    Travel Pass - how to confirm option selected

    Hi all, Some time ago I opted for a Travel Pass with the Double Status Credits offer for some cancelled flights to South America. I received the email confirming this, but the email with the actual Travel Pass only arrived after several weeks and required a few phone calls to the Qantas Hotline...

    Qantas credit voucher validity for flights after 31 October 2020

    Managed to get through to Qantas at 1am last night after waiting on the line for "only" 40 minutes. They agreed to convert my useless credit voucher to a travel pass, with validity until the end of 2022. Although it does take some time to convert - hopefully they won't change their mind in the...

    Qantas credit voucher validity for flights after 31 October 2020

    Interesting. I specifically asked about the travel pass and was told that while I can apply for it, its validity will still be until 24 Feb 2021 only.

    Qantas credit voucher validity for flights after 31 October 2020

    After patiently waiting for Qantas to cancel my December flight to South America, I received an email over the weekend that my flights have been cancelled and converted to a credit voucher. To my disappointment though, as my flight was booked way back in February, and the departure date is in...

    General Discussion/Q&A on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    Completely agree with you. The Australian government seems to be waiting for the situation to get as bad as Europe before taking any serious action to bring it under control. It is far from under control now, so the current measure are obviously not working.

    Change to a DSC booking

    Happy to report that although I changed both the dates and the departure point for the return flight, the DSC credit was applied with no issues.

    Change to a DSC booking

    I thought the way they keep track of the DSC eligibility is using the booking number. Once you change the destination or date you get a new booking number don't you? Happy to be proven wrong. Just wondering whether I'll be better off changing the return date before I depart or after departure.

    Change to a DSC booking

    If you change the booking after the end of the promotion (not the travel period) you lose the DSC bonus. It's part of the t&c of every DSC offer afaik

    Change to a DSC booking

    The promo was back in April so it's long gone. I know I will lose the bonus points if I change the booking, the question is whether I can limit the loss to the return flight only or do I lose the bonus from the entire booking. If I make the change after I depart, that is.
