"Qantas don’t have a First lounge anywhere where they don’t offer an F service, and apart from Auckland they don’t offer “premium” lounges for top tier frequent flyers, and this will soon disappear at Auckland with the renovation anyway, so I’m not surpris..."
"I use my ING debit card which has (as do all debit cards) a much better exchange rate than all travel money cards, along with no ATM or transaction fees. I also use my debit card to withdraw a small amount of cash when I land in a foreign country, I never exchange cash in Australia. I’ll g..."
"I've stayed at Tune Hotel and can attest that it's worth the price. Almost identical in room size and layout to an Ibis, and cost me about $90. A good night's sleep, a shower, then a bowl of laksa nearby made for a most enjoyable 12 hour layover."
"I am a medical professional (so I fly infrequently for conferences, and a few times a year for leisure, but nowhere near the extent of a business traveller) who is unlikely to ever achieve above my current gold FF status, so I guess the card is aimed at someone similar to my demographic, however ..."
"Your new booking earns you MORE status credits and you want compensation because your flight departs 20 minutes earlier (yet still solidly late-morning at 11.10am) ?? Let us know how you go with that!"
"I would get them allocated separately - one to you and one directly to your partner. That is what I do when I gift my unused passes to family. And yes you would be eligible to use the Qantas lounge in London for that flight, as it's a QF flight number, assuming the time of the flight matches up w..."
"For someone who is a self-proclaimed trained aviation consultant and university-educated LCC guru it is surprising that you don’t know how to use a points calculator or the airline earning tables on the Qantas website, or that Haneda is significantly closer to central Tokyo than Narita. I&..."
"I’ve flown business on jetstar to japan and Bali before and found it perfectly fine. I’ve also flown PE on the qantas 747 and it’s also perfectly fine - however for that much price difference I’d go Jetstar. It’s still very easy to get to the city from Narita, d..."

"Originally Posted by Bob Burgess You certainly can use the economy loos but let me be brutally honest. Apart from the loos being cramped the economy lavs tend to be pretty messy the further into a flight you get! I'd rather stay in my seat up front and wait for a business class loo. Yes us uncou..."
"Yeah it’s their fault one of their planes was shot down with a surface-to-air missile launched by rebel militia! (Sarcasm)I’ve flown Malaysian before and after aforementioned well-known incidents and wouldn’t hesitate to again."
"Staying at the Westin on its opening night next week... will report back. Otherwise the new Emporium is fantastic, the W, The Calile, Ovolo Inchcolm and Art Series Johnson are all excellent choices. Those who say brisbane is lacking in the hotel scene must be basing this on a lack of Park Hyatt..."
