• Last year i flew QF/AS SYD to SEA via SFO. From memory, it was about 2.5 hours between scheduled arrival and scheduled departure in SFO, the QF flight from SYD arrived about 20 minutes early, and they had started boarding the AS flight to SEA about 10 min prior to my arrival at the gate so i wal...

    If i’m in economy, then I am with Brandon. Get on, avoid the queue in the aerobridge, get my carry on in the overhead bin, and wait for everybody else. This applies to both domestic and international.For business class, depends upon aircraft type. For B737, as above. For larger aircraft, e...

  • Brandon, just to clarify, a person travelling on QF2 all the way to Sydney, for example, is entitled to compensation if the flight arrives more than 4 hours late into Singapore, but less than 4 hours late into Sydney.

  • Is your new credit card with the same company as the old one? If so, have a chat with them to see how they would process a refund against the old card. Your old account may be still be (internally) active until the provider is satisfied no further charges are coming. This would depend how long a...

  • If a credit card is fraudulently used, either the merchant or the credit card company is liable to reimburse the credit card holder, and neither of them want that, hence the policy of producing the credit card used to pay for the room on check in. My best guess is that this is a legal requiremen...

  • Sounds like a fraud prevention policy to me, ie making sure that the person who is paying for the room is the person who is checking in. Similar I guess to having to show a passport or drivers license when checking in. Not sure what happens if the booking is a gift, ie adult children buying a ge...
