    Qantas Wine Removed From Points Club? [no]

    Forgive me if this isn't new information but I haven't been able to find any other discussion of this. I was just looking at the points club benefits page and it appears all reference to Qantas Wine has ben removed. No $50 birthday voucher, no "complimentary" Qantas Wine Premium membership. Yes...

    QF75/QF76 to Vancouver Going Year-Round?

    Yes last thursday it appears almost the whole schedule had business class award availability sadly by Saturday when I was ready to book it was all gone. I don't think it sold out, from my research it looks like QF implemented a hard cut off at the end of Feb, which is a shame because the flights...

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    If its any help, I had to change my a BA flight on my booking and the person on the phone mentioned BA tickets require a reissue. It didn't really mean anything to me or effect anything I was doing as my trip hasn't started but they did mention it to me. Not sure about other airlines though, or...

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    So I just called and I'm pretty sure I'm on the phone to Auckland? (They have a kiwi accent) and while going through trying to change my booking for whatever reason they can't see the same availability as I can on the website. So they said they should be able to cancel and return the points to...

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    So due to recent flight and plan changes I need to change every single flight on my OWA. Is it wise to just cancel the booking in its entirety and start again? Or am I better off calling the GCC and changing all the flights over the phone? Personally I'd rather make my booking online as its...

    Bonus 1,000 Qantas points, 15 status credits or $20 flight voucher if fully vaccinated against COVID-19

    After trying to find the answer in this thread I'm still confused, do the SC from this promotion count towards the SC rollover (provided didn't hit the cap)?

    Are you Going to use the COVIDsafe App?

    Oh, I travel on Hillsbus and they have QR codes at every seat and ask to check in. Strangely though this is only on about 2/3 of the buses I go on. Trains on the other hand yes no QR code check in.

    How do Hilton treat you as an Elite?

    Wow, I'm sorry to hear you had such a poor experience and hope this experience isn't permanent. HH Queenstown has been my favourite ever HH property. I've always received 10/10 service here, not to mention the actual property is incredible too. Its sad they enforce the coffee tax and breakfast...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    So I have some interesting news. In 2020 I was planning on going on overseas exchange with uni, this obviously didn't go ahead due to covid. Anyway I received an email this week letting me know the University has had confirmation from DFAT (yes DFAT, must be because they have a hand in the...

    Qantas Business Rewards Double Status Credits (? Targeted)

    Yeah well for me the reason is because I've had almost 0 Qantas flights since joining QBR. My first ever Qantas flight was this year and it was booked via amex travel so I didn't bother trying to work out how to add the ABN.

    Qantas Business Rewards Double Status Credits (? Targeted)

    Received the DSC offer, no recent QBR activity. I've actually never taken a QBR flight in my life, just setup the account when it launched for some offer at the time. I used the recent gold challenge/ status match offer which has me gold until Jan 2023 and my review date is Jan 2022. So unless...

    No More Spirits (in J) Masquerading as COVID?

    A recent data point, I flew SYD <>OOL last week in J both flights no spirits. I flew J SYD<>MEL with VA week before and spirits on both flights. I find it pretty ridiculous that QF J is almost always priced higher than VA and they promote themselves as the "premium airline" but spirits isn't...

    Use Qantas points to book ski lift passes in NZ

    Not to mention its only for flights to CHC, when 2 out of 3 ski resorts on the lift pass are in Queenstown and only approx. 30 min away from ZQN airport where Mt Hutt is 1.5 hours from CHC. So to get an real value out of this deal you need to get to Queenstown anyway. This would make way more...

    Ok I am currently in the GC Qantas club conducting research. My research has consisted of 4 beverages so far and no mention of a drink limit. It is a total zoo in here though.

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Sadly this is very true. When I talk to other people in day to day life, they say oh life is back to normal now who cares about international travel (the 1 annual family trip type). When I think, such selfish thinking, just because they can miss a couple of years of annual family trips. There...

    Qantas lounge Gold Coast - drink limit

    My view on the list order should be QP Members (yes, they paid for it), then Platinum (Emerald), Gold (Sapphire), Silver (Ruby), everyone else. Lucky I don't make the rules I haha.
