Exactly - that's why I e-mailed them late last year requesting they close my account that had a grand total of MINUS 30 Airpoints. I received this cheery reply:Lindsay Wilson said:Excellent. One less program to have floating around and muddy the waters.
:shock: You can imagine how disappointed I was to learn that! :roll:Thank you for your email, and patience waiting for a reply.
Your Airpoints account has now been processed as closed, as requested.
Please note that we will be removing the Airpoints Dollars from your
account, if at a later stage you wish to reactivate your account, the
Airpoints Dollars will not be reloaded.
True story. I still have the original e-mail they sent me.Lindsay Wilson said:Why indeed would you want to re-start your account at -30 AirBucks??? Mick, are you seriously saying that's what they wrote to you....I can understand them saying that to a person who cancels their account with a positive balance..
Isn't it written in our constitution that New Zealand can become a state of Australia?Lindsay Wilson said:What, you mean Kiwi Land isn't our 8th & 9th State or Territory
I'm nore sure what the East or South-East islanders thought of that. Or indeed, us West islanders. :shock:mick said:
Correct. I believe they originally intended to be a part when Australia "became a nation". For some bizarre reason, they backed out at the last minute. :?mick said:Isn't it written in our constitution that New Zealand can become a state of Australia?
Heck, I'm an Aussie and don't find measly QFF points worth getting. I used to do Air Points (yep, I'm not proud), but then Air NZ changed it to status credits - copying QANTAS, and not in a good way. That was bad enough but then they went to these stupid Air Points $$.Kiwi Flyer said:QF isnt that old, and besides it would take a lot more than a few measly QF points to make being an australian attractive
Yep, that would be good.uncawes said:You Kiwi types can join Mileage Plus, and still earn points from Air NZ flights - the joys of *A. I just wish there was a domestic airline here that did that
