• How important is priority boarding?

    domestic priority boarding in Australia is woeful, Virgin are miles ahead of Qantas who have the worst I have ever seen, American airlines do it much better were they call each group forward one at a time, it works reasonably well after you fight thru the waiting crowd, southwest is even a bette...

  • Agree with above the fake sites are very good! I did one on Saturday and it was approved by Monday morning when I checked back. They ask for more info now as well and have some strange passport scan process on the site, but I ignored it and it went thru ok. Some of the info slots are also bl...

  • so pretty well nothing!

  • I am Plat with both and find overall the QF lounges especially the buis ones superior to all VA lounges, they really rely on toasted sandwiches as the fare of the day all day every day.   I have always been able to grab a seat in either lounge, this is the one area that QF are clearly ahead ...
