    SYD International Bag Drop

    Hi Can anyone tell me if its possible to drop bags after self check in the night before your flight. We are planning to stay in the airport hotel and if we could avoid some of the current airport chaos by dropping the night before, it would be great. Our flight QF81 to SIN at 11:10am. Thanks Lisa

    Where to transit?

    Spent two hours on the phone to QF - they couldn’t offer any alternates nor upgrade either of my QF bookings. So I am thankful I had a backup. DH has agreed we will go via SIN.

    Reciprocal Health Care Agreement

    Obviously no one has had to use the agreement which was my question, nor read my original post. Yes I do have insurance - it’s a genuine policy underwritten by Allianz - it covers all the usual things - I have read the PDS back to front, it has a policy number and if the need arises I contact...

    Reciprocal Health Care Agreement

    To clarify I will have travel insurance - I would never travel without , it just has a general exclusion for pandemic/epidemic.

    Where to transit?

    The original CX flights were 159000 points each and 625.00 total in taxes The SIN transit was 144400 and $376 The BKK transit was 129700 and $338 Each of these has the QF sector in Y and I have requested an upgrade I think that was 58000 points. I didn’t really look any more than that, Luckily...

    Where to transit?

    Booo I live in hope that if a J award that I am currently holding is cancelled they will try an re route me to something equivalent and I could offer up that as an option. If not - it’s a daytime flight, it won’t be the end of the world. 1650460090 Just a few hours in the airport.

    Middle name shown on passport but not flight tickets

    The problem is booking flights through the QF system - there is no field for middle name. I had this issue a few years back and was panicked about it but all was fine. This time I have put both my names in the first name field and hoping that won’t throw up an error. Also same issue with CX...

    Reciprocal Health Care Agreement

    Has anyone ever had the need to use the reciprocal health care agreement? We are travelling to Italy and Australians can get treated in hospital under this agreement. I am not planning to take additional insurance , other than Westpac Complimentary which does not cover pandemics. I am not too...

    Where to transit?

    No, both flights out of Sydney are on QF in Y. My hope is that if CX is cancelled QF would upgrade us on these flights. I am reading that BKK requires proof of insurance and PCR even for transit. I am planning on using our Westpac complimentary insurance which does not cover pandemics - but our...

    Where to transit?

    Hi there We are headed to Italy in September - I currently have 3 separate award flights itineraries booked to get us there. My first booking is SYD-HKG-FCO on Cathay all in J. This is my preferred route, but the situation in HKG and the viability of Cathay Pacific worries me, so I had to have a...

    New Credit Card When Retired

    Could this be age related discrimination? In the event of your passing credit card debt is unsecured, I don't believe beneficiaries are obliged to pay it out from superannuation death benefit.

    QR award availability down to 219 days???

    Yep, we have churned a couple of cards since booking last year so I’ll be sitting on about 1.2million points when my final cancellation comes through. This burns because I spent $800 buying top up points to make our last flight - turns out that wasn’t necessary. We had thought we could keep...
