    A pilot's bucket list

    My bucket list includes a number of aviation museums. I've been to some on my work travels, but I'm currently planning a trip to the USA to tick off some of their offerings. I'm going to try to use points to get me there. Staff travel is just too iffy. The list I want to see: 1. Chino (in LA)...

    Which airline to book with...?

    I'm looking at booking a trip to NZ. I can book it directly with Emirates, or via Qantas as a code share. I want to actually fly on EK. At the moment, the prices on both booking engines appear to be the same. I don't care about points with either airline. Is there any particular reason to book...

    Europe from the back seat

    Having been to parts of Europe many times during my flying life, I'm now starting to see it from the other side. No more 36 hour stays, but sadly I have to pay for the accommodations. This trip has stops in Singapore, Zurich, Salzburg, Vienna, Graz, Ljubljana, Venice, Florence, Lucca, Milan...

    The view from the other side...

    Well, six months down the road from retiring, and I ventured back on to a QF A380, for a 'boys trip' to Las Vegas with my son. The impulse to just wander around as if I owned the aircraft is still pretty strong. We booked in PE. Commercial tickets, just like everyone else. Contrary to the...

    Answered Booking engines

    I've always been curious about some of the seemingly silly transit times that some passengers have. Bookings that don't make any allowance for any possibility of delay are pretty common. Now that I'm looking at using the booking systems myself, I guess I'm starting to see why. Some of the...

    Query about lounge access

    I have an elderly relative flying from Cairns to Albury, via Sydney, later in the year. He's flying business class on the sector to Sydney, but it doesn't exist on the Qlink sector to Albury. Will he be able to access the lounge during the 3 hour wait in Sydney?

    Krisflyer email verification

    I've just been looking at opening a new Krisflyer account. Like most, it finishes with the statement that it will send an email, basically to verify that the email address is real. Normally such an email is pretty much instant, but this seems to be coming by boat. Is this normal?

    For the IT gurus [Network routing issue to AFF]

    Over the last couple of days I've had an odd issue accessing this forum from any computer at home. If I enter any australianfrequentflyer address, the browser stalls, and never loads the page. If I use a foreign VPN I get access, but if I use an Australian VPN server I end up stalled as well...

    Answered How on earth do you actually use points?

    Whilst I know all about the mechanics of the flying game, I know nothing about how you use your points. For various reasons, in a year or two, I'd like to look at getting to Europe, probably from Singapore, using points. Looking at the Krisflyer system, flights mostly seem to be waitlisted right...

    A question (AMEX) points to KF

    Curiosity.....roughly how many Amex points would be required to get a Singair J class seat from Melbourne to Singapore, return. Without being a member of anything, I don't seem to be able to look it up.

    For those with a general interest in aviation, make sure you get yourself to Temora for one of their biannual flying days. They have smaller events every couple of weeks, and you normally see three or four of their aircraft flying. Earlier this year we saw the Wirraway, Boomerang, Spitfire and...
