    QFF Platinum requesting release of extra Classic award seats?

    Thanks. I am seeing some inventory pop up in the few days before Christmas...but nothing in the magic zone after 25 Dec and before 31 January.

    QFF Platinum requesting release of extra Classic award seats?

    Princess Fiona. May I ask dates? I’ve been trying to move my circuitous BNE-MEL-SFO-LAX J award on 26/12 to a direct and not having any luck.

    Pathetic [Where are the advertised extra award seats? ]

    My original itinerary was BNE-LAX in Z class (72,000 points) on QF // LAX-BNE in U class (96,000 points) on QF. Changed itinerary is BNE-MEL-SFO (QF) - LAX (AA) all in U class // LAX-BNE in U class. Points went up slightly because I am going via Melbourne and that pushes me to the next zone...

    Pathetic [Where are the advertised extra award seats? ]

    FYI - some positive news (well I think). I just had to change a classic award that was booked last week. Turns out the points cost is based on date of PNR, so I was able to change my booking, but at the previous (pre-18 Sep) points costs. I am also getting a refund on some of the taxes...

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    A 10k point increase for a $75 reduction. Qantas top up points value these same point at $369...

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    Not sure I follow...all Oneworld Awards are based on return miles.

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    Yep sorry...I only looked at the zone 10. It wasn't until I did the table I saw a lot more downward trends. :0

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    Actually, the changes to the Oneworld Award probably make sense. I suspect no one redeems at the lower end, so the reductions mean little...but the increase to the RTW is probably a reflection of where all the activity is...

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    This is my quick and dirty Oneworld Award comparison. It's all over the shop. Can someone check I got the right numbers?

    Oneworld awards all going up too. :-(

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    This was quick and dirty, so apologies if any errors...

    Also, new T&Cs are up. Frequent Flyer Terms and Conditions | Qantas Can't see anything much revealed in there. No specific mention of LTWP.

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    So consistent with the date that new points levels will apply? 18th September would be the three months, correct? This would be to avoid a rush on current points level redemptions at lower co-pays. Also, looking online this morning, a Y classic award BNE to LAX is now 41,900 points and $60YQ...

    Double Status Credits (book by 5/2/18, fly 12/2/18 to 20/1/19)

    Double Status Credits (book by 5/2/18, fly 12/2/18 to 20/1/19)

    This is good news! There’s clearly some delays...I had a flight on 4 May for which DSCs have still not posted. The other half was on the same flight and his DSCs posted last night. I was getting a little concerned. This was a booking made during the promo period via a TA, but we had changed...
