• Qantas launches Lifetime Platinum

    Jun 20, 2019, 12:16 PM

    I was somewhat excited when I saw the headline as I, foolishly, thought it would be something like 28,000 credits. That seems fair considering that would be around 20 years of Platinum. My reaction to the number is similar to this scene from Austin Powers.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Qy5H...

  • What's the 'sweet spot' for status?

    This is a tough one in the short term. I have been QF platinum/lifetime gold for a number of years. I'm also VA gold. To be honest, I'm considering the letting myself drop back to gold until something changes, such as lifetime suddenly Platinum appearing or the QF offering & pricing comi...

  • Rio's second airport, Santos Dumont, has to be up there. Take off involves flying straight at Sugar Loaf Mountain followed by a hard bank to the right to avoid it! Landing is pretty crazy too!!

    Has anyone flown SYD-SCL lately? Is it a refurbed 747 or are there still old F seats on the lower deck?

  • Does anyone have information on how Qatar will fit into to the QF/Oneworld point/ sc structure? Contemplating booking with them to Milan early next year on their outrageously cheap earlybird fare, but don't want to get stiffed by QF on the points earning rates!
