• The T's& C's mention the extra status credits take "up to" 6 weeks to arrive. My renewal date is August 1st. I am doing two trips BNE-MEL (weekend of 17/18 Jul and 31 Jul/1 Aug). I wonder if anyone knows realistically if the BONUS status credits are instant like normal status credits, or if t...

  • How cool that the uptake of intrastate flights is there. That goes to show that as soon as borders open, we’ll see a strong and quick return of people on planes. Back to normal. Yay! I myself live in cairns and flew to Bris and back this past weekend and yeah the planes were predominantly f...
