Quietly hit Qantas Lifetime Silver

Have received ‘the letter’, which is all you receive, to say I’ve hit earned enough status credits to retain silver for life. It is important to keep it all in perspective, five years or so ago when I opened an account I barely knew of, let alone would have expected to reach...

Singapore to London, Qantas A380 First Class

After a day in Singapore I now had the original flight booking that drew me here. This would be my first proper long haul first class experience, no less on the A380, on a thirteen hour overnight flight from Singapore to London. The flight experience was no less than excellent, providing...

Auckland to Singapore Jetstar Star/Business Class

Flying for nearly 11 hours on a low cost carrier? Not to worry, Jetstar Starclass (now business class) is basic but provides ample amenities with domestic business/first style seating that is more than comfortable particularly as this was an all day flight.

Adelaide Sydney Auckland LAN A340 Flat Bed

This would be the start of an eight flight, week long New Zealand trip where I planned to visit the big three cities, Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. Although the best bits of NZ are arguably outside the cities, this would be a start for me. My flight there was first a domestic flight...

Adelaide via Sydney to Beijing on Qantas

So this was my first international flight. We all have to start somewhere. To be honest back then I noted very little and was just engrossed in the experience, so here I am writing a bit about it many years later. But it was an important stage and decision to...
