    EF not seeming to reflect award flights for QF platinum

    Hi, I am a premium member of EF and a QFF plat. I have added my QFF number to EF but the searches do not reflect the availability on the QF award site. I have checked dates for SYD-SIN/JNB/HKG and, although seats are available on the QFF engine, they do not show on EF. EF is so much easier to...

    Hi all, Have just been lucky to find 2 J reward seats from Asia to Europe. I've heard how tricky Qatar tends to be with J lounge access. If I have J on both legs, will I still be able to get Al Mourjan J class? or am I stuck at the one world class lounge? From what I'm looking, we will have a...

    Earning Avios with AND free award night

    I was just scoping out BA Avios and learned if you book through the BA website to here you can still earn your rewards night after every 10 nights (which I value highly for personal stays in non-chain places) but you can earn Avios as well. Thinking about accruing a few Avios as I...

    Factors impacting classic award avails early 2020?

    Hi crew For the past two months I been monitoring avails to LAX for Jan/Feb 2020 via all eastern seaboard ports like a hawk, and it's been an absolute drought! I have seen nothing J/F on QF metal, from any airport, which is highly unusual. Over the past several years there has always been...

    New RewardPay Rates are not really good enough

    So as predicted, RewardPay has lowered their rates, but unless you are spending large $$ in single payments, I don't think it will be enough for me to keep using the service. Or am I doing my sums incorrectly? *Single payment amount Rate %(+GST) **After Tax Rate 0 to < 20k 2.15% 1.51%...

    Redemption from IST temporarily unavailable online?

    Just a heads up: With the recent devaluation coming up, I was looking to book the flight back from Europe via IST. Turns out, today is the day (April 6th) they are doing the big migration to the new airport, so attempting to search for a redemption flight via IST will instead only show up with...

    United is ditching award charts

    United is planning to introduce dynamic award pricing and ditch award charts from 15 November. I guess this is the same as what Delta SkyMiles has been doing for a few years. I must say, I'm really not a fan of dynamic award pricing at all. I like to know how much an award is going to cost as I...

    JAL website now shows Oneworld award availability for all airlines

    The Japan Airlines website is sometimes used when searching for Oneworld award availability because it tends not to show the "phantom" award availability that is sometimes displayed on the Qantas (and other) websites. This can sometimes be an issue for CX availability, among other airlines. The...
