"You should be able to access lounges with your FF status. As long as your on oneworld flights you have access. Especially when traveling economy and relying on a different carriers status I would advise carrying your physical Qantas FF card. You shouldn’t need it. But I’ve been aske..."
"It may be complete coincidence. In which case I apologise. But I always get a little nervous when at least two happy cheerleaders for this company are first time ever posters. And they just happen to be big fans of Qflyer. They may be genuine. But I would certainly treat that with the appropriate..."
"Your key phrase relating to pricing is ‘to the states’. Was actually talking to a Doctor friend last night. He has a minor medical condition which impacts his annual travel insurance policy. At most recent renewal his insurer suggesting removing coverage for the US and the premium d..."
"Wouldn’t claim to be an expert on all *A schemes as for me SQ is the only one that makes practical sense. The only thing I’d add is to what extent you may value things such as the PPS Club. Depends entirely on which routes you may fly, etc. but it offers some advantages if you are a..."
"Originally Posted by worldwanderer Australian culture is generally egalitarian in nature and understand some of the responses here.However, QF could quickly resolve the discontent and grumbling by either delivering on the implied promise or not making the promise at all."Rules" are rules and if ..."
"Originally Posted by stmaus VA's credit card fee is reasonable and reflects the cost to them of processing the payment. They do give you non-fee payment options. It's less than QF. I don't see what is the problem. If VA are actually paying their bank (or technically merchant service provider) vi..."
"Out of interest do they still charge this if you use a 'Qantas' credit card? I used to have a BA issued amex back in the day and it irked me no end when they charged you for using 'their' credit card.This is clearly a profit centre for them, because most people will use a credit card (frankly you..."
"Johnny9 - I would be interested in the responses you get. I am by no means an expert here, but the risk factor you must consider is that you are breaking the rules of carriage for the airline and they can then seek redress. If, for example, you are a Qantas FF then they 'may' be able to 'punish' ..."
"Good luck with that. I’m not sure your request is even half reasonable. I know if I was taking someone to the airport that for 20 mins earlier I could probably just shift my alarm clock."
"OttoV - As others have mentioned, try them all. My personal picks would be the CX or QF lounges, but given he time you're there (and the fact that the best part of the QF lounge for me is the bar) you may want to go to the CX lounge. As an aside, you don't mention your FF status (if any), but if ..."
"Interline agreement should allow bags through to destination. Though this would relate to flights made on same booking as your QF flight that includes a flydubai leg. If your booking is solely flydubai then you’ll get no other benefits. Nearest analogy is that as a One World Emerald with B..."
"@watson374 - you clearly have better recollection of your infant travels than I do!! On a more serious note, it shouldn’t count against your allowance if checked in. In my (adult) experience of flying with a stroller (for the heir to the debt) I’d suggest that a proper carry case is..."
"Whilst not a gym, there is a swimming pool at Changi that can be used in transit. Never done so myself (that or a glass or two of champagne is not a difficult choice for me) but I’ve heard it’s ok."
"As long as you’re on the same ticket then all good. It makes no difference who the second flight is with as long as it’s on the same ticket. The fact that BA is, like Qantas, in One World is interesting but irrelevant in this situation. If you were / are on seperate tickets, if your..."
"Rimowa are hard to beat on quality. I’ve used Briggs & Riley for many years. Big fan. Lifetime guarantee and very tough. It’s all down to personal preference of course, but I prefer not to have the hard case. Mrs Ourmanin’s Samsonite hard case of many years (and flights) ..."
