    Let's talk about the Rex website

    I know a lot of people here have criticised the Virgin Australia website, but has anyone noticed just how terrible Rex's website is? It looks like it's from about 2005... because it is! (The copyright notice even says so.) I guess it (just) gets the job done, so they haven't thought it...

    Qantas schedules 747 to Tokyo in October 2020

    Qantas has scheduled a one-off Boeing 747-400ER service from MEL to HND on 19 October 2020 as QF79. (Whether it actually operates then is anyone's guess, however...) Seats are available for $366 one-way in Y, $786 in PE and $1,386 in J. Seats are not available for sale on the return QF80, so...

    Qantas Frequent Dreamer

    Qantas launched a new campaign this month that it's calling "Qantas Frequent Dreamer". The idea is that even though we can't travel now, we can still dream of where we'll go once the restrictions are lifted... and earn points now to make this happen in the future. It's a clever campaign from...

    What aspect of travel do you miss the most?

    As we all sit at home, I was wondering what specific part about not travelling everyone is missing in particular? Personally, I love flying but it's not the reason I travel. What I really miss is meeting interesting people from very difficult cultures, trying local foods/cuisines from all over...

    Do Tasmanian Woolworths customers really prefer the "Frequent $hopper Club"?

    For whatever reason, the Woolworths Rewards program does not operate in Tasmania. Instead, there's the Frequent $hopper Club which is not affiliated with Qantas Frequent Flyer. Tasmanians therefore cannot earn Qantas points at Woolworths, nor are they able to take advantage of the current status...

    Up to 150,000 points with Qantas Insurance (until 8 May 2020)

    Qantas is offering up to 150k QF points with new health insurance policies until 8 May. Earn up to 125,000 points in the first year, and 25,000 more points for renewing the policy for a second year. I think the full amount of points only comes with the top (i.e. most expensive) policies. Anyone...

    What have you found at the bottom of the cupboard?

    Like many of us, I've been cleaning and sorting out some of my old stuff while stuck at home. In the process, I've come across all sorts of airline-related paraphernalia in boxes and at the back of my wardrobe. I'll post some of them below. What have you found while sorting through old stuff at...

    Airlines redesign flight attendant uniforms for COVID-19

    We've seen a few airlines designing new flight attendant uniforms that offer more personal protection during the pandemic. AirAsia is the latest, launching bright red PPE suits for their cabin crew: AirAsia put out a press release about this a few days ago and it's been picked up by many...

    Thai Airways probably won't bring the 747 back to Sydney

    I know many on here have lamented the old 747s Thai Airways uses on its SYD-BKK flights. This has been great for F award availability (hello, LifeMiles!), but it's a sub-par experience for everyone else. Well, Thai has released a preliminary schedule listing for next year's northern summer...

    QF SYD-MEL down to 1 flight/day - via CBR on a Dash 8

    Out of curiosity, I just had a look at what Qantas flights are available from Sydney to Melbourne next weekend. On Saturday, there is only one Qantas flight scheduled for the entire day... on a Dash 8, and with a stop in Canberra. SYD-MEL is normally the world's second-busiest air route...

    What's it like to fly during the COVID-19 lockdown?

    Obviously most of us are staying at home at the moment - and rightly so. But some people still have to travel, and there are still limited flights operating. For anyone that still has to fly right now, what's it like? Most of the airport lounges are closed, and I can imagine that airports (and...

    Qantas rewards store implements 2-per-day limit

    This notice now appears on the Qantas Shopping Rewards Store website: Seems to apply to all products, not only gift cards. Doesn't really worry me - I wasn't planning to rush out to redeem my Qantas points for 3 toasters in one day, anyway. I note that Velocity introduced a limit of 1 gift...
