Anyone got the bonus points yet? I hit the qualifying spend in my first statement, but no bonus. In previous adventures I had to call them...

Highly recommended the Aldi single origins particularly the Colombia (when available) and the Peru. It's contract roasted by Veneziano in...

I'm buying right now - and buying on margin at that. Fixed amount each week for the next 12 months until I've reached the level of margin...

Yeah, thanks for the tip. Good to know your status, too.

Nah I'm not. I must have accidentally clicked the "associated" box at some point and now it won't let me remove it.
07/09/2019 - 17:04
I'd agree mostly, except for the alcohol. Some of the wines and spirits are priced in the $1000s per bottle. So to enjoy those for my $650...

2K and 1K. Service was perhaps a little better on the shorter leg because there were not many people in the 1st cabin; whereas it was full...

Yeah that's a perfectly valid way to look at it; I certainly don't consider it to be "free" or even necessarily "cheap". I do, however,...
06/09/2019 - 17:48
Well if you're one of those lucky people who can sleep without too much trouble in an economy seat, then that makes perfect sense and I...

Well it was a 727 or similar flying to Panama City that we caught, so don't think I'd call it a light airfield!

Nope. A carbon tax is the solution to that problem, not a small group of people signalling virtue with token payments.

I do have an EU passport (well at least until Oct 31!) But actually Spain (Schengen rather) has no onward travel requirement for entry on...

Ok so here's the menu and wine list: https://www.instagram.com/p/B1-5MwSlYtK/?igshid=chtd8x4zs2yp And here's the foie gras & Bordeaux:...

Yeah I had this problem the first time I did this. The second time, I rang Emirates the morning of my flight, and they managed to remove my...
04/09/2019 - 12:43
Yeah. I got the chauffeur drive last time I did this. Was pretty nice indeed, especially in MEL where the airport is so far away!
04/09/2019 - 12:41
Yep it's on-demand. Will try to snap a pic next flight.
04/09/2019 - 12:41
I did post a video of the minibar! https://www.instagram.com/p/B18qsNvForn/ Yeah you can get a massage in the lounge here in DXB. I had one...
04/09/2019 - 12:40
Yeah it's tricky to do that. The timing of these flights doesn't lend itself to maximising the hospitality. You really need day flights for...
04/09/2019 - 12:39
I slept mostly. And honestly I'm planning on sleeping most of the next leg too if possible. I read some Economist. Listened to some music....

Morning! Hangover is quite severe as expected...

Ok time for a nap. See you in the morning for espresso martini!

Yeah as smoothymc said it's about value. If you use them to book economy flights you're not really getting a great deal. Whereas for first...
