• Just for the sake of clarity here - Qantas are not extending all customer's by 12 months. They're only extending those who haven't been able to renew their status by reaching the threshold. Those high spend customers like myself for example, who had already reached their P1 renewal - get nothing ...

    Not so far. I'm still waiting.

  • Coronavirus: how to self-isolate

    Will Qantas start providing complimentary toilet rolls to platinum / P1 frequent flyers as landing gifts now? If they don't I will take my business elsewhere.

  • I'm on the QF17 later this week which shows the new cabin layout. I've been waiting for this for a long time, and thrilled about the prospect of getting a really good sleep. The old Skybeds are absolutely shocking. Even with the exciting new refurb, as with any aircraft, all seats are not equal b...

  • @fergo it’s actually worse than that...You can go into the Concord lounge, even if you’re not in first. You just have to be in the BA elite tier - similar to Qantas P1. No doubt at all, the BA Concord lounges are the closest experience to our Syd / Mel / LAX First lounges with Qanta...

  • QF P1 - is it worth it?

    Feb 29, 2020, 10:17 AM

    Having been P1 for 6 years I can say overall it is noticeably different to Plat, however there is a ‘but'. If you're expecting the red carpet to be rolled out, or any special treatment onboard then you'll be disappointed. There isn't any. If you consistently travel a lot, and by this I mean year ...

  • Bloody appalling. That's the last straw. I'm getting rid of my phone now.Thieves.

  • Using Overseas Travel Agency

    Jan 11, 2020, 11:08 AM

    There is nothing wrong with using travel providers / agents from countries overseas at all. We do it all the time, as you can often get much more competitive fares in comparison to Australia if you are ticketing out of those countries in their local currency. Particularly so in the USA / UK.Exac...

  • Would you drink aircraft tank water?

    Oct 25, 2019, 08:11 AM

    As we were getting the cabin ready for landing on a recent QF94, I went back to the galley and asked for my water bottle to be filled up. I was unfortunate to get a very irritated FA, who used the tank water tap, instead of using the larger bottled water which they normally do. She said the water...

  • I think you'll find this is called a ‘courtesy block' and typically only available to P1's in my experience. Also worth noting it is not ‘guaranteed'It is only ever available in Economy, and if you've been getting it as a Platinum then you're lucky. Someone has...
