    Frequent flying as a consultant

    I've been thinking about getting a job with one of the big consultancy firms and keen to learn about anyone's experiences with them especially as it relates to travel. Were you (or someone you know) travelling to a client for 4 days and doing 1 day in the office for weeks on end? Was it a mix...

    LAX - getting TAP card for public transport?

    Seeking the assistance of those familiar with Los Angeles. I'll be arriving at LAX soon and will need to use public transport, a combination of buses and trains, to get around to the usual touristy destinations. I've read that the TAP card is what I need but it seems to be difficult to get one...

    Connecting time SEA-YYC

    I'm pretty sure I'm in trouble here but will seek confirmation from the board. In June I have booked ORD-LAX-SEA on AA, arriving at SEA at 13:51. Then on a separate ticket I booked SEA-YYC on DL, departing SEA at 15:00. I thought this was just enough time to connect at SEA but I've received an...

    ITA Matrix & AA.com - trying to maximise SCs, am I doing it wrong?

    OK, so in my other thread I mentioned a North American trip and Instant Upgrades to maximise QF SCs. I've looked at the YUPP research and booking thread and have tried to find first-class fares on ITA Matrix. For instance I want to get from NYC to ORD and decide to add a CLT stopover in between...

    Suggestions for SYD hotel with a high view

    I am taking some people to Sydney soon (not during Vivid) who have requested a stay at a hotel who can provide a room on a high floor so that we can have a good view. By this of course I mean an affordable room :) as there'd be presidential suites and the like on the top floors but that would be...

    VA status run by end of Aug 2013

    Since it's looking increasingly like VA won't offer an easy way to comped status this time around for the status-matchers like myself, I'm looking at doing some status runs to get me back to platinum. Leaving aside the question of sensibility of retaining plat, what's the cheapest way for me to...

    QF F lounge pass to give away

    I needed to take an extra person into the QF First lounge recently and resorted to buying from eBay :oops: one of the passes given to SG members during the grounding. But when we rocked up at the lounge, the agent let me take two guests in :D and said to keep the pass for use on a different time...

    QF F lounge SYD access

    A question for the frequent Floungers! The first and so far only time I've been to the First Lounge at SYD, upon passing through the sliding doors there was a person at what looked like a movable counter. We showed him our boarding passes and WP card and we were in. We walked past the forest...
