    Qantas Switch ?

    thanks V8. main thing is using my points, as i am struggling a bit to use my AA points from AU. as has been pointed out, QF may/do find award flights not publicly available for Platinum and PLat1 and the ability to upgrade with points would be a definite advantage. I believe i would do enough...

    Qantas Switch ?

    Sorry and thanks for the input. I did go AWOL ! few hours after my initial post i ruptured my Achilles. Good news is i will be much more responsive to this thread as i am grounded for at least 4 weeks :-) So on the 2MM, assume you mean million miller balance ? I am at 2.65M, so lifetime...

    Qantas Switch ?

    Wondering if the combined wisdom of the forum can help me figure out whether moving to QFF is good idea. I've been with AA for close to 10 yrs and have lifetime gold status. I'm based in Melbourne and do 8 - 10 long haul trips per year. Mainly to Singapore, Tokyo and Shanghai/HK. I also do a...

On AA (i logged in and i'm exec plat) there used to be plenty of availability (outside peak) for economy, but now all i'm seeing is J class. If i log into QF, there's the usual amount of economy seats......pretty much...

    Confirmed - AAdvantage now enforcing 4 segment rule for status

    i have recently qualified for EP with over 100k qualifying points but have been told by AA customer service that i must fly 4 AA or US airways segments before they will bump me from platinum to exec plat. anyone seen this before ? i know it's always been in the T&C's but in 10 years this is the...

    should I stay (with AA) or go (to SG)

    Hi, wondering if i can tap the wisdom of this forum. I recently moved to Sing from HK and also just hit 2million lifetime miles with AA. Being in Singapore i think it makes sense to move to SQ and get some status with a Star Alliance carrier. But AA redemption is by far better than most and can...

    Finnair RTW

    Hi all, was thinking of taking advantage of the finnair rtw bus class deal for an upcoming trip to HKG and NYC. $6800 + taxes is a pretty sweet deal. My original idea was to spend a weekend with friends in HKG then on to NYC for a weeks work. Having just made the switch to AA after QF...

    Following is an email i sent to customer care 2 months ago....as yet no reply. This is the final straw....cya qantas. I arrived into NYC last night after a very unpleasant flight on QF 11 and QF3047, all due to my seating preferences being ignored yet again. I don't expect much from the FF...
