    Free [Gone] 1x General Qantas Lounge Pass - Expiry 15 August 2022

    Hi CaptainCurtis, if you're still offering, I'd be a very grateful recipient. Looking to travel with family in July and currently at least one pass short for a lounge visit with them, so this would be great! Thank you.

    Travel Bank - What's the go?

    Oh dear, tread carefully... i do fear that a dentist would be more fun than the latter direction you indicate, ie. moving to QF over this. My experience of progress from them has been more painful than VA. I wouldn't give up on VA just yet coming through with what you are entitled to.

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    Confirmation for me tonight no just how bad QF is... on account of a comparison. I called another large airline in Australia about a flight cancellation at 5:15pm this evening. Call was answered immediately as the initial welcome voice recording finished. Just checked my phone then to see that...

    Scams like these

    I had one earlier in the week from a displayed mobile number. Upon answering we exchanged a few 'hello's' to begin with, as if I couldn't quite hear. The lady then kindly informed me that she was ringing to report a fault with my Telstra line. When I said that was good news, suddenly she started...

    2022 travel plans

    Sounds good! We have a family (re-booked of course!) trip planned for mid year a bit in reverse of you - a couple of weeks in YVR visiting friends, then a few weeks in MUC visiting family and departing from GVA. Will see how we go! What time of year are you heading off?

    Card Promotions 300,000 Amex MR points with Amex Platinum Charge (expires 31/8/21)

    Ah the wonders of this site - continue to provide nice surprises! I thought I'd lost out on this one - the offer disappeared after it had been appearing for a few days on my device. I cleared the browser a few times tonight and kept refreshing and voila - there it was! Submitted details for my...

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    Perhaps this explains my error up-thread about being 'allowed' when booking an Aus departure to come back through Aus and end in NZ. Is the QF system counting NZ as AUS? Annoying that they let that go through if it's not allowed (we have taken @vertrade's advice at the moment and reached out to...

    Yep (well, 132.4), but yes, no other surprises (yet!)

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    Thanks heaps for the heads up. Now some nerves have set in. I've double checked - all looks good, not sure if saying nothing is best approach or checking it out?! Will wait and see for now.

    Thanks DC3. Qantas have just agreed on Twitter, so that's good news :)

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    That error is so frustrating, all the more so because it lets you get all the way to having passenger details in etc. before failing! I battled with that one the other night, before taking out a codeshare Finnair flight that seemed to be working and swapped it to an actual Finnair flight, and it...

    Free Qantas PJ's and some slippers to give away

    I'm keen to throw my hat in the ring! Thanks for putting out there @VPS! First place we're keen to go is Bavaria in Germany! A lovely place, particularly when family are there to visit ;)

    Rex to fly between Australian capital cities

    I can confirm the money has now come in (minus card fee perhaps of $1-2?) A fairly smooth process.

    Rex to fly between Australian capital cities

    I had a ticket booked (that I had intended to use :)) - it is for late July and COVID interruptions in Sydney make it look less likely each day, so I clicked on the portal a couple of days back and requested a refund. Just needed to put in all the booking details etc. I await the money 'landing'?!

    How do Hilton treat you as an Elite?

    Ah DC3, glad someone could enjoy it :) We sadly postponed our trip in the end - 3rd time since July last year, so we were one of those cancellations you mention. We had a cracking deal for interconnecting rooms on a high level. I think it will be hard to get again - but that won't stop me...

    Australian state border restrictions

    Which is a bit of a worry with our Monday departure from ACT to QLD!?! Could it be the third time this trip has been postponed :(

    Rex launches Sydney-Canberra Saab 340 flights

    Well that's interesting... my estimation figures from a quick scan of the plane weren't too bad :) I was working off 'about 20' being on board, whereas initially around 30. Interesting about the back too - this one did have a middle seat. I remember thinking it looked like the back row of a bus...

    Rex launches Sydney-Canberra Saab 340 flights

    Some aborted their trip altogether (didn't help that news was filtering through about new COVID cases in Sydney) and some went to book on alternate airlines (well Qantas I guess). They were the ones I knew about. Car/bus certainly would have been quicker in the end from original airport check-in...

    Rex launches Sydney-Canberra Saab 340 flights

    Not a definite stat, but I reckon about 85% full on Rex's 6:30am CBR-SYD service this morning. That was until they had a flat battery and couldn't start the plane! Just over an hour later we re-boarded and departed at perhaps about 65% capacity!! Was happy with the service on board but some room...
