    LAX T2 to TBIT transfer time

    Going to try something different. Flying into LAX on VX, so that's domestic ;) 3 hours prior to next departure.. HLO, will have to check in a TBIT. Would anyone feel that it is an insufficient time? The earlier flight is 2 hours earlier, so a bit too much waiting landside for me. Obviously...

    Micro alliance awards (think QF/AA zone 1)

    With all the RTW talk, has anyone ever tried/considered getting an oneworld alliance award on the opposite end, the shortest zone (1200 miles on QF, 1500 miles on AA) and try to get the maximum segments while keeping within the rules? Thought it would be a cool way to burn a small 30000 points...

    SYD-SIN boxing day

    Just wondering what might be the best choice, or rather your preference? 2 WP's, flying to SIN. It's a day flight, happy to slum it in Y for a few hours, but booking semi-flexis. Front row on QF5 or front/exit row on BA16? Not much difference between BA/QF 744 in Y from memory? Could...

    TG Domestic... A320 / 747 / A300

    Going to book a J domestic flight on Thai and there's an assortment of aircraft to choose from. A320/321 is out, they're boring. B747 surely by far the best option, no doubt an older config but most comfy. A300 since I'm 'young' I haven't seen one of these. I know it's going to be...

    Improvising Trip (Report) AUS-SIN-???-HKG-AUS

    Since I'm developing a bad habit of not actually finishing reports I start, I thought may as well make it up as I go this time. So sitting in SYD Flounge atm, typing furiously! Background... 11 months ago QF were giving 10 points / $ for gift vouchers so I bought a few. 10 months ago...

    Qantas.com script - remove JQ flights & other nuisances

    So a while ago I hacked together script to remove all the 'value added' offers from the bookings page and also hide Jetstar flights in the booking engine. It uses the GreaseMonkey Firefox extension. It has been slapped together but would it interest people? If there was enough interest I could...

    WOW Select Trolley Run

    The adage is make hay while the sun shines… so when you get an offer from EDR that is half decent go for it. Hopefully this will give everyone a bit of empowerment to do so next time you get such an offer. Let me call this a mini trolley run, mini because in hindsight it could of gone much...

    Going oneworld (Qantas, BA, Finnair, Air Berlin, Royal Jordanian, Cathay) in Y/J/F

    Aka, the long way to London and back or how to retain WP in a few weeks or solving QF problems + the meaning of life. Having finished one large trip, I'm going to give some sort of TR on half of oneworld. I could put it into several smaller TR's but I think there is some flow to the whole...

    One off Singapore Y flights to credit somewhere

    Have a friend flying some 10,000 miles on SQ in full Y next week. They're not going to get anything from *A status so Aegean etc. no good, just need the best for earn/burn. I'm thinking US or UA and then buy points for a long haul award, otherwise OZ or SQ more closer to home. Was even thinking...

    Some help for a RJ/CX booking - how to book!

    Well I've tried my hardest, and have really reached a dead end. Basically we want to fly in C bucket (business) from VIE-HKG. Never that simple however... Looking a VIE-AMM RJ128 (runs all but tues & sat) then a stopover. Now the hard bit. RJ flies a 333 AMM-BKK daily. From there 3x a week...

    Auckland QF premium check-in

    A question that has bothered me for a little while. Since I'm pretty new to the flying thing, most of you will probably know this one. In AKL QF have the regular check-in counters, Y, QP & J. Adjacent they have a separate check-in section, glass doors, front counter & seating. I'm taking an...

    Transiting in Melbourne.... from MEB to MEL

    In 2 & half weeks I begin a month on and off planes, effectively a status run! On my first day I have an odd transit. I'm arriving at MEB (ie. Essendon Airport) leaving myself 90 minutes to make it up the Tulla freeway and board the my QF flight. I think & hope that will be enough time. I'm...

    Brisbane International Business Lounge & QF20

    QF websites says BNE int lounge opens 90 mins before first departure... of the few international flights they do have on QF, once a week QF20 from Manila stops over around 3:40am, leaving around 5 - the next regular flights departing are hours later. So does the lounge open around 3:30 as...

    QantasLink QLD milk run flight change

    There's a few old threads on the 'milk run' in QLD but I didn't feel completely satisfied so here's my dilemma. During the QFLink sale a few months ago I managed to put together an itinerary BNE-ROK-MKY-TSV-CNS-TSV-MKY-ROK-GLT-BNE nearly all ticketed separately (only the final 2 sectors came...

    New Member Bonuses

    Having signed up a few people to QFF through the Everyday rewards scheme I've noted there's a few targeted promotions to get people using the program. There has been a double points promotion running for a member's first flight. A friend got this after claiming a flight they flew before the...

    JetSaver becomes JetFlex in QF multi-city

    Hello all. An interesting one that maybe somebody can shed some light on. I frequently fly BNE-ADL on QF, often via MEL/SYD as the routing rules allow. Recently I was playing with the multi-trip tool and selected a JQ flight accidentally as one of the two segments with odd results...
