    Changing one part of a return trip?

    I've got an upcoming trip booked and I want to push the return flight back by one day. However I've tried to change the return flight and can only find options to change both the outbound and return flights simultaneously. I'd like to avoid that because the outbound flight has jumped by $150...

    PER-SYD Upgrade waitlist?

    I'm flying PER-SYD on the a330 in 2 weeks. Just put in a points upgrade request and got waitlisted. I checked the seating availability on BCD Travel and there's a tonne of availability. What are the odds of getting upgraded if I'm only VA Gold? Also I notice that the waitlisted people get...

    Status Credits on Delta Comfort+

    I've asked this question in the comments of a previous thread, but I'm going to ask again in a separate thread after finding more information. How do paid comfort+ upgrades get credited in terms of points+status? Going to the end of the booking process and reading the T&Cs I find > "Upgraded...

    Shanghai with Virgin

    I'm travelling to Shanghai soon and am having difficulty booking flights. I'll be in the US first so I'm flying Delta to the US and then again from the US to Shanghai. I want to fly Hong Kong Airways to HKG and then Virgin back to Sydney. My issue is that I can't seem to book a one-way PVG-SYD...

    Status credits on flights booked via government agencies

    I have some upcoming travel that I can book through either my employer or a government agency. I know that any public servants can't collect points, nor can they use them to upgrade or anything, but they are allowed to collect status credits - Frequently Asked Questions - Airlines and Travel...

    Are free upgrades a thing of the past?

    I'm flying Etihad economy tonight out of SYD and when I checked in there was barely any line. I'm VA gold so I got to check in at the business counter (3 open counters with no passengers at them) and got chatting to the bloke at the desk. He mentioned that first class is empty and business is...

    Seat Selection on Etihad?

    I'm Velocity gold and flew Etihad in April and was able to select my seats in advance with no problems. I've just booked another flight for October and can't select seats. Looking at the listed benefits for gold members flying Etihad no longer shows advanced seat selection as a perk. Anyone...

    Not ready to redeem yet?

    Over the past 3 days I've had 3 emails from Virgin titled "not ready to redeem yet?" with an option to set a reminder to redeem and an ad showing what points can be redeemed for. I have zero desire to redeem anything in the near future and these emails do nothing other than piss me off. Has...

    PER-SYD in J

    I'll be flying SYD-KTA in October, and I'm hoping to fly business on the return PER-SYD leg using points. If I've done me reading correctly, upgrading from discount economy is 30,000 points, whereas using points to book a one way PER-SYD ticket is only 35500 points + $19.95. On the surface it...

    Family pooling

    I live at home with my parents and sister. I fly a moderate amount, and they all fly maybe once a year at most. In an ideal world I'd have family pooling set up so all their status credits get sent to me (they have no real need for them), but obviously you can only set it up with one adult...

    Upgrading to Gold mid-trip

    Hi, I'll be taking a series of flights around the world early next year. I'll be flying SYD-LA in premium economy and then doing a series of US domestic flights with Delta, also in premium economy. Those flights should be enough to push me over 500 status credits and upgrade to gold. However...
