    "the trip to get to TLV turned to ..."

    Well, if it makes you feel any better, the trip to get to TLV turned to excrement. Another case of different people at QF telling me different things. Several hours before departure I'm noticied of a 90 minute delay. The connection at LHR to TLV gives me 3 hours. So now we're down to MCT. I...

    Strange seat selection

    I'm flying on QF9 PER-LHR next week in Y as a WP. At the time off booking (several months ago) I selected 41D. I'm an aisle kinda guy. I figure a centre aisle is my best option as if there is someone in the middle seat there is a good chance they'll be travelling with someone in the other aisle...

    Vent - QF call centre incompetence

    This is a first world problem, but no excuse for incompetence and a poor customer experience. Background is as part of my OWA J I had booked QR16 LHR-DOH specifically for Q-suites. I noticed a week ago when checking seat selection the aircraft has changed to two generation old J with a 2-2-2...

    New pay per use lounge for PER

    Reported here Touch of Perth departure class with pay-per-use lounge for the T1 international terminal. I wonder if Priority Pass would get access. I'd imagine so. View looks fantastic. Certainly better than the QP.

    Answered Issue with seat selection due to duplicated FF number

    Hi all, I've booked a OW award for MrsDaver6 and I that includes flights on QF, QR, AY, UL and CX. Obviously I cannot select seats for other airlines using the QF MMB. Retrieving my booking on QR, it gives me an error when I finalise QR seat selection. Something along the lines of my FF number...

    2FA login to AFF

    I just noticed 2FA using an authenticator code is now available. This is fantastic! :) I note when logging in, there is an option to remember this computer for 30 days. Would be good to have an option to just remember the computer without expiry too. My 2 cents :)

    Answered Easiest/cheapest way for gain ~4k points

    After some advice from those who are more knowledgeable about this program. I have just over 26k points and need to book one night at the IC at JNB airport. This seems like a good redemption given the cost for a room starting at $400+ per night. 30k points will get me a free night. I think I...

    Rumour: US Customs preclearance for Sydney

    Recently in the US I was on a flight sitting next to someone who worked for US Customs and Border Protection. They were confident that this would be happening in Sydney in the near future. Would be wonderful to avoid the mess that is LAX and presumably not needing to collect and recheck bags...

    Upgrades on QF11 and QF12 SYD <-> JFK

    When booked all the way through, how does the upgrade lottery work? Eg, I'm booked on QF12 JFK to SYD and put in a upgrade request from Y to J. Given there is a change of aircraft and people join the flight in LAX, who gets priority? Someone just bidding LAX to SYD sector? Doesn't seem like...

    Best Lounge shower LHR T3?

    WP passing through T3 and will be after a shower. Which lounge would have the best shower facilities? I'm guessing the new QF lounge might be decent. What about the CX F lounge? I also have PP access. I might be a little pushed for time, so lounge hopping to investigate isn't really an option...

    Screen real estate being eaten up

    I notice a change overnight that now when viewing a thread, on the right there is a user summary and "What we're discussing now" bit. See image below. How do I get rid of this when reading a thread. It's just annoying making me scroll even more with the narrower columns for the actual discussion?
