• Bacl in the early 2000s approx 03/04 QF went direct to BOM that service back then was hit and miss direct for pax numbers hence why they stopped it. Back then it was run by A333 so would expect the same aircraft type to be used again if and when they go direct to India

  • I got the Velocity voice email last week and responded it needs to look at a style similar to Club Marriott/ IHG Ambassador/ Accor Plus as options of what benefits it could offer along with the possibility of adding a membership to one of those prorams as a benefit of the VA Offering. 2 Lounge pa...

  • Try an app like expertflyer and put the details in it can give you an idea or look at the seat selection map on QF website

  • BUPA if your with Velocity, BP on Feul and instore on occasions has had double points, transferring of points from supermarket partners for both QFF (Woolies) and Velocity (Coles/ Flybuys). Always good to look on Velocity page as they have bonus offers displayed and updated regularly.

  • Also look for Promo codes on sites like OzBargin, Life/ Flight hacks can sometimes also get a discount to around $750 return to AKL with Domestic leg involved.
