• Will this flow through to points booking prices for broader oneworld bookings or just for their members?

  • Agree the $10 wouldn't be a decision tipping point Russh7.My main point is that I don't see Essendon providing a sufficiently different experience for people than Tullamarine. For much the same cost you get a simpler boarding experience but you lose on board service, status and points that each h...

  • 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...

  • Lax first seriously overrated - flagship for sure.

  • This is why oneworld exists

  • 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.
