Interesting point to make when the gulf carriers are slowly cutting back costs on a lot of their offerings.Perhaps QF are trying to add a level of exclusivity to encourage more pax through this new route.

Surely J in an A330 trumps the 737 alternative or even 787 due to the lie flat options...

I've always found the quality of service and in-flight experience of AirNZ underrated. I feel they are a reasonably priced trans tas experience.It's disappointing that their partnership with VA has deteriorated.

Very valid points Chris.Fortunately work covers the cost for me to see clients in regional/remote locations.However at the prices QANTAS charge to connect to places like Mount Isa or Karratha it makes sense to use points if you are personally covering the fees. Townsville to Mount Isa return can ...

I feel the same way.Double points is nice, however double status credits would be my preference.

I understand completely.Had the exact same issue previously when I was upgraded to platinum with only 985 SC because I had to claim missing points/status.I recommend being vigilant about tracking your status credits in future and only letting Velocity know about missing points/status when yo...

I've had similar issues to some of the other posters with their website.Eventually I gave up in frustration and booked through SQ instead to maintain platinum.The reviews on their hard product are generally positive with some negative feedback directed towards their online content and some on the...
