• My situation is very similar to bigken; retired with plenty $$$$ in my super fund plus draw down a healthy tax-free monthly sum. I'm QF gold f/f, take several o/s bus class trips a year, last year started returning from Europe in first class, so spend quite a bit of money with Qantas annually. I ...

    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...

    Which screen has this little check box in the top rh? On & off since 10am I've been looking for Frankfurt & Paris & they don't appear in the destination drop down box in the award bookings screen. Tried ringing QF but there's over a 10min wait. Assume everyone's got sim...

    I'm curious to know if, when I have redeemed points for a flight, the airline staff I come in contact with (eg check in, cabin crew) can tell. Does anyone know if this sort of detail is "flagged" in any way?

    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...

    Have any Qantas Club members experienced the American Airlines lounge at Heathrow while waiting for QF2 back to Sydney?
