• I have just closed mine as it has diminished in value due to the changes and I din't spend that much at WW stores or Service Stations. Found that ANZ Black suits me better and I have easily covered the extra Annual fee (after first year free) by the savings made with points earning etc. Plus If I...

  • It's a waste of time generally, QF often only have one attendant manning the gate so it's Rafferty's Rules.

  • I have been doing it for some time, as a frequent visitor but a also with my Apec Card. trouble now is that everyone will be doing it and creating long cues, of course that is unless HK airport adds more automated gates

  • It's simple most of the time, and most hotels I stay in are good to go. Another way to watch Aust TV is to get onto one of the VPNs that trick OZ TV companies into thinking you are still in the Country, I use Witopia, low cost and allows great access to OZ TV

The great feature of this case is that it has a separate zipped front section that allows me to store my MacBook Air & iPad as...

    Yes, I think the consensus is that QF are treating all clients with contempt, and to top it off now up to Platinum have to pay for Domestic Exit rows. On the other hand, as an Emerald One World, I basically get upgrades almost everytime I fly with Cathay, now that i am Lifetime gold with QF and h...

  • Platinum is certainly worthwhile for International flights. I fly often with Cathay and get upgrades for FREE! quite often. Domestically Platinum was devalued by Qantas when they decided to charge Platinum FF's for Exit Rows, Once I have platinum this year I will putting points to my Cathay (Gold...
