It also provides you with a platform to ask redundant questions.

I always liked a good 'dorothy dixer'.

Cause I'm not as much of a frequent flyer as some other contributors, a lot of AusBT for me is aspirational and reading up on any new routes or specials available.

I'm more of a bargain hunter then a lofty Platinum, but enjoy the tales from the pointy end.

If you have to fly for work, or for leisure/pleasure, AusBT and AFF will help you get information on SC or Status Credit accumulation tips.

That these days is more important than purely frequent flyer miles or points, which a lot of places will now give out for spending money with them, ie, credit cards, Woolworths EDR, etc.  These do not help you climb the SC ladder, but flying with your airline of choice, which ever one, at least cost, but accumulating the most SC is the aim.

I have not seen credit cards that give out SC, it has been mentioned on AFF that there are such cards, but I have not ever seen them.

MEL-SYD-BNE gives me 30 in whY, but gives me 120 in J which is half of what I need to keep QF PS.  OR 60% of what I would need to keep VA PS.

And the inequlity

Qantas-Silver frequent flyer retain-250 QF SC

Virgin Australia-Silver frequent flyer retain-200 VA SC

But which of these 2 are the best, only considering these 2.

Qantas of course, has the better program, VA has its good points, but still, its lounges have a long way to go to go over the top of the QP (Qantas Club).
