    Qantas doesn't care about priority boarding

    And remember they had people from corporate or elsewhere higher up deployed in Sydney (if not other ports) to ensure a smooth implementation of this revolutionary new approach yet still can't get it right. But Qantas's obfuscation of the oneworld rules has seen this elite benefit that's been...

    A couple of questions from an AAdvantage newbie

    I reported this phantom availability issue to AA's business ops unit in March 2017. Since that time, we've had three or four polite exchanges we're they've acknowledged the frustration and asked for further information. One "analyst" even wrote in an email to me "Yes, I agree, it's ridiculous."...

    BA J Sale PER-BKK with many options

    Is the fare on sale at the moment? I searched for INNT32S2 in February 2020 but it didn't show up.

    Tips for moving from QFF to BAEC (QF WP + LTG)...

    Yes, that can be another problem. You can always ask a gate agent (or even the lounge agent when you leave, if you dare) to print you a new boarding pass with your alternate program's number on it. You can then have your FF card with elite status ready alongside your boarding pass with no status...

    Qantas doesn't care about priority boarding

    I had intended to and still may well. But today's experience allowed me to share yesterday's with the CSM. I again flew out of Sydney, this time on a widebody but out of gate three. To backtrack slightly, on arriving into Sydney off another flight I noticed four QF staff standing around at the...

    Qantas doesn't care about priority boarding

    On a 737 service ex-Sydney today, I walked to my gate with a little skip in my step. The reports suggested I'd in for a welcome change. I'd scribbled a little note on a piece of paper, ready to hand to the gate agent to thank Qantas for taking action. The note wasn't needed. At gate two, the...

    Qantas Heavy Luggage Charge - USA Flights

    Good question. I suspect it's a single charge for baggage between 23kg and 32kg. However, you might like to try to engage the chat function on the website or SMS. If you get the answer you want, definitely get a copy of the transcript in the case of the chat and don't delete the SMS message if...

    Qantas doesn't care about priority boarding

    Agreed. But revolutionary in the way BA's Club World was revolutionary at the turn of the century That is to say, other carriers partook in the Battle of Priority Boarding years ago. They won, packed up their kit and went on to the next battle. Meanwhile ... Qantas thinks it's invented this...

    best way to spend overseas? just realised the fees on virgin cards for OS transaction

    Do you have a link to this one? I assume the annual fee is hefty.

    QF Survey of new WP/P1 / post LTG benefits

    My first thoughts are similar to what a couple of others have posted. It would appear to me that Qantas didn't anticipate the lack of interest in the absurd Lifetime Platinum qualification and have realised that - just as many members here said - a lot of frequent flyers would bail at the...

    Congratulations, AFF. If it indeed comes to fruition, it's a big win for the forum, I believe.

    Hmmm. Interesting. I wasn't aware Bankwest had a fee-free card with insurance.
