    What to do about my Bus Class award flight China Eastern?

    As per comments in the other thread. Worse case, your points will be refunded if you decide to cancel. But you still need to get home. If the virus hasn’t burnt itself out well before July - then I guess we all have much bigger problems to worry about. I will leave that to the experts But you...

    Qantas recently announced some kind of reciprocal relationship with KLM/Air France

    Not sure I follow, but if that’s a comment on a .au website - I hadn’t noticed it defaulted to that but you should be able to find exactly the same info on the Dutch KLM FlyingBlue website.

    Question Has anyone been impacted by the Coronavirus? Will travel insurance cover the costs if we wanted to cancel? Especially if the flights are with points.

    Pulled my April trip to PEK, XIY. Outbound flights were just outside QF free cancellation window but after a HUCA got some sympathy and paid 2 x J return are in the process of being refunded. PEK-XIA-PEK was on points and that has been refunded without penalty (points and cash already back)...

    Discontinuance of The Places app

    I *was* going to collect a China badge and a cascade of resulting badges but have cancelled an upcoming trip.....

    Discontinuance of The Places app

    You can claim stays retrospectively. Sorry, I don’t know for how long in the past. You only get bonus points for achieving Badges - which usually require more than one stay in a particular brand, country etc. The criteria are in the app.

    Question Has anyone been impacted by the Coronavirus? Will travel insurance cover the costs if we wanted to cancel? Especially if the flights are with points.

    I’m comforted by the fact that AY can reroute us via BKK, SIN or even the US(!) if they have to cancel more flights to problem areas.

    Question Has anyone been impacted by the Coronavirus? Will travel insurance cover the costs if we wanted to cancel? Especially if the flights are with points.

    Yes, something to consider if this all gets a lot worse before it gets better. I have a return AY J booking to Euro in Jun/Aug (via HKG 🙄) that straddles my QF year but it will do some heavy lifting and assuming PEK falls through, I now only need 45 SCs to find. Shouldn’t be too hard. I just...

    Question Has anyone been impacted by the Coronavirus? Will travel insurance cover the costs if we wanted to cancel? Especially if the flights are with points.

    Yes, my PEK trip in April is Looking decidedly dicey and having got an unexpected 50% SC boost by being rerouted via HKG, I went from possibly falling short of WP requal to potentially knocking it out of the park but now back to 2nd base... A snap decision yesterday and NOU looks a lot nicer...

    Spoke to Accor today, they will refund pre-paid stays in China. Now just need to sort out QF (we‘re booked just outside the free cancellation window...).

    SYD/BNE-HNL in QF/HA J for ~$2.5k return

    As an aside, QF Y+ seating for $800 return is pretty good! Especially compared to what you get/pay on JQ Biz it’s replacing!

    Question Has anyone been impacted by the Coronavirus? Will travel insurance cover the costs if we wanted to cancel? Especially if the flights are with points.

    In the time it took me to fly CBR-SYD, QF have now pushed the period out to 31 March. Alas, we‘re still in limbo with first outbound flight first week of April.

    Question Has anyone been impacted by the Coronavirus? Will travel insurance cover the costs if we wanted to cancel? Especially if the flights are with points.

    Funny you should mention that - our direct flights to PEK were rerouted via HKG after QF pulled out as of April. I wouldn’t be surprised if the withdrawal comes further left!
