    Platinum One experiences?

    Interesting email to drop into the inbox this morning....tempted as I only have a couple of new pairs of PJs left, but knowing how the QF PJs wear, not sure they're worth $75

    New 100 Year anniversary Q Tags

    Was pleased to get home this evening to have this waiting for me... Took slightly longer than the advised 10-14 days that I was told

    Platinum One experiences?

    Couldn't agree more. I've ended up having to give away the P1 passes to friends and work colleagues given myself being P1 and gifting WP to other family that travel more frequently. I would have thought that allowing the P1 invites to be used for CL access only by a P1 would make sense and not...

    Platinum One experiences?

    So very very true. Alas, I have only been invited to one event. It was the one day cricket last year in Sydney that was then cancelled due to COVID...

    I would even argue that the invite to events is a published benefit....although not necessarily applied consistently hence leading to raised expectations as you mention.

    New 100 Year anniversary Q Tags

    After seeing Matt_01's 100 Anniversary P1 tags, decided to email the team and ask for new ones. Have been advised some are on the way. Now just have to hope I get the anniversary ones and not the 'regular roo'...

    Qantas Club access for non-flying guest refused

    Well there's Qantas being its usual inconsistent self. Whilst I agree that the rules should allow you to bring a non-flying guest into the lounge, I do understand in a smaller regional lounge like CFS why they may restrict access. It's a tiny lounge that in pre-COVID times was sometimes...

    Qantas First Lounges to Reopen

    No, currently they cannot and speaking with the VIP Services Team they could not advise when this would be available (this was a week ago). Reason given was COVID and capacity restrictions. Note this was for both P1 passes and general passes as I had wanted to give family members passes when...

    Unable to link Qantas lounge to booking (International - Trans Tasman)?

    The VIP Services Team advised me last week that invitations are not currently able to be linked to international bookings. Both P1 invitations and those given to silver members and credit cards. They could not tell me if / when this would change.

    Platinum One experiences?

    Another great experience with the VIP team asking them for a small favour. As yesterday was Mother's Day and also happened to be my mother's birthday and she happened to be flying with Qantas, I asked for a message to be put on her boarding pass. This was all arranged without fuss and was...

    Qantas First Lounges to Reopen

    Interesting Matt. I was able to give / transfer my two of my P1 passes to family members for use at Syd Dom J end of last month. I had no issues in transferring and they were able to link and use at the lounge with no issues. QF - consistently inconsistent to quote another member of this forum.

    Platinum One experiences?

    Interesting - mine are still showing as Nov 21. On a semi related note, I realised that I had not received my lounge passes for this membership year (ticked over in April) so when I called yesterday to change a couple of flights I enquired and they are still looking into it. Bianca from the VIP...

    Platinum One experiences?

    Hoping that it pays off then I will consider it to be a cunning plan. Yes, I have a similar thought process as I know I will drop come March 22 (as I only really earn status by travelling international) hence my original question. Renomination might not have been the best terminology for me to...

    Platinum One experiences?

    Thanks to those for responses / experiences. Still uncertain how I'll handle this (as I have no immediate need to) but will let you all know once I do. @Matt_01 - Yes, I considered calling the VIP team but also wouldn't want to 'alert' them to this in case it's a loophole which would allow me...

    Platinum One experiences?

    Question for the brains trust regarding complimentary Platinum nomination. I had previously (when I initially gained P1 in 2019) given the complimentary platinum nomination to my father. He has a June YE, whereas I have a March YE. I had thought that when I gifted him this that his YE would...
