• I thought about canceling my cards as well. However, as Chris have suggested in the article, it's good to keep some flexible currencies like Amex MR. That's the reason I haven't cancelled my Explorer yet (but I have certainly canceled my Edge). Cancelling cards like Amex to just get bonus on QF p...

  • Sign up bonus isnt as easy to get as before. The recent changes on "responsible lending" makes applying credit much more difficult. I recently got rejected by ANZ black, and St George. This has never happened before. In fact I had ANZ black twice before for their sign up bonus and never had probl...

  • It's also better for NH's aircraft utilization. Currently that 787 just sits in the tarmac in SYD for the whole day wasted.

  • The approval is conditional right? Maybe the condition is to ask VA not to pull out the route for 10 years. Otherwise it is so unfair to BNE/QLDer when we had a good chance of having NH and JL coming back to BNE. Now VA took the spot, JL and NH will go to other cities. In 18 months if VA drop the...

  • It'll be A350. Destitute Chang being a 777 pilot and his passion for Boeing, due to the complex relationship (enmity to be exact) he had with EVA, he chose to go with all Airbus fleet. So yeah, it was a mistake on the CG. Maybe the image was created when they designed the livery and assuming that...

  • Are you looking for status or miles for redemption? If status, consider Turkish Miles & Smile. It's also another one that's easy to attain star gold and valid for 24 months. If for redemption miles, it's hard to beat Krisflyer, and Lifemiles us also quite useful as well IMHO

  • My guess is that it's highly likely. After they shift the MEL flight to HND, they have one extra slot for NRT. Perfect for another SYD-NRT flight.

  • Forget velocity. I've given up on them 3 years ago. VA used to be very generous in releasing award seats to LAX. That's not the case anymore. You might be able to snatch a seat or two in the next week or so but nothing much pass 14 days. Even with partners, they've added crazy surcharges in Etiha...

  • There are several credit cards in Australia that earns AM. The best ones are Amex cards. The best earn rate (apart from invitation only Centurion) is Platinum charge card. It earns 1.125 AM per dollar spent (except government spent which only earns 0.5 AM). But it also has a hefty $1450 annual fe...
