• I didn’t get offered extra value, either extra points (can’t remember the amount but 5000 rings a vague bell) or DSCs so went with the DSCs

  • I am platinum &got a call out of the blue recently offering me additional points or double status credits on a recently cancelled domestic itinerary, redeemable any time up to 2022, so it’s definitely not urban legend. Chanced my hand and took the DSCs in the (perhaps vain) hope that I ...

  • I'm worried I walked into a trap cancelling “without penalty” a business saver fare to CHC for April. The page gave me the option of “credit” or “refund” but my fare conditions stated “no refund.” As such I chose credit, was granted it, & the voucher states I must now TRAVEL (not just redeem ...
