• Hmmm - I just booked (domestic on a Sunday - I'm platinum on qantas) and it didn't charge me to pick an exit row seat - very welcome but how's other's experiences? Are you being charged?

  • I agree - I'm saying thanks QF. This change finally prompted me to spend a (tedious) night's research on changing FF program (currently OF platinum). Here's where I landed (as an Australian and USA flyer) for anyone else that finds this useful: I'll change to the VA ff program and accelerate...

  • Well, they just killed one of the last worthwhile QFF platinum benefits. What do I care about? Mostly lounge access and legroom. Comparing Australia's two main programs (velocity and QF): Lounge access, velocity - internationally this is extremely dull to decipher. Even with hours ...

    Have a look at the LoungeBuddy (iOS) app. It’s sometimes a bit out of date but good developed world coverage and tells you what gate the lounge entrance is near which can be surprisingly useful.

  • QF Business class upgrades changing?

    Well my upgrade came through - happy flight! - about 26 hours before departure. This leaves me with an classic rewards upgrade success rate around 20 to 25% (WP). I’m curious what others find with this (note this is the first time I’d bothered to check expert flyer for the load in bus...
