I do believe the lounge is open in Mel.Interesting. Looking at heading to DRW in a couple of weeks, so the via Melbourne option might be worth while if i can get upgrades to clear. There is a painful 3hr stop over in Mel between 10:30pm and 1:30am. Does anyone know if the lounge is open during this time?
I flew on the red eye from MEL-DRW about 12 months ago ... Lounge was open until flight was called.Interesting.

If you're not booking well in advance and the saver fares are $150+ look for any Flexis for $199 - you'll get double the SCs. Occasionally on some flights on some routes the flexi fare is even cheaper than the saver.My regular flights are limited to MEL-ADL... I'm silver status at the moment but will have a month flying through America in July and would like to upgrade to Gold to use the perks with my partner.
Any tips on how to maximise SC in the MEL-ADL route without having to fly J? I'm happy to pay Flexi even though my dates are usually set... however paying an average of $700 to fly business for a 1 hour flight seems like a complete waste of money IMO.
I think you need to visit Princess Fiona then fly to MEL via BNE for $175 to get 50 SC after the 13th, then come back, easy and cheap 100SC, you do need to position to TO FROM BNE which will be the same plane you fly in or fly out on.Okay, one for the gurus out there.
I am sitting on 895 SC's and need 105 SC's for Plat. I will have 80 SC's dropping off on (posted date) 17 Jan (flight date was 15 Jan) and then another 100 SC's on 23 Jan (flight date was 21 Jan).
I can either family pool with the (2) kids on Thursday 10th (so a flight of at least 20 SC's per sector required) or do it by myself on Fri 11th. I doubt I will have any flying next week (which would make it easier with the change to per sector SC's, but that's life ). Want to minimise the $ cost if Thursday, whereas Friday could be tax deductible (I have clients everywhere ).
What a conundrum to have. Now to do some research - my initial thoughts are MEL or ADL...anyone with any better options?
P.S. Nothing like research to give a downer. MEL apppears to be 15SC's, so that would leave me 15 short. Do I need to head to CNS for the day?
