    QFF Ideas & Suggestions

    Bring back lounge access for Gold & Plat when not flying Qantas - you don't fly to all destinations which means some times we will need to fly with other airlines regardless of how loyal to QF we are. Luggage - reduction to 1 piece per pax is not good. I often have equipment that needs to be...

    When I went to coughet on holiday I just ticked the holiday box and no questions were asked at all. The immigration guy had a quick peak at the APAC card and I was on my way.

    My last stay at CP Darling Harbour was in Nov 09 and I didn't get an invite to drinks either. HI The Rocks used to have them on Wed nights but stopped them in late 08 when the manager changed, while CP Darling Harbour kept them up in 09 as I had them a few times.

    QF website- what the?

    Last week I was not able to book MEL-SYD-AKL-MEL as the multi-city option no longer allows me to enter manually, it had to be selected from the world map which would not allow domestic and international on the same search. When entering in MEL-AKL, the flight list did not give options for any...

    Retaining Platinum Status - what is the quickest/ cheapest way?

    I have a trip to Boston later this year. To take advantage of the 'instant upgrade' does that mean I should book directly with AA online in Australia for flights on QF from Melbourne to Boston and take as many hops as I can to boost my SCs? Can a travel agent access the instant upgrade via...

    Is Qantas diluting the benefits of status?

    On my last few trips to NZ a I've been lucky enough to have an empty seat next to me on the 737. Normally a few of us at the front of economy have this and all would appear to be platinum. MEL-SYD I've had the over wing window seat without the window 3 trips in a row but can never remember the...

    Business travellers forced to cheap seats

    The serviced apartment was Siri Sathorn (very near Soi Convent & Saladang BTS). I don't recall the exact amount but we paid monthly in advance and got a good deal on a large apartment which worked out to be about $80USD per room (4 years ago). We tried to get the same deal for a project last...

    Business travellers forced to cheap seats

    I travel constantly around asia and the policy is always WHY with mid priced hotels. (Crowne Plazza for me). We could fly J to USA and UK but it was at the GM's discretion and usually knocked back unless sales were doing well. A change of leadership saw lots of J travel before it was cancelled...

    Roaming vs Local Sims vs Other?

    I have heard that Vodafone will be offering a better priced roaming deal when you are on the Voda network anywhere in the world. Not sure about specifics or timings, but it's come from a UK and an NZ source confirming the same concept. Other than companies being able to make lots of profit off...
