Welcome to the second season of Points of View, the Point Hacks podcast.

In Episode 10, Chris Chamberlin is fresh off Qantas’ inaugural flight to Bengaluru – in Business Class and booked on points, of course.

And while travelling in India is an amazing adventure, it pays to plan in advance. From landing in a security-heavy Air Force base to finding the right ATM, Chris shares his firsthand experience of incredible India with host Dave Walsh.

About our podcasts

Are you still boarding a plane and turning right? Or walking past the First or Business cabin watching others sipping their welcome Champagne or OJ wondering how these people can afford these seats?

Well, wonder no more! Flying around the world in Business and First Class is more achievable than you may think, but only when you pay attention to your Frequent Flyer points.

While Season 1 of our podcast series delivered a weekly podcast every Tuesday, this season we’ll be releasing podcasts after we have completed an Experiences trip. Fortunately, there are lots on the horizon.
