I will state out front that I love Qantas. I love the big red kangaroo, I love the grown up stewards who don’t think they are funny, I love the lounge, I love not having to look at ads in front of me for hours unless I pay to have them removed, I like proper sized planes.
Of course I am not a credit card issuer so I can have this luxury.
In what must have been a pained series of conversations, Qantas have gone out and said people must choose. They have done so on a grand scale in all forms of media.
I personally am leaning at choosing a Qantas card over my existing as I want the points, it is great value and unlike everybody else in the world I always get a seat on my points.
What has been truly remarkable is how the main issuing banks seems to have been deathly quiet on all of it. My bank, Westpac hasn’t given me any guidance on it and I can’t find any at the website. I would like to know what Westpac recommend but I can’t see anything?
Can anybody give me some background on the issue?
