Sydney to Brisbane is only a short trip, but travelling with a 3yr and 1yr old means the length of the journey is rarely the issue. QF staff were very helpful at all points of contact, checking in (Strollers...

    minor reductions in Qantas credit card surcharges

    Qantas cuts debit card surcharge to $2.50 and credit card fee to $7 | Hardly earth shattering, Qantas has announced minor reductions in some card surcharges. Personally I think this is an ambit position ahead of any possible regulatory move against such charges.

    children joining QFF

    I was wondering how we could get our children free QFF memberships through Woolworths (or any other way), when the minimum age for joining Everyday Rewards was 18 years old? Does anyone know how to circumnavigate this problem?

    100 high school kids kicked off flight

    Good to see proactive action being taken and lots of publicity. A few more cases like this and maybe people will start to get the message.

    Bassinette Seat in J: worth taking the risk ?

    Friends A380 EK metal flight, 2200 departure time, SYD DXB, travelling solo. All good A/K seats are now gone. 7 A/K are available but are designated bassinette seats. Worth a punt that no baby would be flying ???? My guess is that in the worst case, I may be moved to another seat (all with...

    I've just returned from a 3 week trip across 4 countries with my partner and kids (teenagers). The OneWorld lounges ALL played hardball on the "one guest" rule which meant that most times we opted not to use the lounge.
