I made it to LTG several years ago now. After many years of Platinum and the last 5 years as Platinum One where I allocated my travel spend 95% Qantas/One World and 5% to other airlines, however in the absence of Lifetime Platinum, my travel is now 95% other airlines and 5% Qantas. If Qantas wa...

Great review Chris, thanks. I'm curious about the range of wines available in Business on your flight, was it a mix of Aussie and US reds? What was the quality like?

I agree that it is service that makes the difference. The best Club lounge I have experienced is at the Intercontinental hotel in Kuala Lumpur. Great friendly service, , good seating with ample power points, excellent snacks and 'meal of the day' as well as decent drinks. So many 5 star lounge...

I have been QF Platinum One and LTG for several (4+) years now but I think Platinum for now and Lifetime Gold is the sweet spot. This will be my last year as P1 as now there is zero incentive to remain flying with QF. If there was the option of Lifetime Platinum then I would continue ...

Yes you were being perfectly reasonable. I have experienced the same thing recently. I can't believe how some people think that we want to hear their business conversations!!
Nov 13, 2018, 08.51 PM / Am I being reasonable?
I received the email too. I'm Platinum status btw.
Oct 25, 2018, 09.33 AM / Did Qantas just invite everybody to join the Chairman's Lounge?
Think very carefully about P1. I was P1 with Qantas for 5 years and the difference from being Platinum was minimal. It was good when things went pear shaped but apart from that the difference in service etc was minimal.

Over many airlines over many flights I find Qantas to be the worst in the world and Air New Zealand to be the best.
Jul 24, 2017, 05.47 PM / Do 'priority' luggage tags make a difference?
I agree with others to sit on the A side of the aircraft. I have seen ice and Antarctica several times on this route although this was about 5 years ago now. I was able to take some amazing photos out of the windows in Business class. Good luck!!!!!!!!!!!!
