Good question. Apparently not. Nor did I burn any, because I didn't have any.

The email doesn't make any reference to my mileage plus account though. On the other hand it knows my first name --...

Survey link for flight I never took?

Hi there. Apologies if this is a known problem for which there's a big existing thread.

I just got a survey email from United asking for my opinion on my flight from LAX to IAD two days ago....

Easily requalified for gold, but forgot to actually fly VA

I just got an email from VA informing me that although I've collected 870 status credits this year it seems I've only actually taken one qualifying flight on VA itself. I did a little bit of domestic...

It's been about two years since I did the same, but I was definitely allowed into the NZ lounge at BNE.

Anyone else have huge problems claiming points?

Am I the only one who has extraordinary difficulty getting credited points for flights? It seems like almost every time I fly overseas, there's at least one flight missing which I have to claim...

Of course they will, they want you to pay them to talk to cops for you. And then they want to drag out the process for as long as possible.

It's like every mechanic will tell you not to change...

It's not a big terminal, there's no queues except for a quick security re-screen, you're getting off a small plane... if the airline thinks it's possible then I believe them.

Assuming you have a lounge pass (I think Silvers get one pass a year, right?) you'll run into the problems that: (a) the rules only allow you in two hours before departure (you can get away with...

$2200 is an awful lot for SFO-SYD return, you may be looking at some bad dates. I'd expect to pay $1500-2000.

The most I've ever paid was $2500 but that was at Christmas.

Cheap compared to, say, Vietnam?

Really though, Marrickville is only ~20 mins to the city on the train, so I'm sure you'll be fine, and I imagine you're saving enough on the airbnb to make it...

For the Great Ocean Road I'd much rather rent a car and drive myself than be herded on a bus.

Come to think of it, I'd rather do that for all of those, but especially for the Great Ocean Road. You...

I don't think most Australian hotels add a 2.5-3.5% surcharge. I don't recall having seen this recently, at least not for Visa/Mastercard (sometimes for Amex).

You can always book through...

On the Park Hyatt Sydney, it may be a lot of points, but it'd be a helluva lot of dollars if you were paying cash. It's one of the most spectacular Hyatt properties in the world, so if you've got...

If I needed to download and print something I'd go to Officeworks. It's an office supply store slash print shop, the employees are usually pretty useful, and there's one in the Brisbane CBD. They...

On the free Melbourne tram: this program is only a few months old which is why you may be getting mixed messages on it. Trams are now free within the CBD grid and Docklands.

I don't think it sounds too bad an itinerary. If you had more time you could spend it, but it's not so rushed as to be pointless.

The first day you've pretty much written off to driving, and...

Don't bother with the train from Sydney to Brisbane, it takes much longer than driving, you see even less, and it's barely cheaper than flying.

The Orlando/Vegas comparisons are only apt for the...

>1. Is 10 days too long in Sydney and surrounding areas?

I wouldn't say it was too long, in that some people spend decades there... but you'll exhaust every vaguely touristy thing to do.

I agree that 3 days doesn't give you much time in Tasmania, but I think you're better seeing a bit of Tasmania than all of Ayers Rock, unless you're really committed to the rock thing.

If you're...

Darwin to Ayer's Rock is a drive. Darwin to Broome is an adventure. But it is sealed road the whole way, as I understand it. A 4WD is worth having anyway, though, for visiting the national parks...

That's a helluva full itinerary! But okay.

I've never stayed in either, but if it were me I'd go with the Swissotel for the better location, and because it *looks* fancier. If they're a similar price I don't see any reason not to go with the...

In my experience the train is a minute or two faster but the bus is far more frequent and involves less walking.
