    QF No Longer Printing FF Number on Boarding Passes

    For those of us who prefer the printed boarding pass I noticed this week that QF are no longer printing the FF number on the boarding pass. Instead of QFxx_xx_x it simply displays QF. I presume this is to get around any privacy issues and potential risks to compromising FF accounts...

    No More International Express at SYD International

    Landed this morning (Friday 12/12) off QF12 to find that Customs Clearance at YSSY International was "enhanced" a couple of days back and divided into Nothing to Declare (Green) and Declare (Red) . Another enhancement was that Express Arrivals has been done away with and everyone including crew...
