• A330s are flying regularly to Cairns. A SYD-CNS fare in business is $920. That's comparable to a SYD-MEL fare, but as it's a mid-haul sector, it earns 50% more status credits and points.I think it's about the best value for premium experience and QFF retention.  

  • The terms and conditions look pretty generous. The payment types that qualify include classic reward redemptions.How can I pay for the new booking?Eligible bookings can be paid with cash, Qantas TravelPass, Qantas Flight Credit, or with Qantas Points (via a Classic Flight Reward or Points Plus Pay).

  • For years I’ve had to purchase my wine or beer when flying Qantas domestic economy. They are already offering elements of buy on board. 

  • Two items means just that, two items. It’s not two plus a personal item. My observation is that ladies seem to get caught out carrying two items plus a generous hand bag, so do passengers who’ve made airport shopping purchases. If cabin baggage is weighed, everything will be put ...

  • Howard Springs has 3500 beds. When I stayed in early August, there were about 800 fellow guests. It has the space and staff to handle far more than 200.
