I get the sense that QF may have over thought these vouchers. The whole thing with having to list how many passengers on the voucher seems unnecessarily complex. Is there something I'm missing?I remember chatting to a staffer from HA or GA, (who don't do vouchers,) and suggesting they just organi...

Every leadership course I've ever done, (which is a few,) has always made some reference to leading by example. I refuse to call politicians leaders because of perks and policies like this. I'm not suggesting that MP's should have to pay for travel they do as part of being an MP. However...

An earlier poster made an interesting point, that the ME3’s major market are budget travellers who want the bargain hunters. I’m not as such against the introduction of PE as much as I am aware of the impact that introducing PE has on the economy tickets. You only have to looks at the US3 ...

Nice review. Is the $200 credit on the Platinum Edge card new? It looks like they've swapped it in and ended the simple 'free domestic return flight every year' thing which is a shame. I suppose it is still there as you could cash in the $200 for the flight you would have used for the freebie and...

Does anyone know if Star Alliance and SkyTeam have a similar rule to OneWorld, that says if you hold a business class ticket you can use any of that alliances lounges in the port you are departing from?

Just wanted to see if anyone has flown through HNL on the way back home to Australia before and what their thoughts on the best lounge is. I'm a Qantas Club Bronze, but heard Qantas Club members had their choice of the AA or QF lounge?

There are a few new services like travel app 'As You Stay' designed for transit passengers who only need to book for a few hours. However, the promise of saving on a nice hotel by paying for the 18 hours you need, rather then standard rates does not always seem to hold true.Sometimes the rates yo...

As a previous poster mentioned (AA not being allowed to sell purely domestic Aussie itineraries,) perhaps it's only a trick for international routes. Or is this just an Aussie thing?I wonder if I was going NYC to Miami (MIA) return on Delta (DL) and found the same flight with CZ codes, if it woul...

Good point Brinkers. What if it were a QF flight bought as a JQ code?
Nov 11, 2016, 09.23 AM / Flights Cheaper if Bought on a Code Share?
Does anyone know if you save anything by buying a flight under it's code share, rather then it's original name? That is, say I want a ticket on QF422, would it make any difference price, points or status wise if I went through the American Airlines website/system and bought the ticket as AA7...
