    Jetstar Lounge Invitation Missing First?

    Hi Brain Trust, I've passed on a P1 invitation to a friend for a JQ flight but there is no first option under the drop down? Is this working as intended? Typing in First doesn't work either. Enhancement? This is under the independent 'Jetstar Bookings' option.

    Jetstar flight almost takes off from Melbourne with “door” open

    EDIT: The original post alleging a cargo door was open was removed and replaced with this one: It’s the comms panel that was left open, not the cargo door, apparently

    Scoot getting Embraer E190s

    This is kinda cool. Scoot will take delivery of its first E190 regional jets in May. The 2-2 seating layout should be quite tolerable. The first 6 Scoot E190 destinations ex Singapore have been announced as Krabi, Hat Yai, Koh Samui, Miri, Kuantan and Sibu...

    What to do when Jetstar downgrades a Classic Reward booking

    Last May my partner and I were downgraded from J on CR bookings on 2 flights SYD-DPS and DPS-SYD some weeks before departure due to aircraft changes (no J on Neo) - which I only discovered looking at seat maps, we were still noted as J in QF App, QF/JQ webpages etc. We called Qantas but as NB’s...
