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

    Finnair usually has only been releasing their award seats for long haul J to partner airlines 2 months in advance. I’ve noticed in the last day or two that they’ve opened up awards on several routes I’ve been looking at for June (e.g HEL-NRT), (HEL-SIN) with four seats available. It doesn’t seem...

    Redemption booking FROM Doha on Qantas FF points

    I've definitely seen QR availability similarly on the Qantas website, the part I've personally never seen yet is anything to or from Australia. For example LHR-DOH-NRT or LHR-DOH-SIN seems to bring up availability. But nothing on LHR-DOH-MEL. That's the case even when sometimes BA or AA's search...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    I also noticed that dates in June (at least) are available in J for LHR-MEL, currently listed as transiting in Perth are suddenly available when they weren’t just this morning. So it seems to go beyond just what was announced.

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

    Hi Ozflier, good luck with organising your trip. I know it does take a lot of planning and research. I have booked a 318k award focused on Europe for April too, so I can relate when it comes to the Europe hub situation. Working with Madrid, Helsinki or London, which are all relatively...

    Qantas Club Access - JL Flight

    No, unfortunately. It would need to have been purchased with a Qantas flight number as a codeshare for that. You can’t access the Qantas lounge using your membership if you’re flying with a JL flight number.

    Amex "I'm going to cancel my card" - bonus points given thread.

    Apologies if this has been asked before, but if you cancel the card and reinstate during the same call, do you have to then wait for a new card to be sent out? Or can they reinstate it with the same cards and card numbers? I feel I’m not likely to get lucky with a retention offer and am trying...

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

    I don't know for sure but was also told the same thing last time I tried to get ticketing done on a weekend.

    50 SC for signing up to Qantas Health Insurance

    That is a good surprise! The same thing just happened to me but over 6k points arrived. I did used to have something like that amount in 'locked' points, but thought they would have been forgotten about by now. I have used the app since 2015 but only now joined an insurance product.

    Using KF points for VA domestic redemption

    Thank you oliver_adl, that’s a good warning and would have been stressful for your girlfriend! In the end I called SQ and asked them if there was a separate Virgin booking reference number which they were able to give me without issue (it was different to the VA reference). When I used that...

    Using KF points for VA domestic redemption

    Has anyone made a redemption on VA through Krisflyer as a saver award recently? Does it still work OK? I have made a reservation today and been given a ticket number by SQ, but the VA website says the booking is ‘pending’ when I use the PNR given by the SQ website.

    I got 1,000 points for a $100 Westfield this morning in Melbourne. No bonus points showed up on the screen but it did on the receipt. Not sure why only 1,000 - makes it not worth it.

    Hilton Points to expire.....

    They shouldn’t expire this calendar year, according to Hilton and their COVID-19 response, where they say all expiry is paused until 31 December 2020: Statement From Hilton: Coronavirus | Hilton Global Hospitality I think buying points makes the most sense, or maybe transferring a small amount...

    Krisflyer miles refunds - Taking forever! Anyone else with this problem?

    I'm not sure how, but I just cancelled a redemption booking due to fly in September, through the app. Singapore Airlines seems to have extended their waiver on award reinstatement fees until September. The points came back straight away. I was also advised that the taxes had been refunded and...

    Credits or refunds on unused travel insurance

    In case it’s of use to anyone else, I got a full refund from Insure4less for a medical only policy due to start later this year. They’re the same group as TravelInsuranz and the underwriter is Berkshire Hathaway. Their initial answer was that they would only put it on hold for a later date, but...

    Krisflyer miles refunds - Taking forever! Anyone else with this problem?

    That’s a great result! October is past their current published waiver date though, isn’t it? How did you get them to do that? Or did you have to pay a fee?
