    Macquarie changing earn rate on Platinum Card

    Just got an email from Macquarie advising of points earn change from 15 March 2018. 1 QFF point per dollar up to $1,000 (previously $2,500) per month, then 0.5 QFF points after that. Will now re-evaluate my options. I suspect they're limited anyway.

    Baggage allowance on AB in Y - Velocity Redemption

    Hoping one of the many guru's on here can help. I'm looking at making a Velocity redemption on AB in Y between TXL and CPH (yes - I know, not extracting the most value from points...but anyway...). The ever-so-helpful Velocity call center reps are telling me that they can't tell me luggage...

    LCY Immigration/Transit

    I just booked a QFF redemption on BA in J, TXL-LCY-JFK (with the Shannon stopover on BA1), travelling next month. Has anyone had any experience with transiting at LCY?

    Saw this on OzBargin this morning. Not on the NAB website yet, but will seriously consider transferring my loan from Commbank to NAB, if theres no difference to the comparison rate. Velocity points are being offered in large sums at the moment!

    Points and SC for flights not flown

    I was under the impression that points and SC are given only for segments actually flown? Recently I failed to show for two segments (being the entire booking), but the points and SC still posted. I'm certainly not complaining, given it was a .br booking. Has this happened to anyone else?

    QF 747's inside cover (The West Australian)

    I was reading The West Australian at work this morning (and don’t have a copy on me) - so what I’m about to quote is not verbatim. The West has an ‘inside cover’ – a satirical approach to W.A news and gossip. The article basically quoted a Perth QF representative named “Ms Q” – who was informed...
