    Qantas 747 joy flight out of Canberra

    I watched from the side of Lake Burley Griffin and was happy it is such a beautiful clear sunny day. Stunning and emotional. Damn I wish I had been able to get a ticket!

    Have you had to change/cancel travel due to COVID-19 (involuntarily or voluntarily)?

    Update on the insurance issue, given everything is now off the table I contacted the insurer about a cancellation. After being questioned about WHY I want to cancel our policy and being asked multiple times if it is because of the Covid19, I was advised that they have to refer it to the team...

    Have you had to change/cancel travel due to COVID-19 (involuntarily or voluntarily)?

    Planned trip to London and Lake Garda in Northern Italy and Singapore is looking shaky. Italy is off the table and we are trying to get a refund from the hotel as they can't open (only open April to October). While the London leg looks OK the family member we are visiting is elderly so there are...

    QF Double Status Credit Promos - I am not 100% sure I follow the logic anymore...

    I see your point but isn't this a problem caused by Qantas? Domestic Qantas Club lounges are crowded but that is a problem caused by more than just DSCs. Qantas are more than happy to sell membership to any punter (without status) who has the $$. Paying for lounge access is creating busier...

    QF Double Status Credit Promos - I am not 100% sure I follow the logic anymore...

    Do DSCs really cause over crowding? I would have thought sale fares and double points offers are more likely to create crowds.

    QF Double Status Credit Promos - I am not 100% sure I follow the logic anymore...

    No DSC means that for domestic travel, I will look for the cheapest airfare. Probably Virgin looking purely at the prices. Overseas travel will be about price and benefit not retaining my QF status. Bye Qantas.

    When is next anticipated double SC promotion?

    Thats what I'm hoping the sale fares are not so great from Canberra - basically much the sale as fares at other times - so I'd rather hang for DSC!

    When is next anticipated double SC promotion?

    @Mattg had some interesting thoughts on this on the latest AFF on Air podcast. Check it out. I can't find the podcast referring to double SC promotions. Can I ask which date was the podcast?

    Worst in-flight meal you've received?

    These comments remind me that it is always a good idea to eat in the Lounge before departure - although I've has some very ordinary lounge meals as well - and take snacks if you can!

    Best use of Qantas points for non-flight redemption

    I fully understand that using points for international J travel but I also understand that some people will never have enough points to travel, nor the time or $$ needed. A cheap toaster - that they need now - may be a good alternative. Everyones circumstances are different, please keep that...
