SYD -> BNE -> TSV J return = 400 SC and only $2400 or less with points plus pay. Leave at 7am on a Saturday and you’re back by 5ish. And you get a great hamburger for lunch at the Townsville Brewery. 😀

Did the Iberia A330 J last year. Very nice seat and great Spanish tapas plates! These seats do look very similar to the untrained eye

A bit disappointed that the QF BNE lounge has no tarmac views any more. I know it was taken over by the business lounge most recently but now it’s only got a car park view. Was in Melbourne last week too and it looks like the QF club will also lose any outward view once that massive wall i...

Could it be that’s the CX website is horrible for bookings! I tried to book on there in the past and being able to get the price advertised was as bad as clicking each individual flight combination to find it. In the end I went back and booked with QF.Fix the website and people may actuall...

If you booked and paid for a service and didn't get it - yes you can get compensation. There's some really tight rules in the EU to protect consumers, much more than The ACCC has in place for us - you can even get a refund for things like Skype over there but in Aus you can't!

Don’t count on it. Last week I ended up at Burger King after Alaska Airlines declined me for entry in SeaTac.I would go for American Airlines flights since it’s Oneworld and you won’t have any lounge entry issues on AA flights. (Even AA codeshares don’t allow lounges)
May 19, 2018, 04.46 PM / US Domestic Lounge Access
Hit and miss for me - been there about a dozen times and most of the time it's ok but around 40% of the time it's so busy that the plane boards again before they get to cross me off the waiting list.Hot tip from when QF used to fly there - which ever side of the lounge the flight re-boards from, ...

Short answer is no. No wifi so no audio or video.Long answer is if you’re high status ask the cabin manager to ask the pilots nicely if they can tune in when they have a light workload. It sounds at odds to what everyone believes but pilots do have some time during cruise where things aren...

A philosophical post today! 😀So I am in Seattle at the moment and did the Boeing factory tour this morning - I was surprised to know that Qantas has purchased 6%+ of the worlds 747 production. It’s a small percentage but still a huge number (it’s 50+) compared to other airli...
