The timing of this announcement makes me question how much American Express is paying attention to anything. To me it just reads like Uber begging people to reverse on #deleteuber.

I mean, I kind of did. I went to the Asia Miles site and matched up the booking codes I saw there with the booking codes Qantas listed for the class I was able to purchase on Qantas's site.

Ha, yes, I was going to mention that until I came back and saw you already had. That site doesn't show 0% earn on CX for any of the listed classes.

I couldn't even check the booking class for the Qantas flight before I purchased the ticket even if I had known to. The web site just shows me that it's Economy Saver, not the booking class code....

Yep, I gathered that.

The activation process is definitely second-rate compared to AmEx and the like (which is pretty much fully automatic).

Just received my renewed HSBC Premier World card. My previous one was from 2011 or so. The new one is very plasticky-shiny. Old one had a nicer semi-metallic sheen. Just looks cheaper now. :(
