Virgin Australia, United Airlines partnership takes to the skyApr 23, 2022, 12:06 PM
Not a too bad advice to check with Velocity, have done that too and got a reply but as expected you don't get anything tangible and they saying "nothing can be shared" - wrapped in the usual nice "customer experience is our most important" etc. Frustrating :(
Virgin Australia, United Airlines partnership takes to the skyApr 17, 2022, 07:51 PM
Anyone knowledgeable on this: When they start the partnership in "late May" - do they make it retrospective, will one be able to credit earlier flights done with United to Virgin's Velocity?I have a flight to US coming up early-mid May, would be a waste to credit this to Unite's MileagePlus. Coul...

New benefits for Qantas flyers as Fiji Airways joins Oneworld ConnectDec 08, 2018, 03:21 PM
The news on the OneWorld webpage has a overview table that says that Sapphire and Emerald have access to "select" lounges. Maybe just some miscommunication/typo that QF members on FJ flight number don't get access?Here's the link to the news on the OneWorld page: https://de.oneworld.com/news-info...
Qantas Lounge Access When Flying JetstarMar 06, 2023, 05:15 PM
Yes you can. I just did similar last week, MEL - Queenstown and they let you in.It's also listed as a separate category on the Qantas lounge access page, there was a table with QF/Oneworld/EK/JQ flight number and who has access when.But only allowed when Qantas has an own lounge. If not a QF fli...
Duration of Hilton Diamond gifted as Velocity PlatinumJan 23, 2023, 12:54 AM
I grabbed Diamond through Velocity in 2018, ~June. In January 2019 Hilton downgraded me to Silver (which I had with the days stayed) and I complained through Hilton & Velocity and they reinstated it and it lasted for the whole of 2019 (so 1.5 years in total). If that was a glitch or just the...
What is going on with ticket prices on Qantas?Sep 16, 2022, 01:25 PM
It doesnt just look to be that. Throughout QF prices are higher than others. Whenever I looked at anything. Be it domestic or international.Probably they are just bold & confident enough that people will pay it, relying on their corporate market and their brand name. I can just hope that more...
Bag tagging/check-through for whole journey incl. non-Qantas flightsMay 06, 2022, 12:22 PM
So, I've done the trip and yes, Qantas does everything, from check-in over boarding pass print & US-formalities (Covid etc.) and luggage check-through for United. So that was the very convenient part.If Sydney wouldn't be such a big f... mess with departure for international travels and 2+ hr...

Hi all,I have a trip coming up that's a mix of Qantas for Mel-Syd and then onwards to US with United. (If Qantas wouldn't be 1.5x of United's costs they could have got the whole trip ...)It's booked through a Business travel agency and Qantas knows the whole itinerary and it's even visible in my ...
