• Am disappointed that this offer excludes those with status end dates between Jan and Feb 2022. So had my membership year ended 30 days earlier, I would have been eligible for a free 1 year extension and 40% SC rollover till Dec 2022, but now I have to get 600 SC in 2021 to retain status through t...

  • Just as well, the VAT refund process in the UK, and many parts of the world operated by third parties are a complete shambles of an offering anyways.. 30% service fee for a tax refund plus a 15% ForEx commission anyone? I guess it’s really hard work to scan those Global Blue receipt barcode...

  • Yes but how long before the "so little deaths from corona" turn into "big deaths from corona"? 3 months ago, the US had a few hundred deaths, now they have 130,000 dead, and that's with lockdowns in place. Are we really having to explain the infectiousness of this virus?"Just lock down the unheal...

  • One has to hope that with all the social distancing requirements and the limited capacity in lounges that Qantas might favour its own FFs over other partner airlines, especially if people like QR are dishing out status matches like candy at a doctor's office.Though give the current state of thing...

  • WA's flip-flopping border policy

    Nov 15, 2020, 11:10 PM

  • Just wondering if Qantas would still consider classic upgrade rewards even if the pax is already checked in through OLCI. Friend is travelling PEK-HKG-SYD, with PEK-HKG on CX and HKG-SYD on QF. Since CX opens OLCI 48 hours in advance, and they would be checked in all the way to SYD, would QF stil...

  • I'd go Vietnam Airlines over China Southern any day. Their long-haul fleet is modern and the service is friendly - I consistently find that the onboard service delivered by VN to be excellent. Are they on par with CX, JL and NH, no, but for the low fares that you can score with them you can't com...

  • Terrible customer service in Madrid

    Dec 20, 2019, 07:20 PM

    We were just travelling from Madrid to Marrakech and thought I'd share the grossly incompetent service offered by Iberia to their premium customers.At check in, we queued up in the Business check in queue, where a single check in agent took 8mins to process a group of 3 passengers travelling on a...

  • I found the Sama Sama to be way too expensive for what I needed it for - essentially a bed and a shower, so last time I decided to try out the Capsule Time capsule hotel at klia2 - I found it to be cheap and functional - about $40 for a 6 hour stay includes luggage storage, shower facilities and ...
