    I was on 616 at 1910, connecting to 88 to NRT. So we were at the same place at the same time!

    Rather than create a new thread - I don't suppose either of the regular MH flyers here have had any trouble crediting the deeply discounted MH fares to QF? I don't really care about the points - but the SCs would be really nice. I've picked through the QF ts&cs - given that I have spent the last 10 years drafting contracts for a living, I would have thought that I would have stood a reasonably good chance of working this out myself - but it's utterly bamboozling. I'm suspecting that the deeply discounted fares earn neither a point nor a sc.

    I've been sent the MH do you want to bid for an upgrade email - which judging by another thread books into I class. Expert flyer is showing my KUL-DRW flight (13 April so 7 days time) as C4 J4 D4 I2 with no seats allocated in business class (economy has just 8 seats allocated (including mine) and is showing 9s across the board on the fare buckets) - so I have only bid 15% more than the minimum.

    It is likely that "deeply" discounted MH fares will not earn any QF points or status credits. If booked in fare classes N, O, Q or G, which are the fares you usually see for MH on sale, you will earn nothing on QF (or any oneworld partners), only earn 25% on MH Enrich. In other discounted economy fare classes, you will likely earn some QF Status Credits.

    Note that while MHUpgrade rebooks into I it is still non-earning on QFF (or for that matter on MH or AA).

    Most MH cheap fares I have seen are N-Class which earn nothing on QF

    That's what I thought - no SCs or miles - how ever will I cope!?!?!

    Actually whilst MHUpgrade does rebook into I, in MH Enrich program, it still accrues miles according to originally ticketed fare class, although sometimes it doesn't credit automatically, and requires follow up with call centre.

    Anecdotal evidence suggests this is also the case for partner programs, that because it is in I class it won't automatically credit and the form type electronic retro mileage claims will be rejected, but manual intervention/follow up is required to obtain credit in originally ticketed fare class. Of course anything in N, O, Q or G class won't credit to partner programs irrespective of MHupgrade or not.

    After finding this page How to Find Your Fare Class on Malaysia Airlines Flights - FlyStayTravelFlyStayTravel - I finally worked out that my fare bucket is O.

    Thanks for all the advice - it's been most helpful.

    I've walked around T1, T2 and T3 inside SIN airport a few times. It's a nice walk. Helps pass the time and keeps you awake.

    From memory it's ~15 minute walk from Qantas lounge to furthest gates in T2. I am a fast walker but not as fast as some here.

    Thanks for all the advice and tips on this thread. Flew through last night without a hitch. Even made it to the QF club before Mrs Triple B.

    I charged from the T2 passport control to the QF club in just under 10 minutes (but I was really charging along the travelators). On the way back took the monorail and dropped into the MH lounge (which I can see why people would go around to the QF/BA lounges to avoid if time permits). Had my first MH flights - quite good. The cheap bid upgrade was very pleasant. My productivity at work is brought to you today by the sleep I got on the KUL-DRW redeye.

    Many thanks again.
