    Travel Insurance query

    Was easier to go with 2 policies - cheaper too - age is a factor! Interesting differences re medical too - some add extra if on medication and some include anyway. All needs to be worked thru - Just because conditions controlled by prescribed medication doesn't mean accepted as covered. I was...

    Re the 10 best things about Singapore Airlines Kris Flyer

    As KF points disappear after 3 years can you keep them active by buying something via their site? Does one transaction start the 3 years again?

    What takes people from Qantas ?

    For me as the occasional o/seas traveller and a few domestic each year it is price and timing. Sadly Qantas doesn't believe South Australia warrants any o/seas service although 8 or 9 o/seas based airlines do. Codeshare availability minimal and has always been more expensive. Thus havent...

    Qantas standards slipping or just bad luck?

    Learning the hard way i guess - reckon on a 2 and half hour flight it isn't too much to expect a coffee - food we got was ok - just was poor experience overall compared to what we've had with Qantas previously.
