    I got an Amex business card. The 150K bonus hit velocity on 19 July (noting I spent the minimum required amount in that first billing cycle). I selected 40K bonus before applying but still don’t have these. Have set a reminder to follow up on 19 Sep

    Pitstop in Narita. The Sakura lounge is big and beautiful but the food offering was not that impressive. The beer machine on the other hand!

    Business classic reward to New York return (side trip to Martha’s Vineyard)

    Whirlwind trip The Air France and prime class lounges in JFK 1 were both pretty average but we took in the best of each. Good champagne in AF lounge! Made up my own dessert with green tea and Japanese whisky as the tomato panna cotta was gross!

    Do I cancel last leg of classic reward booking?

    Check out the question marks in the conditions when I looked at the page to cancel the syd to mel leg ! I’m going to give it a go as there is no real downside now that I’m on the ground in MEL. Will see if any cash refund comes back automatically

    Do I cancel last leg of classic reward booking?

    On further reflection, I’m going to have to seek a refund of points (if it doesn’t come through automatically) on this booking as one leg I had with CX was downgraded from first to business with an aircraft change. So I’ll just ask also for the domestic taxes and charges to be refunded at the...

    Do I cancel last leg of classic reward booking?

    Even as the last leg don’t touch it? I also have a window of time once we are on the ground in MEL (hopefully land 07:55, the SYD-MEL leg is 10:30). Thoughts on trying then? 1659533719 Does anyone know how much cash refund that I would theoretically receive?

    Do I cancel last leg of classic reward booking?

    Ok, so due to a schedule change we now have a superfluous SYD-MEL flight in J on a ticket booked using reward points (see screenshot of MMB) What do I get back if I cancel it - just some taxes and charges? It looks like I might be able to do that online instead of via call centre as per...

    Little jog around town. Love doing this to explore foreign cities from a different perspective - and cover some ground quickly. I jogged the highline for a bit but was dodging too many tourists such as my good self so jumped off it fairly quickly Driving range at Chelsea pier

    Business classic reward to New York return (side trip to Martha’s Vineyard)

    They were both really good. Lots of empty seats which I guess gave the crew more time to look after us. And my wife and I had window seats one behind the other. Row 17 and 18 on the A350 have 2 windows The lounge staff were so chatty. I figure they were so bored because it was quiet! Another...

    We made it to Martha’s Vineyard. Very quaint. Beaches are not as good as Aus of course! Vineyard haven, our hotel corridor, and a picturesque house we saw on a trail walk are below
