United Airlines This is where it gets really tricky if these animals are treated as having a therapeutic role and within the often vague definitions in State/Territory...

    Cats and dogs may fly in Australian cabins

    Sorry, say again - a blind person with their guide dog in the exit row? VERY happy to have them onboard, but surely not in the exit row! Unfortunately the States/Territories are broadening the definitions of 'assistance animals' so I suspect it will not be long after the CASA prohobition...

    Do I need a Status Run or will Status Extension cover it?

    Thanks! I thought so but wanted to check - would HATE to miss renewal because of 40 SCs

    Do I need a Status Run or will Status Extension cover it?

    With all the back and forth on changes to Status Support from QF I'm kinda confused and need a second (or third or fourth) pair of eyes to check my thinking. I have a 31 July 2021 status end date. Currently Platinum and with flights and bonuses showing on my account I will end the status year...

    Personal reflections a year into COVID-19: What has changed? What have you missed?

    What have you missed? - it can be anything Certainly overseas travel, I was actually in Rotterdam about to go to a conference in March 2020 when it was cancelled because of some new 'novel' virus and came home ... The ability to think and make decisions for myself (as others have commented!) A...

    Qantas closes all airport meeting rooms & some valet parking locations

    The QF meeting rooms where THE BEST! For a National organisation we used them for six board meetings a year and being airside it made such a difference not having to factor in time for attendees to have to get through the screening to catch planes. Even those who usually flew VA we forced onto...

    Qantas to shut airport service desks, force customers onto self-service

    ... until at some point we determine that there is little to be gained by the 'status' we have with QF and merely go for the cheapest seat as they are all offering an equivalent service. As I indicated in my email to QF - their staff are their competitive advantage

    Qantas to shut airport service desks, force customers onto self-service

    Yep, this stinks. Been flying out of Sydney on a Friday afternoon when the thunderstorms are rolling in one two many times to think that the app and call centre will be able to handle the issues! Have emailed QF on Friday when told of this by (very upset) lounge staff - no response of course...
