    QFF Platinum requesting release of extra Classic award seats?

    I thought that seat release for Plat 1s domestically came from the "D" bucket

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    Well done. How many J seats did you get MEL - DOH . Up to now, more than one has been near impossible. Also, the only other OW carrier serving KEF is FINNAIR -daily. Trouble is that J seats are hard to come by in advance with AY but JAL serve HEL so AY kef-hel on AY then onto Japan on JAL would...

    I have always assumed that you did not need to go back to your city of origin only the country of origin - happy to be corrected.

    QF International via Darwin

    Good point and thanks for rubbing it in . It is hard to believe that the "Three Stooges" running the Qld Government at the moment will keep us locked out of international destinations for more than another six months! But who knows?

    QF International via Darwin

    It would be interesting to see what flight options would be available for non NSW / VIC passengers to connect at DRW. BNE-DRW is scheduled as a 737 for early next year . Maybe 12 business class seats would be enough for the front end punters wanting to travel just to DRW plus those continuing...

    Helsinki would be another option on Finnair.

    How do Qantas classic awards on oneworld airlines work?

    When you say that you can't reserve seats ,are you saying that you cant reserve via the QFF booking page under your frequent flier number ? That is normal as often with partners , you need to go that airlines manage bookings page and enter your name and reservation number to be able to access...

    I've called twice in the last two weeks and both times the agents have noted the system is very slow - one also said that the booking system is being refurbished slowly so it may not cause too much trouble in the future.

    Re your question on MCTs ,I have delved a little more deeply as I suspect that many of us have not flown substantially for so long that what used to be common knowledge is now recessed in our deep memories. So apologies in advance for telling readers what they may already know. Minimum...

    Thanks for your thoughts and advice. I am looking to delay this routing to august September 2022 where there are better partner options but Qantas is not offering that many possibilities . Understandably I guess with our current political situation. Your comments are on the mark re UK APD not...

    Changes to Qantas search tool and points redemption?

    I had forgot also - only started again when I was finding it hard to access some sectors on the QFF award booking site. In the past , you had to ring and request if there was availability on Royal Air Maroc ( AT) into and out of Cascablanca (CMN) . But I found that the BA site seemed to...

    Changes to Qantas search tool and points redemption?

    Matt , thanks for that clarification re QR maxing U seats for QFF. It is always easy to blame QFF when in fact the whole award seat allocations can be so complicated.

    Changes to Qantas search tool and points redemption?

    Interesting that QFF is now showing availability from Australian ports to Doha but ONLY one "U" seat. I compared a sample of dates where QFF offer one business award seat and BA is showing 4 seats . Still I guess one seat is better than none !

    With reference to the march April 2022 travelling time and I must admit that I am not one to enjoy trips where there is a lot of 10-12 hour waits at airports and 0200 hrs departures nor longer sectors in Economy. So that does colour my opinion. To be fair , a lot of the following is just plain...

    Ta, I've held back from Christmas bookings as I want to go to Iceland and Morocco and it seemed just too soon to try those places. I was expecting that from the end of march 2022, with the start of the northern hemisphere flying season , QF would be being more generous.
