As a QFF Platinum and a Singapore PPS I now avoid flying with Qantas to Australia as the lounge is too crowded. It is not the only consideration when purchasing a ticket but a significant one.
Jun 07, 2018, 10.27 AM / Qantas is turning travellers away from overcrowded Singapore lounge
Another own goal by Qantas. I am a 2400-3000 status a year person with about two thirds on Qantas. The latest change means that once a get to platinum I will change to another airline. Qantas are going to lose out on $30,000-$50,000 from a loyal customer. Mad!
Dec 15, 2017, 03.33 PM / Qantas tightens Partner Gold rules for Platinum frequent flyers
Strange move by Qantas. This disincentives those who typically earn 2000-2500 status credits a year, such as myself from flying with Qantas. Once I have reached platinum I will now transfer to Singapore Airlines and try for PPS Soliatire
Dec 15, 2017, 10.29 AM / Qantas business class: A380 SkyBed II vs A330/B787 Business Suite
I have been on a Qantas flight from Sydney to Canberra circling over the airport and could see a Virgin flight landing (there were patches of fog). Our Qantas flight turned back to Sydney with the captain stating that it was due to a lack of visibility! All the passengers could see the runway but...
Nov 24, 2017, 08.25 AM / Qantas promises to slash Sydney-Canberra flight cancellations
Singapore Airlines manage the queue very well at Chiangi and generally speaking only those entitled to priority boarding receive it. But it still frustrates me. My ticket gets checked by the check in staff, then by someone just before immigration counter (shouldn't it be emigration), then at the ...
Sep 29, 2017, 01.21 PM / Priority boarding with Qantas, Virgin: what's your experience?
I was at both the Qantas and AA lounge last night (travelling F on QF, and neither were much to write home about. I preferred sitting in a bar and watching the sport.That said I also visited AA's flagship lounges in New York and Chicago in the last week and they were fine/good. Good for a domes...
Oct 31, 2017, 02.44 PM / Lounge access DFW
I agree with most of the comments above that people who spill over to another seat should have to pay for the adjacent seat.One of the strangest reasons I have been delayed before is that there were so many oversized people on a flight from London to Rome that there were not enough extension seat...
Oct 18, 2017, 09.34 PM / Seats getting smaller, people getting bigger.
I am PPS with Singapore and Platinum with Qantas and if I had to choose I would go with Qantas. The key points that sway my decision are One World have a better standard of lounges worldwide and I find it easier to earn Qantas points rather than Kisflyer miles
Oct 09, 2017, 12.47 PM / Singapore Airlines (Krisflyer) Gold or Qantas Gold?
I have a business trip coming up in November where I need to travel from Sydney to Nanjing, then on to Osaka and back to Sydney. The two airlines that fly direct from Nanjing to Osaka are Juneyao and China Eastern. I have flown China Eastern on their A330 but not on the rostered A321. Has anyone ...
Sep 29, 2017, 09.16 PM / Juneyao or China Eastern
From the above answers I am curious to know if you increase your credit limit on your current credit card, will it count in a similar way as applying for a new card, this reducing your credit rating?
