It seems LATAM wil...

    I would recommend getting a Cash Passport MasterCard debit/ATM card that you can load with AUD and convert to Euro. If he doesn't use it all, you can withdraw it once he's back.He should have some cash on him for small purchases and emergencies. Such a card would let me make electronic purchases ...

  • It looks like EK is your best option, with one stop in DXB, QFF earning ability, and reliability (at least compared to MK).The only other option is QF via SYD to JNB, and then BA/Comair to MRU.There are otherwise no OneWorld carriers flying into MRU. Not even QR, which I found surprising.
