• I am still fuming mad about PP. I was a member throughout 2020.  They offered no extensions, no refunds, no changes, nothing.  They banked the membership fees and laughed all the way to the bank.  The only travel company in 2020 to give nothing back to customers that could not use ...

  • Curses and Boooooo to QR for being the only major Oneworld hub with status lounges different to class lounges.
