Am I going to be okay with my extra baggage and lounge access with Privilege Club Gold if I purchase a Qantas Classic Rewards flight instead of a normal paid Qantas flight? Is there anything special I need to do?

My experience is the Accor scheme has been quite miserly full-stop. Has anyone been really impressed with Accor's loyalty programme and what broadly are your travel/accomodation habits?

The real question is lounge access for eligible flyers - will it be AirNZ in all affected cities after October?

Like mcglynp I'm not too fussed. I'm curious when people are experiencing this problems - I suspect it might be more of a where than a when.Perth and Melbourne lounges always seem to have reasonable space (and I've travelled on Christmas Eve). Sydney does have limitations but it seems more to do ...

I'm surprised at all the enthusiasm. Previously you could fly:QF434 (MEL-SYD) - 1:00 to 2:25 PMQF1 (SYD-DXB) - 3:50 PM to 0:25 AMQF9 (DXB-LHR) - 9:05 AM to 2:23 PMThese 'daylight' flights where you have a stop-over during the local sleeping time (in this case in Dubai) and arrive at your destinat...

For those of us that have had our status extended, do we get a new physical card? Does it come with luggage tags in a pack or is it just a letter? I was hoping to use it for the Qantas status match but my physical Virgin Gold card expires today (digital is up-to-date). Someone on the forums said ...

I was a little horrified too at the Virgin fees ($11.51 in my case). Use CashBack or ShopBack to recoup a little of it (the former always work though often refunds less than the full fee). Still given Virgin's recent financial performance, you might find that $11 is the best money you've ever spe...

Get your downvotes ready, but I actually don't think the QF9/10 economy experience is anything to write home about. It's a long flight in very narrow seats.It would seem I'm not alone in this opinion - one of the last letters to Traveller was complaining about the same thing. Qantas's choice to p...

The Etihad flight to Europe should be a decent offering. As VA Platinum you'll have access to the Etihad First Class Lounge & Spa (Terminal 3) - a huge step-up from the Al Reem Lounge offered to VA Gold. The staff are friendly, the onboard entertainment and food are good. Abu Dhabi has no met...

Buy YANK (strong conviction) or USD (not as strong conviction) on the ASX. Sell YANK or USD on the ASX. Transaction fees are $40 (less if you use a broker sign-up deal) but that works out 1% on $4000. There will be a small bonus $4 to $8 if you hold past July each year. Use your Citibank Plus Tra...
