  • LATAM gets a business class refresh

    Jan 07, 2019, 05:30 AM

    Agreed, my wife actually prefers the 2-2-2 layout, as we get to interact and enjoy each other's company more throughout the flight. The suites are great for solo travellers, but terrible for going on holiday, you hardly see your partner until you arrive. At least Air New Zealand have the seat arr...

  • Only thing I will add is - yes, you can buy Airpoints Dollars, with one credit card in NZ (KiwiBank). But only worth it for small top-ups, or for partner redemptions.

  • Wine all the way thanks. I love being uncontactable for many hours at a time. I feel like it’s one of the last places you can thoroughly enjoy some private ‘me’ time.

  • Hi Chris - I noted for my LATAM flight this morning to Sydney from Auckland that the business queue had the oneworld Ruby logo on it, so I presume that you’ll also have priority boarding for them.

  • My understanding was that you need to call to book these flights at a discount and that they’re not available online.

  • Qantas Partner Classic Flight Reward

    Jun 27, 2018, 07:18 PM

    Hi all, could anyone explain to my tired brain why a Qantas Partner Classic Flight Reward, involving two segments, with two partners (e.g. Cathay Pacific and JAL), will be priced as two trips, even if there is only a transfer between the segments (e.g. a layover of <24 hours)?E.g. NRT-HKG on J...

  • Using Airpoints

    Nov 03, 2017, 03:34 PM

    Also depends on whether you’re from AU or NZ. If you’re from NZ, you can take out a Kiwibank-issued Airpoints Mastercard, and then buy Airpoints Dollars for $1 NZD each. That way, you can always top up to bridge the gap between how many APD you have and the base fare.
