    Swapping Classes

    I have 4 * J HKG-SYD award ticket on QF at end of January next year. Now I have found that my parent-in-laws will be joining us.

    SYD-HKG QF F vs VA J

    I am currently booked on VA J SYD-HKG on 18 Jan at 10am. I checked AA and noticed that QF F is available on QF127 departing at 9:35am for 50K miles. The question is, is QF F worth it over VA J, especially given it is on their A380, and with HKG being such a mess, i may ended up getting a...

    SCs after requalifying Platinum

    I have just requalified Platinum and I still have about 2 months left. What happens to the SCs earned for these 2 months? Do they go to waste given there is no lifetime status?
