    US Credit Card - useful for Australians?

    Hi, I am currently spending some time in America. So far, I have made all my purchases with a foreign CC, but was thinking if it may be worth applying for an American credit card. Easiest way would be setting up a bank account, which would be w/o monthly fee as long as I keep the balance above...

    Onboard downgrade?!

    Hi, on a not-so-recent-anymore SYD-NRT flight (non-refurbished 747) I was sitting as Y passenger on one of the Y+ seats. Before departure a FA was talking to a lady a couple of rows away from me (unfortunately I could not hear anything). Afterwards she stood up and walked to the back, so clearly...

    BA flight: Using QF status benefits, while crediting miles to AA

    Hi, I am gonna take an BA flight (discount Y) soon and as the milage earn rate with QF is only 0.25 while 1.00 with AA, I was thinking of crediting my miles to AA instead (not too interested in these status credits).

    Seat selection on AA flight sold as codeshare

    Because the search function didnt show me any results, I thought I post a tip on how to pre-select seats on AA that are sold as codeshares (e.g. IB, AY). If you log-in on the AA website with your Sabre PNR you will have NO button to preselect a seat (I think BA codeshares are the only...

    Qantas: First Class Hosts when flying into SYD

    Hi, I have booked a flight CBR-SYD-DXB with the latter leg in F. As this is my first time travelling F with Qantas, I was wondering if Qantas also picks you up at the gate after the domestic CBR-SYD flight or if this service is only available at the int. terminal curb? Cheers Dan

    Hi, I just booked a flight to Tokyo (QF21/22) in September, which is operated with 747-400 planes. However, QF seems to have 4 different versions of this model with slightly different seat maps. I was now surprised to see a different seat selection seat map for QF21 and 22. Does the booking...
