Australian passport photos: no glasses after July 1, 2018May 28, 2018, 11:28 AM
My glasses have a slight tint in them so have been unable to use them in passport photos for years. I am Ok with taking them off but really wish the smartgate system was better designed. The small print on the screen is almost impossible to read with the glasses off and a simple red cross or gr...
Flying trans-Tasman with Virgin, AirNZ: what happens now?Apr 05, 2018, 09:03 AM
It is interesting to me that the split occurred so soon after Emirates effectively stopped flying the route anymore. Looks like that threat was removed and the carriers have decided to go their own way. The Air NZ perks were great but the loss of them further across the Pacific made the Mel to N...
It's called Oneworld Alliance... but is it actually one?Feb 26, 2020, 07:52 AM
Skoffman I also had a paid first class ticket booked on QF35 booked as an Emirates ticket. Heard about change here and rang Qantas 24 hours later. They confirmed change but said any change to QF 1 would have to be made by Emirates. Emirates had no idea what to do and suggested I apply for a parti...
Qatar Airways deplorable treatment of top-tier Oneworld frequent flyersOct 01, 2019, 01:06 AM

Check in staff could not tell you which lounge to use or where it was no priority immigration no priority bag tags unless you ask for them. Good in the air with great recognition but woeful on the ground and in...
Uber drivers cancelling shorter trips out of the airportNov 26, 2018, 07:48 PM
Had an Uber driver cancel a trip from suburban Melbourne to the city because I wasn’t going to the airport. He called me to ask where I was going and then cancelled when I told him I needed a 15 minute trip into town. Definitely bad behaviour creeping in without the mechanism to respond tha...
Duty Free Hong KongOct 10, 2018, 08:31 PM
I flew home from Colombo in August and there were no liquids check, didnt even have to take the plastic bag out with the 100ml liquids in it and others carried full bottles through. Have the rules changed?
Priority Bag TagsJul 16, 2018, 08:23 PM
As a Virgin Gold and Qantas Platinum I must say the priority bag tags is one thing Virgin get right. Bags are almost always in the first few off. Qantas domestic has been a fail since the Q tags were introduced. The other day in Auckland the priority tag had been ripped off and my bag was the las...
