• Excellent. This makes me want to fly QF more.

  • QLD has now eased the restriction earlier than expected from midday 3 July. Does that mean BNE/OOL/CNS lounge may open too? Especially QLD is the holiday destination for many people during the cold winter.

  • I was there in March and EL was already closed. They gave me voucher for 2 drinks per day plus 1 set of canape in tue bar. Breakfast was offered at the restaurant but it strictly continental, the choices was very limited as there wasn't even cold cut meat. Just fruits, cereals and breads. Then it...

  • Points are fairly quick. In my experience about a week, taxes can take a bit longer, about 6-8 weeks. That is for Qantas points. For Velocity, currently they wont refund any points until further instruction with administrators. Asiamiles is also pretty quick. Points back within 4 weeks, but taxes...

  • Why are your family still stuck overseas? They should've made their way back from last Thursday.Anyway, AFAIK, ANA is still flying to SYD post Apr 1 and you can still transit in Japan. Not much else left I think.

  • Contact QF, and if award available they might be kind enough to change the itinerary without penalty.
