• We experienced the breakfast last week when flying from Fiji to Sydney. It actually worked better than I thought. When checking in you get given a card and that lets you order a hot option in addition to the buffet available to people in the lounge via status. We both had eggs Benedict served ...

  • The late night one makes sense, not sure about breakfast. We will be on the flight to Sydney in late August, so can experience first hand. It’s not a very long flight, so I don’t see how too many people would be sleeping. I don’t like early mornings, but even so don ...

  • It would be nice to get this clarified with Qantas/AA. You used to get entry to the clubs when travelling on AA flights, because of reciprocal arrangement with AA club membership. I had a look at the AA site and it advertises entry to all the Qantas Clubs, with no mention of it having to be an ...

  • You get 30 minutes to use the room, but 5 minutes of water and you can stop and start the timer again. Doesn’t sound much but plenty to have a shower.

  • I can confirm - we did this on Saturday coming back from Santiago and there is now a screen with a list of countries. If you haven’t been to one of them, you can still use the smartgate, When we were waiting for luggage (total fiasco), customs and bio security people were checking cards a...

    28 degrees (credit)+ Citibank plus (cash) Used this combination all over the world including places like Kenya and Rwanda and it has worked beautifully. Both are fee free to hold and no Fx fees.

  • Flew OEB to Santiago in January. Left 4 hours late, because first the Entertainment system wasn’t working (they never got it to work adequately), then one of the galleys wasn’t working. Horrible Business class experience. Said at the time it needed to be put out of its misery, so g...

  • US Domestic Lounge Access

    You have your QC membership that will get you into all the AA ones. To be quite honest they are pretty marginal (apart from the Flagship ones which are nice). They give you a quiet place to sit and a drink and a few snacks.

  • I have flown all over the world with the tags on and never had a problem (nor been told to take them off at Canberra airport), however my daughter has been told to remove them when flying out of Canberra, so who knows.....
