    re: The view from my "office" Views from last week's office Awesome views, great cover, cloudless skies and temperatures high enough that you could do both snow skiing and water skiing in the one run.

    I called to cancel and was offered a full fee waiver. I cancelled anyway as I am actually serious about consolidating cards, not just searching for waivers. I had been pretty consistently putting around $2k per month through the card if that serves as a reference for fee waiver eligibility.

    Etihad Lounge in Melbourne?

    There seems to be some new space up near where I think the Qantas First and Emirates lounges are, so I am not sure if they are going in there. A couple of years ago it was suggested they would be setting up in between Gates 18 and 20, but there is no obvious space there unless they created a...

    Award space on VX through VA

    Interestingly I can see my VX reservation (VA redemption) on both the old and the new site, however the old site provides better information about it. The new site layout seems limited to two sectors, so really struggles with my MEL-SYD, SYD-LAX, LAX-IAD booking. The old site layout has no...

    ATO (tax office) payments by credit card

    My NAB Velocity Premium Amex paid full points for an ATO payment in mid Feb. My statement today has confirmed this, which is good as I have some further ATO bills coming up.

    Avianca "Lifemiles" - Questions and Discussion

    re: Avianca "Life Miles" - Questions and Discussion I emailed [email protected] for a time change yesterday and got a response overnight with updated itinerary showing "confirmed" instead of "confirmed - timechange". This was much easier for me than calling LifeMiles.

    Free MEL one day Airport Parking

    It must have a single use restriction as a second booking trying to use the coupon failed. I am not sure whether this is based on credit card number or email address.
