    What does this mean to other OW status pax?

    It seems this deal removes Qantas as a viable option to Europe for those who have status with a OW partner other than QF and want to make use of that status. Couple that with my dislike of DXB airport at the best of times and this arrangement is a backward step in my opinion.

    What's this and Why?
    Why? You can still use your one world status to fly to LHR, exactly just like now. So what has changed besides an airport you don't like

    Re: What does this mean to other OW status pax?

    QF was never a viable option to Europe, only destination was FRA.
    If you have other OW status ex-Aus, guess you fly CX.

    If you used to previously fly to LHR then BA back into EUR you will still be able to do this via BKK, SIN, HKG on QF/BA/CX or via DXB on QF metal.

    So apart from some connection times that may not line up as perfectly as the current thru services at SIN(and previously BKK), don;t see the change for OW elites.... however some big positives for QF elites

    All this means for OW is that there's now more variety in the Oz-Europe route besides the usual SIN/BKK/HKG. Don't like DXB? Go pick another port.

    Once MH become part of OW (end Q1 2013), that will be another option via KUL. Can't remember all of MH's European destinations of the top of my head tho...

    And I will wait until details of the proposed EK and AA codeshare arrangement are announced before further commenting.

    No option to fly Qantas via BKK/SIN/HKG. I guess BKK stopped a while back but the other 2 are still an option.

    Yes there other options but CX, BA and MH are not Qantas....
