It really is a no brainer.
While I admit while travel was off the cards it was harder to use the travel credit but now it is probably the best value for money card going in my opinion.
If you get in quick you should also be able to take advantage of the Krisflyer 15% bonus offer...
We did a staycation at the Como Treasury Building back in August.
It has the best hard and soft product of hotels that we have stayed at in Perth (admittedly we haven't stayed at crown Towers or the Ritz) though views are not really a feature.
There is no lounge but the food and beverage...
The Doubletree Waterfront is built but isn't opened yet, so DT Northbridge is it for PER at the moment.
I don't want to get into any pro/anti border closure arguments here as it isn't the place.
This however feels like a 'walk' without any real attempt at service recovery or compensation.
I have just had an email from the Group Reservations manager to say that they will not be reopening until February 2021 after initially planning to open in November 2020.
They have offered to move our November reservation to the Doubletree in Northbridge but this is not suitable for us for this...
We are lucky enough that we have only ever flown in the F cabins of A380s which has meant we have had some fantastic memories (and all thanks to FF points).
First trip was 2016 EY AUH-LHR which was absolutely mindblowing, Seeing the giant bird as we were boarding was almost surreal. I don't...
Things are moving back to normal but not quite there yet, the hotel was much busier but that may just be because it was a weekend.
Top floors are open again and we were upgraded to a Panoramic View Executive Room (no lounge though so it is basically a high floor corner room).
The pool and gym...
Doubletree Perth Northbridge
Had a one night stay last night due to a late finish/early start for work.
Sale rate was base King room for $100 with early checkin/late check out included (which we didn't use). We were upgraded to a 'Panaramic View' room in the corner away from the lifts as per...
We have on average bought something every second month with some double ups.
Though there are optional extras that change each month they can be significantly more then the $175 starting point (sometimes less though these are more often bottles left over from previous normal monthly offers)...
We have flown MI SIN-USM in J a couple of times.
Short flights so didn't worry about the BYO entertainment but they did have some tablets you could use. The meals were pretty good.
Definitely better than QF 737 J but not as polished as SQ.
Even looking at the Y cabin I would happily fly them...
We have done it twice now.
Only real downside is that the late departure means a long wait at MLE which is pretty underwhelming.
The B787 has replaced the A330s on this route which are much better for the overnight flight.
Anything in particular you would like to know?
