  1. As we all know Singapore Air is a brilliant product.
    For Australians it is especially valuable. In case you are not aware , Australia is a long way from anywhere …..and not served by enough airlines. Singapore Air fly Melbourne-Singapore, I think, 5 times daily.
    I choose SQ over QF every time even though both are great to fly in the air, purely because QF use their Sydney hub way too much. Flying ex MEL via SYD is truly awful. It adds 3 hours to already long flights and is very inconvenient . With QF, MEL-SYD leg (1 hour) is domestic, collect bags, bus to international terminal, immigration, recheck bags. What a pain. Contrast to SQ flying MEL-SIN direct and then onto the rest of the world.

  2. Obviously Uber and Lyft have really hurt the rental car business, however greedy local governments have caused alot of it with huge surcharges to rent at the airport etc. I have seen fees on some rentals in the past that are 50% or more of the car rental price. Outlandish 20% fees than a bunch of stacked fees for convention centers and such. The rental companies also try to nickel and dime customers.

  3. “a New Points Transfer Option” Read this article 3 times and don’t see any reference to a new points transfer option…
