I've done three in the last eighteen months; one to Fiji, one from the States & one from Europe (though that was less than four hours).

@Madison177204 I flew EY First ZRH-AUH then First Apartment AUH-SYD a little over a month ago with my partner's booking made using AA points (they're a partner of EY - unusual, I know) & mine using my EY points. They had no problem with me travelling in the chauffeur with him (as I was not el...

Oh seriously David, come on; @smit0847's comment ultimately derives from the topic that you instigated in this article! You write a piece entitled, "Should you tip the staff in US airport lounges" and then get all narky when someone follows through by making (what you feel is a judgmental) commen...

Yes, it does. It has specific searches available for codeshares and/or alliances. For the latter part of your question, yes also; however, you must search for an award seat to be available with the carrier whose metal you will be flying on e.g. a Virgin Velocity award redemption for a flight on E...

Although the immigration line at DFW is at times visually very long, they are indeed efficient and certainly friendlier than other ports; they are used the Qantas big bus arriving & plow through everyone expeditiously. Agreed also for D.C. that Reagan is definitely better to fly in or out of ...
Oct 06, 2017, 10.10 AM / Sydney to Washington: Qantas or American Airlines?
I ultimately think your postulation is bang on, TRB. They are very much sympatico with both the QF/JQ and VA/TT situation of wanting to ensure they have blanket coverage of a region in both a LCC AND full service sense, while ensuring that only their LCC offspring services the ports that require ...

The QF A380 Y class does not need an upgrade of anything - as someone who has flown it a dozen times, I can say unashamedly it still rates up there. I can rarely get through every movie & TV show on their IFE that I want to and, as several people have pointed out, anyone who is prepared will ...

Short answer - no. Once the door of the plane closes, the chance to change your FF number in the reloc expires.
