    One way Tokyo to SYD - any ideas on the best way to do this via VA or partners ?

    This is where a balance of Avianca Lifemiles (has) come in extremely handy. There's an award seat available on All Nippon Airways flight NH879 on 24 Oct 2019 for the direct flight from Haneda to Sydney for 20,000 Lifemiles + USD$54.79 in fees / taxes. It's highly likely that there will be...

    Hilton Honors Macquarie Platinum Card Discontinued

    I've never been fee free and paid the annual fee last June 2018. There is a silver lining - we refinanced our home loan with Macquarie late last year and after receiving the new card, being transferred 4 times on a call last week (Mortgage Solutions were the team to help) we've had the fee...

    Virgin Lounge Food

    I just did SYD MEL HBA return this week and pretty much identical scrambled eggs and chipolatas for breakfast in Sydney on the way down and chicken rice for lunch in Melbourne on the way back.

    Just got the "Important changes to your Hilton Honors Macquarie Platinum Credit Card" as well. Like others have noted, diamond status will be extended to 31 March 2021. We refinanced our mortgage with Macquarie late last year, so only other benefit for us is saving the $249 annual fee on the...

    Incorrect SCs posted for domestic J sector on international itinerary?
