    Book a flight and Extend Current status to 2022

    By way of update. Logged in this morning (1 April) and my WP status has been extended for 12 months. I was greeted by the banner of congratulations. I also had a "Future Bookings" line appear in my account activity on 30 March. It was zero SCs and points, but I assume this was the system...

    Book a flight and Extend Current status to 2022

    Has anyone with a 31/03 date received the extension yet? I booked my flight in February and took it earlier this month, but it's well into "late March" and the extension has still not appeared. Points and SCs appeared same day, so the flight has definitely registered.

    Thanks Matt. Just happy to return some of the value I’ve gotten from members here on AFF over the years.

    Qantas increases points required for Emirates rewards

    I had not thought about this impact. I have often flown QF to AKL then connected to EK because availability is often better out of NZ.

    Qantas increases points required for Emirates rewards

    I could not see a separate thread (mods feel free to start if you think it worthy), but in related EK redemption news, I was looking at the Classic Flight Rewards tables just now and it seems that EK will move from the Qantas flight rewards table to the Partner flight rewards table from 1...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    Not according to the Velocity website: We’ve made the difficult decision to pause all redemptions for an initial period of four weeks, effective immediately. This means your members won’t be able to redeem their Points for rewards during the pause. That bolding is their emphasis, not mine...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    What is certain is that as a wholly owned subsidiary, it is an asset of the business in administration and therefore its capital and cash will be fully available to the administrators. The administrators have to preserve the assets of the business (which includes the Velocity subsidiary)...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    Except Joyce is allowed to have a bias towards the airline he’s running. Sims is heading a regulator, so it’s usually best to appear neutral on matters that are subject to an investigation.

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    Sims has a history of not knowing when to keep his mount shut. All he achieves by speaking publicly/giving his opinions about investigations that are underway, is undermining the legitimacy of those investigations by providing aggrieved parties with an opportunity to claim bias. I feel for his...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    Sorry, I wasn't suggesting that SIA was going to "stump up cash". It was meant as a rhetorical question...the "article" makes a claim that SIA was ready and willing to "save" VAH but that the Government didn't want them to be foreign owned, so would put their hands in the taxpayer pocket...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    Thanks. Wow. I don't even know where to start with that "article". Why would a government offer money to bailout any company if an existing shareholder was willing (SIA in this case) to stump up cash? There are no restrictions on VAH's share register re international ownership - although SIA...

    Qantas Points Club Discussion

    I'm in the same boat (31 March rollover). I had qualified already, but the 100SCs are welcome towards retaining this year. My PC tally also includes points from 15 March...
