Re: Business Class Airfares to UK / Europe - approx $2700 - $2800 rtn!

Booking done! You were right BC, they treated DOH as one award so total spend of 170,000 miles plus $480. So, so happy. If I knew who you were I would hug you.

Re: Business Class Airfares to UK / Europe - approx $2700 - $2800 rtn!

Thanks so much BC. The flights I've found are via KL flying with Malaysian and BA (only one sector being BA). So I presume that makes it OK for a single award then?
I didn't realise you could book...

Re: Would you live next to a family day care?

There's a maximum of only 4 or 5 children (not what sure what the current allowed number is), - so not really different to a large family, and hopefully because they are being handled by a childcare...

Re: Sydney Cost of Living and Advice Please
