• That's not quite right Russh7As at right now Glen Iris to Essendon is 27 minutes and to Moorabbin is 23. Acknowledged that it is not currently peak hour and times wound change if it was, but equally it is not a “freeway” between Glen Iris and Essendon - tolls are payable for the entire journey if...

  • The logical market for these guys from Melbourne is Moorabbin airport. Lots of big employers in the south east who lose over an hour of productivity each time an employee has to get to/from the airport, not to mention up to $150 in one way taxi fares. The incremental gain of Essendon is minimal a...

  • Unless flying routes internationally that are not well serviced by OneWorld, stick to one

  • They'll likely off you a retain for 120k points. I chose not to go with it and use the points for a business flight instead. As a tip, if you are going to do the same, get the reward flight booked while platinum- My experience is that service standards drop heaps once you are gold.

  • Bizarrely, I just googled for it as well and it popped up with a “congratulations, you are now registered message”. Of course the offer is closed so a moot point - I definitely don't recall getting the offer. I've been waiting/hoping for one too, so will be ann...

  • Given this from February this year, a bit hard for Qantas to take a moral stand...Qantas Airways will fork out thousands of dollars in backpay after discovering an "embarrassing" bungle that saw it short-change dozens of workers, while overpaying others.
