• Great news! We had booked a RTW trip through OneWorld partners & primarily QR (albeit having to cancel due to the pandemic). Hopefully they can get approval for BNE (my home airport) so when we can travel, I can jump straight on to them

    I had a trip booked to ADL for next week which would have retained my Gold - just had to cancel due to meeting restrictions being put in place.

  • I like the ease of use with the Q Tags but have found that my bags do not come out in any particular order - and generally not as one of the first (Gold status). Interestingly enough, before I was Gold, my bags more often than not would be one of the first out - with a Silver Q Tag attached. Go f...

  • Likewise, I've always used the $10 day pass from Telstra without any issue (USA, Europe, NZ, Asia). Very convenient & simple in not having to change sims, notify of different numbers, etc. Phone immediately connects to relevant carrier when I turn it on upon arrival. I generally use WiFi &...
