    Answered AUH Midfield Terminal and EY Lounge plans?

    The last I heard, the new midfield terminal might actually open before year end (after at least 2 yrs delay). Any more up to date status? Also, has anyone seen what is planned for new EY lounge facilities? You’d think they might be a bit more special than existing ones. The current 1st Lounge...

    Beijing and beyond

    Surprisingly, there doesn’t seem to be a general thread on this destination, but anyway - booked a QF J Sale to PEK a few months ago and I now need to pull finger out and start booking things on the ground! I’m thinking that only one side trip is sensible - maybe Xi’an? Seeking...

    Question Should I go for VA WP one more time?

    I think the answer is "No" but open to ideas. I've been VA WP since the original status match with QFF. My work travel (once or twice a month domestically and one or two Euro trips in J per year) has generally keep me there. The odd DSC offer helped some years. Due to a change in work...

As a QF WP/OWE what are the chances of on OP UP (putting aside loads etc) - do QR even entertain non-QR status PAX? Do OPUPs and/or paid upgrades get access to the Al Safwa lounge in DOH? My last trip on...

    ITA Matrix “Journey with origins in multiple countries are not supported“

    Is it just me or has this stopped working? As per the article below, I’m sure I’ve been able to check for best fares from multiple Euro origins back to Oz (or elsewhere). How to use ITA Matrix to find cheap British Airways flights from Europe Even using the example at the link, I get an error...

    Does converting e-Rewards to Le Club extend expiry?

    I signed up to e-Rewards surveys a while back through an IHG offer and they have proved handy extending some mileage accounts (eg UA) plus topping up IHG, HH and VFF. But I just noticed that Accor is now there as a conversion option - is that new? Not the greatest conversion rates: 2000 OPs ->...

    Apparently LATAM is going through some protracted IT merge that is making it impossible for me to select some decent seats online - well at least for my booking. Wondering if there are any workarounds? I booked SYD-AKL-SCL-AEP//MDZ-SCL//SCL-SYD via QF during the companion J sale. QF seat...
  17. SYD (AR site) significantly cheaper. Any catch?

    I think I saw a similar question elsewhere but couldn't find the thread. Anyway, I need to book one way flights AEP or EZE to MDZ. The LATAM (AU) site and from what I can tell, all the OTAs and Google flights are quoting around A$280 pp one-way (note: booking a return is just double the one way...
