• Not everyone. I actually dont like the idea of on board wifi. I like to live without internet for a few hours so I can catch up some rest.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...
