    Air New Zealand Economy Skynest

    Often in ULH you don't carry the full load you normally would anyway, so switching out some seats for this concept might work well. In the video they have it set up at the back of the plane, but I could see two of these being set up side by side in the last few middle rows of an aircraft...

    Air New Zealand Economy Skynest

    An interesting concept, looks quite tall. I wonder if placed where usual seats would be how many rows/seats it would displace? On such long flights, might make more sense as a PE product than a Y product.

    AFF Gathering #14 in CBR on 4 - 6 December 2020

    It did appear to have some good inclusions, but I figured I'd miss out on using most of them with my time occupied with AFF activities, and thus I wouldn't get maximum value.

    New Qantas safety demo 2020

    As much as I want to continue the jokes about the coffee, I'd rather it was erased from my memory. Seems very appropriate considering what this year will be for Qantas.

    AFF Gathering #14 in CBR on 4 - 6 December 2020

    I have also made a refundable booking at the Peppers, but through ALL to claim points. Can hotel points also be claimed through Luxury Escapes, or is it treated like booking through a hotel booking site? I think it is interesting to note that the last time an AFF Gathering was held in...

    Global Qantas Double Status Credits Offer (Book 20-26 Feb 2020; Fly: 28 Feb 2020-14 Feb 2021)

    Just saw there were errors... but this might be the first time since I became a member in 2009 (of both QFF and the site) that I have sat out a DSC. I have nothing to gain – not even a loyalty bonus – by booking extra flights now. LTG in the bag next month, WP re-qualification just 3 months into...

    P1 status run- can it be done?

    Do tell. So tempting, but not sure that's a wise investment for me. I'll be LTG soon, no chance of ever getting to LTP and the next membership year already has slightly over 1200SC booked. It's hard sitting on the sidelines, itching to book something but knowing I don't need to. I seem to...

    P1 status run- can it be done?

    Many have chased it, myself included in 2014. I had a reasonably good run of a year at the P1 level, only one international trip and I was upgraded on 1 of my 4 flights. Domestically I was upgraded closer to 50% of the time, but I hear P1's these days need to dial down their expectations. Also...

    Received the SPP email today, and may buy some extra as the minimum is quite low.

    Upset Qantas FF silver member

    I also would have jumped at that offer too. Trouble for the OP is, if their regular flying year (to 31st Jan) usually only covers 500SC then they would need to be smarter in the future to even re-qualify. Attaining and keeping status requires a certain amount of forward planning. In this case...

    Project Sunrise gets massive support boost due to Corona virus

    If I was going to draw a random reason out of a hat for why Australians might like to fly direct instead of connect and avoid SE Asia/ME countries, it wouldn't be fear of a virus, but perhaps a 6-letter 'ism' starting with 'R'. But I'm not going to open that can of worms and suggest such a...

    Rexit because QF wrecks it?

    The same can be said of what Qantas will do with their Dash 8-200/300 frames. I don't believe they'd be able to service LDH without them. While I can understand the frustration from REX when QFLink enters the market, the fact their prices are high and their product has remained the same...

    Question KrisFlyer Gold vs Velocity Platinum?

    Where do you travel internationally usually, is it all exclusively with Singapore Airlines or do you use other carriers, such as those partnered with VA Velocity? What sort of fares do you book domestically?

    Have you had to change/cancel travel due to 2019 n-CoV (involuntarily or voluntarily)?

    I literally reported what I was told, I'm not a doctor myself, I wouldn't pretend to know more than he does (although clearly it seems his logic was a little flawed in this case).

    Have you had to change/cancel travel due to 2019 n-CoV (involuntarily or voluntarily)?

    Well it's been many years now of monitoring why my neutrophils shoot up and down so the thought of a second opinion has been considered previously, but that's a discussion for a different thread. I just go with what I'm told by the people I see regularly. I'll get a second opinion from a friend...
