    Which Star Alliance frequent flyer program should I join?

    I will be flying to Canada to live for at least a year in late August. I am currently with Velocity, QFF and Qatar Privilege. I am not with KrisFlyer or Air New Zealand Airpoints as living in Australia it has made sense to pool any points earnt on SG or NZ services to my Velocity account. Should...

    Air Asia's BIG! loyalty program

    It launched back in Feb apparently, has anyone spent time looking at it to see if there's actual value there? If so, where the value is (upgrades etc)? My partner and I are flying OOL -> KUL to start a Borneo trip, so I sense surely there'll be enough points earned there to counteract the 10RM...

    Who do you complain to about an airline frequent flyer program?

    Late last year, Etihad promoted double points to Ireland, for flights booked by 31 December 2011 and to travel any time in 2012. I dutifully registered for the promotion, booked my flights, travelled out of Oz on 31st march and returned arriving on 16th April. But no double points. When I...

    The most fortuitus mistake made by an airline or loyalty program to benefit you?

    This may be a bit contentious (an you may not wish to share :)), but I'd thought I'd start a thread asking people's best capitalisation from an airline or travel loyalty program's mistake that you've been able to make... eg. got 2x bonus points awarded on sign up; paid for y class got issued a...

    QFF Scheme is Making fools of us.

    After 4 years as a QFF member I decided not to fly Qantas anymore unless its a must. The straw that broke the camel's back was when I found out they charge an annual fee to transfer points from CBA CC to their program. That is right down ridiculous! I've been living abroad for a long time and...

    Advice please - Which *A Frequent Flyer Program for the Parentals?

    Looking at joining the parentals in laws up to a *A FF program. What do you think is the best option for this type of travel? They would do 1-2 overseas trips per year on a Star Alliance to Canada, USA, UK, Singapore and Hong Kong over the next 5 years. Travel would be in Y or premium if a...

    1865 loyalty program (Langham hotels)

    I am about to move up to Voyager status in this program. Are there any members out there who have achieved this level and think it is particularly worthwhile? The majority of my stays are at The Langham in Auckland.

    1 loyalty program vs Several Loyalty programs ?

    Hi, I am a KF member (most of the time when travelling OS, I fly with Sing Air). However, not many credit cards in Australia offer a good redemption for KF miles. I wonder if I should join another Loyalty Program (Velocity with Virgin). I personally dislike Qantas. Do you normally...

    Joining infant to Qantas frequent flyer program

    Dear all I have 6 J flights coming coming for the family, including our newborn. Is it worth it to join Frequent flyers, as no points will be earned. Woollworths would not join her via everyday rewards, as minimum age is 1 year. Would she still earn status credits though? Can't seem to see...
