"Good tip Pabs, same thing happened to a friend of mine, his sister is a pharmacist and gave him some pills for a long trip and it kept him awake the whole way, funny thing was he offered one to the pax in the seat next to him and he fell fast asleep instantly and snored the whole trip."
"I rang QF about it as I had booked a flight for my son who doesn’t have a FF number and when the booking reminder came through it said 1x 0 kg allowance, the call centre has been swamped with calls apparently about the same issue. The 0kg is for any additional allowance over the normal 1 p..."
"Depends if the SC will get you to a level or help towards lifetime status etc,I just paid $900 return airfare TSV-DRW which earns 60 status credits so to me your $720 for 450 SC is a bargain, if it provides some value."
"I recently had to cancel a points booking because I couldn’t get to the airport with the floods in Townsville, I was happy to cop whatever fee was applicable but instead of cancelling the booking the very helpful lady on the phone put a credit against my account for the points booking to b..."
"Even worse is when they queue in the aisle waiting to use the toilet, it’s something the staff could easily address and tell them to go down the back."
"They will still have to have paper for different occaions, children unaccompanied, prisoners under transit, those sorts of things and also times when the scanners etc simply don’t work, we have all stood there before whilst the scanner just doesn’t work and they have to hand out bo..."
"The biggest issue is airlines rolling it out across its entire fleet of aircraft, instead of having big holes like we have with QF and it’s 717’s. I am sure airlines will still have gaps in older aircraft as well, where they don’t see value in the cost of installations. I sti..."
"Getting to the airport is not really an airlines responsibility, they have only moved your flight forward by 20 mins, and if you want to haggle with QF about the 5 status credits then see how you go."
"Stay was mid last year Nellycoo, I spend a lot of time in Cairns and actually prefer the Doubletree over the Hilton, closer to a lot of the restaurants I like and you are right on the Esplanade, get a room overlooking the ocean, the Hilton is tucked away, if you are getting a car then parking is..."
"These things are always subjective, if you stayed at Hilton Cairns or Darwin you would probably think the opposite, poor product and average service, not even a bottle of water in the fridge, just terrible for what they say is 4-5 Stars, they obviously put a lot more effort into their capital cit..."
"Seems to be a growing issue, many of our middle management have asked the CEO and GM to reconsider our QF only policy due to many of the issues raised here, especially the poor service."
"AKL is a pain at the best of times, I have been trying to organise a trip from TSV - AKL with points for the family but once you put 2 + 2 in the list your options dissapear and in general terms once you get a 2 legged trip your options limit even further , which for those of us in TSV is every t..."
"Got more sign up bonus points than I should have with a new credit card a few years ago, I would say it’s a bank error more than QF because not only were the points more than they should have been but they were deposited before I even used the card and hadn’t met minimum spend yet."
