If it's Tuesday, this must be Belgium! But yes, that looks like a very rushed itinerary, and the jetlag will be a killer for the first few…

That's annoying. In that case, you'll need to fire off complaints to AFCA (regarding your own circumstances) and ASIC (regarding the false…

If they come after my FFFL Premier card, I'll be firing off a complaint to ASIC (for breaches of section 12DB of the ASIC Act relating to…

Spend $US9.95 on a one month subscription to seats.aero (note it’s segment by segment e.g. CDG-DOH and DOH-MEL rather than CDG-MEL). It…

Flew Lauda Air from Bergamo to Vienna last year. Was an hour late, the seats were rock hard and there was lots of upselling. But…

Good if you have a specific long haul business class redemption in mind and you can't churn credit cards. Not so good otherwise...

I'm in the same boat - third lot of standard points lobbed in, but no bonus yet.

I booked a couple of tickets on Emirates yesterday. The AUEBOOK code offered a better discount in my case (about $30 per ticket compared to…

As well as CC churning, the other thing is to park cash in a MacBank transaction account, which offers 4.75% (vs about 1.1% for Bankwest,…

Neat! Signed up this morning and they offered the usual four week trial, as well as the 12 month period. So effectively 13 months for $35.…

And said status is recognised by Virgin for lounge access etc. And Aeroplan offers regular deals when buying miles.

I churned the Ultimate card while they had the bonus offer and had no issues. I got the bonus points as CBA award points in the first month…

A forced restart of the app sorted it for me.

That's why I said 'assuming of course you value business class highly'. If you don't, you don't. It's not just MEL-SYD hops that Velocity…

While there are cheap days where promo fares can be as low as $200 one way on Jetstar, they're typically closer to $350 and by the time you…

$20k per month = 240k Citi points = 120k Velocity points/240k Flybuys points. If you notionally assign a value of 1cpp to Velocity…

None of the above if you can help it and a full service carrier is not too dissimilarly priced (which they often are once you get through…
