This is a hypothetical question, resulting from a chat I was having with a fellow traveller.While Qantas themselves can obviously adjust your points balance, we pondered if banks (and other third-party points providers) had the ability to request or insist that Qantas revoke / claw back QFF point...

The harsh cabin environment on longhaul flights makes your skin very dry, so you might opt for a facial massage. They'll use a range of products that moisturise and protect skin from the surprisingly brutal effects of recycled air conditioning. Unlike a neck or back massage, a facial treatment is...
