    Qantas Business Rewards - lost all my points due to inactivity

    Just wanted to get some feedback. I found out today that Qantas Business Rewards had removed all my points due to inactivity (of course only due to COVID) but at the same time send me an email to advice they extended my Level 2 membership.

    Has there been changes in the way reward flight availability is displayed on Qantas?

    I have noticed the same thing. rewards flights listed are almost all One World partners but not so much for Qantas. Whereas before Qantas Reward flights always showed up. I just been looking at flights from any major airport in Australia to LAX 12 month out in J

    Qantas Status and Points for rescheduled flights

    Update - Qantas denied the claim for original routing credits. They state this needs to be confirmed by the airline Finn Air. I sent them an email but cant see an outcome. Is this common practice? Unfortunately not as easy as just sending them the boarding passes. I'm looking at a loss of 180...

    Qantas Status and Points for rescheduled flights

    The BA flight was by far the worst business class flight i ever experienced. i dont know why people pay good money for the product. I had one of the middle seats facing backwards. it was claustrophobic to say the least. Whoever designed this product should be ashamed of themselves. Unfortunately...

    First class upgrade on QF1

    I would go for it, however the chance are slim to none. I tried the upgrade path probably 10 times in the past and never ended up sitting in first.
