    Alternative option to Booking if "oneworld" Award not useful?

    Done. Cancelled the American airlines flight and they said I would get a full refund because its within 24 hours of booking. Booked the business on Etihad with a 20 hour stopover in Abu Dhabi. I think i need a transit visa to leave the airport and I read I might need a PCR tests for visiting...

    Alternative option to Booking if "oneworld" Award not useful?

    Yeah defo considering cancelling it, have 24 hours to cancel from booking for a refund so I have about 5 hours left to cancel. The alterative option involves a 20 hour wait in abu dhabi which might not be fun but they have a lounge and if I could leave the airport easily enough it wouldn't be...

    Ive actually found another option now flying with Etihad Sydney-abu-dhabi-dublin. It has a 20 hour connection. I was wondering am I able to easily leave the abu dhabi airport and re-enter? This option might actually be better at Etihad has a much superior business class offering and I would...

    Thanks for the most recent replies guys. I actually went ahead and paid for a revenue business class fare directly with American Airlines on 3rd July flying Syd-Dallas-Dublin. It was not cheap but at least it takes a way the issue I was facing and its business albeit not top of the line...

    The other concern as well is even if I I do take the 6am flight I still run the risk of luggage being misplaced in Melbourne airport, as it will be sitting there for 14 hours before next flight takes off.

    Just going back to this original comment. Lets say for example I do make the 90 min connection in Melbourne but my bags don't. Will the luggage not just get sent on one of the next flights and delivered to me at my final destination?

    Hi I booked it online as one single flight booking. Does that mean I could have problems replacing the first flight between Sydney and Melbourne?

    If I did go down on the 6am flight would there be anything stopping me leaving the airport, and going into Melbourne and then coming back later for the flight?

    Thanks for your responses. If I find an earlier reward flight are you suggesting that I replace the existing reward flight to Melbourne with it? There is an earlier rewards flightgoing at 6am that morning so I would have a full day in Melbourne. Is it possible to replace the existing rewards...

    Hi Guys, I have an economy rewards booking as per the below screenshot. This was the one of the only rewards flights I could find at short notice after my Business reward flight was cancelled recently (another story). I have checked the first flight number QF489 Syd-Melb on flightradar24 -...

    Thanks for the replies. Ended up charging us 10% of the taxes we paid on the business rewards flight so ended up being around $70 or so.

They are saying it will cost $650 i.e. 10% of a business class ticket. I have never heard this before? Does anyone have...

    Hi does anyone know if you reserve one of the Qatar seats with a bassinet in front are you automatically entitled to that bassinet or do you still need to ring up and book that separately? cheers
