• We've had to cancel numerous reservations across the Accor brand for our Europe trip May/June. We've had refunds already in the bank for a few & others still in progress. Must admit we've had to shake our heads the past few weeks reading the multitude of changing conditions applied to differe...

  • My situation is very similar to bigken; retired with plenty $$$$ in my super fund plus draw down a healthy tax-free monthly sum.

    OK...re-read this page & found the check box in the bottom LH corner of the 'book flights' tab. How silly of me to go to the 'award booking' tab which is still clearly displayed! Not convinced of improvements, so much clicking/scrolling - 10 clicks just to get to the date range...

    Thanks moa999. You've got it right, at present got silver status & this hop flying in PE, so the AA lounge is our only option. You've reassured me that we'll at least have a decent lounge....with luck it may even be less crowded than the BA lounge we've used a few times in...
