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

    How did you go? I am waiting for points and cash for a few bookings cancelled around the same time.

    VA no longer issuing credits to travelbank (or anywhere else)

    I am in the same boat. Cancelled a reward flight and was told no refunds for now. Luckily I paid the taxes with points so not really out of pocket - still annoying though.

    Is it Time to transfer/withdraw points from Velocity?

    Overall I think this is good news, however probably mostly a move to boost confidence for people with point balances. I would make sure to pay only with points and not lay out cash for taxes etc. Worst case the new owners won't honor these flights, but then the points will be worthless as well...

    Virgin Australia Financially Secure? [Now in Voluntary Administration]

    This article has more information on the role of QIC: https://www.afr.com/street-talk/qic-tows-new-queensland-future-fund-into-virgin-20200505-p54pte Reads to me as if the QLD government has directed QIC to handle the logistics of the purchase and eventually manage the asset. Doesn't exactly...

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

    If I have a return booking (single PNR), can I cancel one of the flights or is it always a full cancellation?

    Dili, East Timor

    Went to East Timor in 2017. Spent a night in Dili and then headed off to Atauro for some diving. Wouldn't spend too much time in Dili, there are a few museums, plenty of hotels, bars and restaurants but overall dirty and has a depressing feel to it. Never felt unsafe but it's not an inviting...

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

    Received both points and cash back today for a booking I cancelled 4 weeks ago. No intervention from my side, they must be slowly processing the queue.

    QFF Platinum requesting release of extra Classic award seats?

    Has anyone tried getting a seat released on one of the "limited schedule" domestic government subsidized flights? I need to travel in the coming weeks and right now there is absolutely no reward availability at all on QF (can't imagine these flights are full - just a question if QF is allowing...

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

    Has anyone received refunds of points/taxes simply by cancelling online? I had 6 flights that I cancelled via the website 3 weeks ago and received nothing so far. Obviously happy to wait but just wondering if this will require manual intervention. For the flights that I couldn't cancel online...

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

    I stand corrected - called to move it again and was directly offered to cancel. 👍

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

    Has anyone had any luck cancelling legs of an already commenced reward trip? I have a very straight forward domestic return for which I keep pushing out the inbound leg - QF won't let me cancel due to having already flown the outbound leg.
