• Glady's and her mob cut the railway line 5km from the city so...no trains to Newcastle since 2015

  • Qantas opens London lounge

    Odd powerpoint choice, they could have installed multi adapters to allow for both UK and AU plugs.

  • How would one learn if there are connecting flight options with QF from Canberra to join this flight? Sri Lanka is gorgeous and I would so love for my extended family to experience the island. Colombo airport, especially the lounge, is not that exciting. No where one would want to look forward to...

  • So what happens if the app shows your bag is not onboard the same aeroplane as you? Seems like this is a process generating information rather than lowering lost / delayed luggage. Would have been better if they identified where the existing baggage information system fail to ensure bags connect ...

  • Entered!BTW "across-the-pond" refers to trans Atlantic, "across the ditch" is trans Tasman.

  • Qantas FF membership card

    May 10, 2017, 06:48 AM

    When I just fell back to Bronze I cut it up the new one up as I look at it  a credit card and am risk adverse to fraud /theft. I have my 20 year old bronze card to use for now but doubt I will use it for the near future.

  • I went Syd - CDG, FCO - Syd last August with CX using QFF points. The points required was far higher than if I had used QF, I think it consumed an 300 000 points, but the taxes were just $225 or so. If it was me I would firstly look at the options adl - SEA with cash in economy and then  a c...
