    What's your favourite 747 memory?

    I was coming home to Australia after a long, extremely stressful and emotionally exhausting clinical trial in the US (work). Had a very uncomfortable and long flight from JFK to DFW and was super keen for the awesome service and comfort of QF. Had been working long days for weeks on end and...

    Long wait for refund for cancelled reward flights Qantas - a common experience?

    Hi all, I cancelled two J reward tickets on 18/03/2020. The first (LHR-KUL-BNE) was refunded in full (points and money) within two weeks (Qantas UK). I received my points for the outbound (BNE-HKG-LHR-ZRH) two weeks ago and the taxes yesterday. Glad I've got it but 3 months is way too long for...

    Option to cancel award flight online not available

    I used the chat feature in the mobile app yesterday to change an award flight to Europe to avoid Hong Kong (preempting any DFAT decisions) and go via Dubai instead. Quick and easy. They did the change, took a small amount for taxes using an online payment form and refunded some extra points in...

    Free Free Stuff - Who Wants to be a VA WP (Velocity Platinum)

    Hi Matt, Amazing offer - incredibly generous and a great opportunity for someone. I would love it as each year I trek back to Europe (Switzerland) to see my family and my fast growing nieces and nephew. The ability to choose better seats or have a greater chance of an upgrade would make this a...

    Red Energy referral 15,000 QF points [now 7,000 or $100]

    Hi all, many thanks to whomever used my referral number - got my $50 Coles Myer card and decided to give it to our intern at work - she works incredibly hard and earns a small amount so the $50 will mean she can have a little splurge at the shops. Thanks again! Happy for anyone else who needs a...

    Transfer Counter - QF to SQ? Possible?

    Hi all, Quick question about using the transfer desks at Changi. I have flights booked to Europe that consist of a BNE-SIN return on Qantas with the SIN-Europe return on SQ inbetween. I know there is no interline agreement between QF and SQ (oneworld v star alliance). I was therefore...

    QF Upgrades - Successes or Failures (post results)

    Thanks for your response QF WP. Personally 25000 points is well worth it for a 5 hour + flight (we had headwinds) in J on the A330-200 IMHO. I managed to sleep for over 2 hours. Upgrade for the midnight express return trip went through immediately, very happy, did not fancy 5 hours in Y arriving...

    QF Upgrades - Successes or Failures (post results)

    Quick question; my flight yesterday (BNE-PER, miraculously on time, must have been the only ones to get out on time) had only 12 -ish passengers in J. Does that mean no one else put in a points upgrade request? Would they have gone to the bottom of the list (NBs, no status pax etc)? Just curious.
