• Give me the name of the 5 star hotel that is supplying 3 meals per day room service for $65 and I'm there! Some of them charge $40 just for breakfast.

  • Well the issue with points refunds taking so long is that most of don't have hundreds of thousands of spare points in our account ‘just in case our international flights get cancelled and we need to book alternative flights at short notice'.

  • Emirates and Etihad will surely lose money on these flights in and out of Australia. Airport stats currently show very low numbers of incoming passengers and that isn't about to change anytime soon.
