    Is QF deliberately hanging up on me? AONE ticketing dispute

    I recently had an AONE4 ticket re-issued by QF and they quoted me an additional $1074.20 AUD in taxes/fees/carrier charges. This seemed to me an incorrect calculation, since I had already paid $1511.08 AUD in taxes for this ticket. (My new ticket has far fewer sectors and countries, and the only...

    Hi all. I'm a bit concerned that IB Express hasn't ticketed our flight yet,10 weeks after I bought and paid for it.
