    Chairman’s lounge membership reviews

    If only to have been in a such a position to receive this letter in the first place, all good things come to an end. People of "influence" can buy a business or first class ticket like the rest of us.

    Expedia vs Qantas - $1000 price difference

    Good result. With travel unknowns for now and into 2022 I would have booked QF direct even if more expensive. QF have honoured their refund policy on around 10 flights for me in the previous 12 months without question. Expedia have been in the news in various places for slow and no refunds...
