    So Qantas want to charge people $45 to sit towards the front of the economy cabin in a long haul international flight but they'll still be a few rows behind premium frequent flyers anyway? Who would pay for that?

  • It’s always good to have more options for rewards partners. Bangkok Airways is particularly unexpected and welcomed - a great airline and often quite high prices due to their private partnerships with some Thai airports creating a monopoly, such as Koh Samui.

  • The hyperbole in this thread is hilarious. There are certainly issues with the new Qantas Club in Melbourne but it's a darn sight better than the old one, and for a domestic lounge network the Qantas Club and Business Lounges are amongst the world's best. As for the comment about the food resembl...

  • A very poor value card in my opinion. No payWave or Apple Pay either, to add insult to injury.

  • AirAsia's business class is a bit of a joke and wouldn't hold a candle to even Jetstar's business class, despite the lack of a lie-flat bed on Jetstar. You get one economy class meal replete with foil tray and plastic cutlery, and a mini-sized bottle of water, and that is literally it. No soft dr...

    One day back on this website and the whinging, self-entitlement and selfishness of its members has already annoyed me. I am a doctor (dual specialty in infectious diseases and acute care general medicine) and there is no way sleep apnoea or any respiratory condition should classify as a medical e...

  • I wouldn't. Bear in mind that with the latest recommendations announced today you'll have to self-quarantine yourself for 14 days upon arrival back in Australia if you touch down in China even for a stopover.It's also worth noting the virus is droplet spread, not airborne (in the medical sense) s...
