• I wonder if Qantas will consider making the SYD-JFK leg direct, that would be a nearly bearable 17 hours, while retaining, possibly, a Vancouver stop on the way home. CX pulled out of Vancouver, thus it could be a decent fifth freedom option too, while also bypassing LAX.

  • why do you declare "Virgin would need to roster one of its six Airbus A330s to Tokyo" - they have 777-300 er's which arent making money flying to Los Angeles.

  • so does this now mean they goto haneda three times a day? i thought they were only allowed 2?does this also mean that a 787 is going to sit in haneda for 12 hours? surely not

  • i heard that they are going to reduce the points needed for classic rewards by 10%, but triple the taxes.

  • Flew Delta One Business from HNL-NGO last month, fanstastic experience. Not at all ideal for couples/families but clearly this isnt the targer market.

  • I cancelled an award booking using Qantas points for an Emirates flight yesterday. Annoyingly, you cant usually cancel these online, you need to call, for which I waited 4 hours.They were happy to cancel the flight and refund the taxes and ALL points, there was no penalty at all.Just to be clear...

  • i have an almost identical situation, FCO-ADL early May with Qatar using QF points.Rang Qatar to change, they said they couldnt, - ring Qantas.I assume Qantas wont be able to change it to any date i want unless there are award seats available (of which they are none).

  • Through my experience recently, the confirmation came back with an "ON HOLD" and no e-ticket number.Three weeks on, and its still on hold. When I called Velocity, they said that the seat wasnt available and didnt know why their website was showing that it was.Very, very frustrating.

  • Be careful with Velocity. They display phantom SQ seats that aren't bookable . I have learned the hard way recently . Even if they show seats available you won't get it confirmed - your advised to check availability on KtisFlyer before booking.

  • Terrible treatment on QF3
