Would be ok for airlines like Emirates at Dubai when you go straight from lounge to plane, but walking past a starbucks on your way to the jetbridge... not for me thanks.

I think it’s a bit of a stretch thinking business travelers would walk through the terminal and board a flight in pajamas from the lounge... happy to be corrected, but I definitely am not one of them.

What happens if booked through Qantas?

How sterile and dull does this look? Would be nice to see some plants/greenery, natural finishes and some warmth... this looks incredible cold and uninviting.
Nov 14, 2015, 02.43 AM / Preview: Virgin Australia's new Perth Airport business class lounge
I must say, Qantas is leaps and bounds above any domestic airline I have flown. I live in the US, and when I come home to Australia and fly domestically, it is dramatically better than anything in the US or Europe. From the hassle free smarter faster check-in, to the domestic lounges (which are ...

Don't switch to any Australian program - they all have huge taxes and fees and the amount of points required for redemption bookings is often 50% more than in the US.Stick with a US program, even if you earn less, it is still worth it!

I flew on a LATAM A350 JFK-GRU a couple of months ago and the toilet door was already having issues closing... Not sure what is going on!?!

I believe you will have to clear customs and immigration - whether or not you have carry on or checked bags. As far as I know, anytime you go through the US you have to do this.If you were on a flight from within the US you can just go to your next gate as there is no exit immigration in the US, ...

The best part of the Aussie Amex MR program is the ability to transfer to SPG at around 2 MR Gateway: 1SPG. You can then transfer to lots of different airlines from there. Might take a little longer, but in the US, you can only transfer to SPG at 3:1 which is terrible.
Apr 24, 2018, 04.01 AM / Will AMEX Membership Rewards add more frequent traveller partners, like to hear all your thoughts...
You need to search for CLASSIC award seats, not an any time award seat. On the QF website, ensure you are checking the box that is "Use points - Classic Flight Rewards only" As the "Use money, points or both" is an anytime award seat, meaning any seat on any flight is available, but the amount of...
