• Bingo! An email came through from Qantas last night extending my Gold status. Much appreciated, I will continue to fly Qantas later in the year with pleasure.

  • I disagree, this is a place to discuss travel, points and status credits. Everyone else can talk about how to control the spread of a virus elsewhere. We will get back to normal eventually and knowing our position is important to us here. Gut feeling, I think the airlines will extend or maintain ...

  • Not offering a full menu to a minority of people such as vegans is not a disgrace, merely slightly disappointing. It is your choice to be vegan, as it is Qantas choice what they offer.

Then I head to Emirates primarily for a few glasses of proper champagne and nuts, followed by a starter for m...
