    AMEX: Are additional card holders eligible for sign-up bonus

    I received a "Golden referral offer" to forward to someone interested in getting an AMEX Qantas Ultimate card for a total of 195,000 Qantas points (120K for me and 75K for the potential new cardholder). My question is would a current additional cardholder on my AMEX account be eligible for the...

    QF Economy Flex books into Discount Economy

    I used to see the fact that QF hides fare class on their website as something annoying, but today I realised just how stupid that decision is. So I tried to book a Flex Y ticket MEL-SYD-DFW-ATL, YYZ-ORD-LAX-SYD-MEL and I made sure to select only QF codeshare on the AA domestic segments. Using...

    "Menu Select" not available if upgraded

    I'm not sure if this is an enhancement or a software glitch but I'm unable to use the "Menu Select" function for an upcoming flight. I had already pre-ordered a meal two days ago for my flight to HKG (booked in PE) and last night I received a notification that my upgrade request to J was...

    MH A330 Y cabin

    I'm flying MH in Y for the first time from MEL to KUL. I selected bulkhead seat 9A on the A333. Anyone knows what the legroom is like in row 9? Are rows 9 and 10 forming some kind of mini Y cabin located between J and the second exit door?

    SPG properties in Sri Lanka...will they ever open!

    I was really looking forward to book a room at the brand new Sheraton Colombo for an upcoming QR flight to the LOFTAP (took adavantage of the QR promo earlier this year with return fare ~2K in J), but the SPG website now says "opening November 1st 2017", I'm sure it was saying June 1st only a...

    TK6491 crashes near FRU

    I read on BBC that a TK 747 freighter just crashed near FRU, killing ~20 people. Looking at FR24, it says that the plane landed...the last data point is 2375 ft of altitude (Wiki says the runway at FRU is at an elevation of 2,090 ft). Bad weather is suggested as a possible cause.

    Check-in for international itinerary including overnight stay after domestic flight

    I really feel like I should know the answer to this...but obviously I don't :oops: I have booked MEL-SYD-NOU with a 16 hour layover in SYD. Can I use the automated bag drop in MEL and collect my bag in SYD before spending the night at Rydges or do I need to go to the international...

    Cockroach(es) in the cabin

    I was enjoying a nice meal in the J cabin when suddenly I noticed a cockroach crawling from the side panel of my seat and quickly hiding behind the TV monitor. The uninvited guest later came out of its hideout and crawled in the general direction of my ice cream:evil:!!! I managed to kill it and...

    Gold thank you certificates

    I just recently reached Gold status with SPG and I received an email with a link to download 4 "Thank you certificates" to give to SPG staff providing great service. I think it's a very good idea and I'm sure staff in the USA are well aware of that program, but what about more exotic places (e.g...

    QR KUL-MUC J return AUD2,000

    I saw this deal posted on FT (credit to mlqsko). Not the best status run if crediting to QF (260 SCs) but AUD2,000 for KUL-MUC return is not bad at all!

    Answered Which oneworld lounge at Narita?

    I will be flying out of PEK on JL and I have the choice of routing via NRT to connect to QF62 or HND connecting to QF26. I've never been to either airport and it appears that JL operates First class lounges at both airports. Which airport has the best F lounge(s) and are they accessible before...

    Time required for points to credit to QFF

    I converted some Hyatt points to QFF on 10 February and the points still haven't posted to my account. I looked at my QFF activity statement from last year and Hyatt points used to credit in around 7 days. Should I contact Hyatt or wait a few weeks? Any recent experience from other members on...

    QF check in for Intl flights in the Dom J lounge at MEL

    I'm flying to LHR on QF9 tonight travelling with HLO. I tried to check in online, but it didn't work because it couldn't check me in for the connecting flight on BA (that's what the error message said). So now I guess I'm "partially checked in"... So my question is can I complete the checkin and...

    QF priority boarding at LHR

    This is a mini-rant because I HATE being treated like a child... So the last time I boarded QF2 at LHR there was an announcement that boarding would begin soon, so a large number of PAX flying J and F and QF SG and WP (inlcuding myself) started forming queues for boarding in their respective...
