I get the business case, but this is really a poor move. Jetstar is the low cost option, and it should remain that way. It starts with the trans Tasman business, then before we know it, it will be across the entire network. QF should wait and see what happens with the break up of the Virgin / Ai...
May 24, 2018, 08.52 AM / Qantas is looking at 'buy on board' for meals, inflight movies
I totally agree with henrus, I think as part of these enhancements, SQ needs to open up seat selection for velocity gold and platinum. The process of booking a flight with VA, then ringing VA to get the SQ PNR number, followed by requesting either Window or Isle, is a turn off when booking a VA ...

Its very sad. Every premium option Eithad use to have is going. The Lounge in Sydney use to be a rival to Qantas 1st, but now its just another lounge. My company has us fly Economy globally, and as VA Platinum, Eithad was the preferred partner (SQ lounge access can be quite limited in Europe wh...

Very disappointing. I have been VA Platnium for 4 years now. My confidence with Velocity is getting less and less, especially now my business travel is more international then domestic. The NZ service to the east coast of the US via Houston was a great alternative to LAX, especially w...
Jul 11, 2017, 09.50 AM / Virgin Australia cuts points, status credits earning on AirNZ
It depends on your travel. I have been Platinum with Virgin for 4 years now, which was perfect for the Domestic travel and yearly trips to Asia / NZ. But my new job's travel is Europe and NAM, so I have decided to stick to QF / Emirates for Europe travel so I can get my lifetime gold ...

Thanks all. Based on the above, I am reading that:-SYD to KUL - against a business fare I will earn status credits at economy rate.KUL to MAA - against a business fare I will earn status credit at business rate. I am asking the question as this trip should push me to Platinum status with QF. I ...

Hi all,Was just trying to look up the number of status points for a up coming trip to India. I was looking at flying MH. For some reason, the Qantas frequent flyer calculator will only let me look up MH Economy on Syd-Kul sector, but business on the KUL to India sector. Anyone know why?Cheers.

I have had lots of issues and delays getting SC and Points. It seems to take forever with VA intl flights, but when it comes to DL and SQ flights, I get them within a few days. The worse is EY, where I never seem to get the right points or SC. It can be frustrating, and the Velocity team have ...

This is becoming a pain. I live in the south eastern suburbs of Sydney, and it has happened to me twice in the last 3 months. The User driver has pulled up and seen my luggage, has cancelled the trip and driven off. This use to happen to me before Uber started with Taxis (Especially when get...
