    Commonwealth Diamond

    I have just read the terms & conditions and the disturbing thing is I cannot find what the CONVERSION rate is (with my Platinum, 3 CBA Rewards points transfers as 1.5 QF points). If the conversion rate is unchanged the Diamond card/s is a very disappointing product.

    Travel Insurance that covers your FF points.

    Thanks for the advice JohnK. I have a WestPac Amex/Visa Platinum card/s and also CBA Amex/M'card Platinum. I switch between using cards to direct points into either QF or SQ whichever needs the top up more. That means I sometimes find myself redeeming a QF longhaul upgrade but paying for the...

    Travel Insurance that covers your FF points.

    I have managed to find an Australian travel insurance policy that covers flights booked using miles/points against cancellation for reasons of illness etc. They will refund you the value of your otherwise wasted points in this event (not sure exactly how though) :confused: I'm interested...

    Famous people met/seen while flying v2

    Big Max Walker accompanied a group of us SYD-AKL-EZE-GIG-MCO about 20 yrs ago (back when planes were all silver & shiny :eek: ). For some reason we needed his exceptional motivational skills on that trip.

    Should there be a dress code when flying

    I couldn't agree more. Standards are important and should not be relaxed less the rot begins to set in. However, this requirement may be relaxed when applying for membership of the Mile High Club :shock:

    Which Flights Around Asia & A380

    Thanks for the input simongr. I have been stunned by the detail of other TR's I have read on this (& other) forum/s which can include menu details & photo's of the carpet! I must admit that they have all been a great read and I have waisted :confused: many hours in concentrated fascination...

    Are you flying with me on the A380?

    thanks trooper, it seems there are quite a few of us "nutters" roaming the world with "virtual pets". it's only the very brave like us who will reveal themselves though! I have to admit to being a TR virgin so don't expect anything too eloquent. I do plan to photograph & video every inch of...

    Are you flying with me on the A380?

    A very relevant question as it turns out Bundy Bear. I emailed auctionwire after winning the item asking how to pay the balance. They advised "editing" the amount payable when paying thru PayPal to reflect the previously paid USD$1,000.00 so as to only pay the balance. One problem. As the...

    Thanks Evan, Send me a pic of the monkey and ColinP's tiger will have a new friend (see post above) :D . To get back on topic, I'm compiling a list at iangoodwin.com of SQTalkers/AFF'ers/FlyerTalkers who will be on the inaugural. The object is for us all to meet up onboard so if there are...

    Bid for seats on the A380 inaugural - on ebay!

    Tax wise, here's the wording of the FAQ... 1.2.13 Will I get a tax rebate since the money goes to charity? The successful bidder will not receive a tax rebate through this charity auction because Singapore Airlines is selling a ticket and a service to the successful bidder. The transaction...

    A380 when do flights commence for general public

    Thanks Kate. Not sure the raffle concept would get off the ground. Having just reviewed the posts on this topic the prizes at this stage would seem to total an arm & a leg (donated by myself) & one testicl_ of a matching set being offered by Nathan75. Working on a hunch that Nathan75 might...
