  • Funny to see the two chains swapping properties with Hilton -> Pullman and Citigate -> Doubletree in the same city at roughly the same time.

    Dec 01, 2014, 01.45 PM / New DoubleTree by Hilton Melbourne: Flinders Street hotel opens

  • Awesome! With the Melbourne announcements, it looks like SPG is in the running for me to replace Accor as a domestic chain of choice!

    Jan 30, 2014, 12.46 PM / Brisbane returns to the Starwood map as Four Points by Sheraton opens

  • 2 decade lead time? Maybe the French Government isn't too different from ours (Sydney Airport expansion, Melbourne Airport rail?)

    Feb 12, 2014, 07.47 AM / What times does the Qantas First Class lounge close?

Oneworld status with any other frequent flyer program won't be recognised as far as I am aware, however as you are in business class, your ticket will entitle you access to the Qa...

    Feb 11, 2014, 10.19 PM / What times does the Qantas First Class lounge close?

  • I usually just fly to BNE and drive down these days - way better frequency of service, and it doesn't take THAT much longer to drive to Surfer's from BNE than it does from OOL... I wonder if OOL can really sustain that many services/routes with that many airlines?

    Feb 06, 2014, 08.59 AM / Word in the lounge is that Qantas is ramping up OOL ops– Adding a MEL service and extra SYD.

  • If the only objective of your taking flights and maintaining Qantas Platinum status was just to use the First Class lounge, wouldn't you prefer to just take your pick of fine dining restaurant and day spa every now and then?
