I understand why the airlines want to recognise those who’ve paid for the business class fare, but I can’t imagine allowing those who’ve upgraded or purchased an award flight with points numbers in the 100’s at anyone time. The airline has made money off the points (ei...

As others have pointed out the Amex Platinum seems to offer significantly better value. It is frustrating to be getting 0.5 a point or something with my free CBA Diamond card, but paying $1,200 to get 0.75 extra points (& none on my rates & water charges), access to the first class lounge...

Shangri-la Golden Circle is great, but coverage outside of Asia is not fantastic. Stay 10 times (can be one night) & free breakfast, early/late checkout, welcome gift of three items you choose.

The Star Gold Coast was originally Conrad Jupiters. It then was known simply as Jupiters before being renamed The Star. The Brisbane casino was originally Conrad Treasury, now just the Treasury Casino.

Disappointing. It seems at first glance to make sense from a financial perspective, but at the end of the day the airline has been paid for the tickets; either they were earned by loyal members flying heaps of flights or they were sold to financial institutions. It’s a bit cheap really...

The idea for me is debate, I’d prefer to see the debate in writing, not just a - on the counter. Anyway was just interested to see the groups view.

Seeing there was some debate/feedback recently on the non-travel content, I wondered what view other members had on the ability to down vote. I personally dislike it & find myself up voting simply when I see negatives just to get rid of them. I'm not sure it adds a tremendous amount of value - ev...
