• "Seeking permanent residency" is totally different to business/tourist travel surely so not sure of relevance on this site?

  • One lesson learnt in all this is never use a Travel Agent again for any flights. Having to deal through them rather than directly with Qantas makes a difficult situation a nightmare

  • The status extension is significant and just because you are not a regular flyer you can still have a status upgrade plan as I did this year.

You would hope, perhaps forlornly, that there and then she would have simply said that “Cath” will be fine but do realise th...

  • Did a booking yesterday for partner and me. Entered her name as Cath rather than Catherine as appears on Passport and FF card.
