    Why keep obsolete IFE boxes?

    On another QF 737 again the plane had been upgraded to Qantas entertainment but the old IFE boxes were still bolted on. The same seem to apply to their 330's with iPad's. Why would they still keep them as the seat back screens are long gone? Instead, the few extra centimetres of space for your...

    Headphone adapters in SQ

    Does SQ economy give you the 1 to 2-prong adapter to use your own headphones with standard 3.5mm plug, or do you need to BYO?

    I never receive Velocity email offers but my wife does

    Hi, is there some secret to getting the velocity bonus and offer emails? My wife gets them all - bonus points, double SC, BP offers, etc. In my preferences I have all checkboxes ticked for email correspondence. Can you shed any light on this?

    My wife has to fly business for medical reasons

    Yes, I'm serious. Last year she was hit by a car while cycling. She underwent major back surgery and now sports a part-titanium spine. She's making a good recovery but she (and we) travel a fair bit for work and leisure overseas. I'm reaching out to the AFF community as a long term admirer of...

    Hi all, there has always been much discussion surrounding this benefit / goal within QF's program. Many have attained it, still many more are actively seeking it. But who here actually uses it? What I am trying to understand is who has either dropped back to LTG and now enjoys using its...

    Do all airlines (and specifically China Airlines) change IFE at month-start?

    I think the topic basically says it all ... is it a standard thing for all airlines to be changing In Flight Entertainment on the first of a month; or do some change it more often than that? Flying China Airlines again tomorrow, last time was the start of the same month (& I’m expecting the...

    Life Silver Recognition? Nope accused of made up crime and threatened with arrest..

    So having reached life silver in six years of work travel I didn't have high hopes for the "perks", so when I was approached by a crew member after take off (SYD->PER) I thought, maybe I get a little pat on the head for my milestone? Not so, I was accused of filming the safety demonstration...

    Lifetime silver to gold

    Just wondering if you are LTS which I am not far off, then do you only require 400 SC points to earn gold and 300 to maintain or do qantas make you earn 700 to get it and 600 to keep as per normal?

    What happened to the in-flight entertainment? [content]

    I just got off a return trip SYD - OOL and the in flight entertainment on the app was woeful! The amount of content is drastically less than before, the quality was also lacking and there was almost no TV shows at all which are much better for a short flight when you can't fit a 2 hour movie in...

    QF IFE down compensation question

    Flew QF BNE-PER on a J award fare. Seat back IFE was down for the entire flight, but the Q streaming was operational for BYO devices in J. It meant I couldn’t do my planned work and ‘be entertained’ at the same time. I know, first world problem... but it did give a less than overwhelming...

    The death of the seat-back screen: is this the end of in-flight entertainment as we know it?

    The seat has no IFE

    And I don't care, but let's tell the story. When checking in at the Airport Express station this afternoon I was asked to change my route home, I booked HKG-BNE-MEL, It will give me exactly enough SCs (with the HKG 50% extra SCs) to retain WP for another year. I refused to change the routing...
