    How do Hilton treat you as an Elite?

    Currently at the Hilton at Munich airport. I am Honours Diamond. They upgraded me to a suite, ensured I knew about the free breakfast and free WiFi. As the lounge is closed for a refurbishment, they advised the entire mini bar in the room is available free of charge. They asked if I was leaving...

    Website and SEO development

    Lots of crooks in the web space. Start with documenting exactly what you want. Then decide what you are prepared to invest. Next invite submissions but only from people prepared to meet you.

    Sleeping on planes......

    I do 2 x Advil PM and a melatonin and get 7 hours every long haul. Being in J or F helps.

    P1 Fail

    I don't expect anything extra as WP1 except help when things go wrong. Upgrades are terrific but not expected. I book 50% dom as J and all international in J. I don't hold it against Qantas if I miss an upgrade.

    QF9 in First

    I have done it twice in the last three months. In F. While I settle in for a longer 4 - 7 hrs on the longer sector each way, if I am tired I grab a couple of hours on the shorter sector. I am fortunate to not experience jet lag. I use Melatonin to settle me in when I land the first night,

    Just back from a week in the US. LAX-DFW in First, Ms Shirley MacLaine was in the seat in front of me. Then, DFW-LGA she was two rows in front. And, there she was again at the Hilton on 6th Avenue. On the return, at LGA waiting in the Admirals Club for LGA-CLT, Tom Hanks was chilling between...

    How do Hilton treat you as an Elite?

    I'm Diamond Hhonors and rate Hilton ADL as the worst for status value. Next is PER and BNE. SYD is a stand out. AKL is average. In HKG the Conrad is average as their Midtown property in NYC. Consistency, or lack thereof, is the issue.

    Advice switching loyalty from VA to QF

    Good question SuzieQ68. I get to WP1 within three months of the start of a new year and QP with VA in the same time. No more airlines here to spread the love with. I asked the question if there were options for other business wide benefits.
