    Ryanair bans customers who claimed credit card refunds for flights they missed because of lockdown

    I had to cancel several flights with easyJet last year. They eventually refunded the taxes I paid, however they decided to keep the actual fare, luggage fees and seat selection costs. Dealing with their customer service crowd was an appalling experience.

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    I received QF Gold status fast track back in March. It had been years since I last flew with the airline after a number of less than satisfactory experiences including being stuck in Singapore for an extended period when management shut down the airline to punish its staff. I've decided to go...

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    I do hope so. When things return to normal and there are hundreds of extra tourists waiting near the gates the lounge will be a peaceful haven again. It really was possibly the most pleasant of all VA lounges with the great views and staff.

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    Same here. I moved over to VA when they offered a status match shortly after Joyce shut down the airline and left people like me stranded overseas with no assistance at all. Since then I have been a very happy platinum VA flyer. My recent business class flights wth QF have been mediocre at best...

    Double SCs for trans-Tasman book 10-15 May

    I booked a trip for February which is when my new flying year begins. I was given gold status until the end of January 2023 due to the Qantas status challenge. It should earn 460 status credits which gives me eleven months to earn 140 status credits to retain gold until the end of January...

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    You will attain gold when you earn the 100 status credits. That will give you gold for this current membership year. You will then be given another full year as gold. My membership year begins and ends at the end of January and shortly after earning the necessary 100 points I received an email...

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    Yep. You will be given gold status for the remainder of this membership year and for a full year after that. I'm now gold until January 2023.

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    On the actual app there's a bar code up the top. Under that is a kangaroo which draws itself then cleverly colours itself in. The background is gold, it says gold and down below is the One World blue oval. None of this is on the phone wallet version.

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    Just received my gold card and single bag tag with the 100 year logo after qualifying about 2 1/2 weeks ago. I'm also unsure about requalification requirements. Would I be required to earn 600 status credits during the gifted full membership year or during the current membership year combined...

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    Was given this recently. A sausage roll for a SYD-BNE flight departing at 1pm and a pie of some sort for a flight BNE-CNS departing at 3pm. No BNE lounge access as it was closed. I've had better.

    VA to Extend status for Some until 30th September 2022

    Just received advice from Velocity that my platinum status is extended until the end of September 2022. I completed the gold flyer challenge with QF last week and to be perfectly honest I was quite disappointed with their business class product considering it cost me $850 more than similar VA...

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    It has been a very long time since I last flew Qantas but from memory my anniversary date is the end of January. This status bump gives me gold status for the remainder of this flying year and for the year after, making it the end of January 2023. Am still evaluating whether to make QF my...

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    I flew CNS-BNE-SYD on Monday in business class which earned me 100 status credits. 24 hours after the departure of the first flight I checked the app and found this. I tried several times to obtain a digital membership card to add to my wallet without success.

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    I received a very similar email after I asked about my application. They also mentioned a phone call but I never received one. Have booked a return business class trip CNS-BNE-SYD so should hit gold on arrival in SYD. I was hoping VA management would have announced their plans for business...

    Met spend but no Velocity SC for last three minths

    Yep. Points transferred immediately every time. Just no sign of status credits since November.

    Met spend but no Velocity SC for last three minths

    I've been spending way over that amount each month. Points are always credited but for some reason no status credits have landed in my account since November 30. It looks like the only way to contact Flybuys is by phone on weekdays so I'll do that.

    Virgin Australia launches 'coronavirus status extension' plan

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Unfortunately I've had to cancel every flight I've booked over the last few months, including two just this morning.

    Met spend but no Velocity SC for last three minths

    Just wondering if anyone has received status credits from their Flybuys spending recently. The last time I received them was November last year. Points from Flybuys have been credited quickly to my Velocity account.
