    Should I stay or should I go - Hong Kong [protests]

    What a terrifying experience for your family ellen10. I hope they get off the ground soon and back in Oz safely. How old is your son?

    "oneworld" award (140K/280K/420K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    That’s comforting to know. My plan is if the QR909 is still available on the previous night of my preferred departure I will take that and should be able to book right through. If not I will take QR907 and the 8hour layover.

    "oneworld" award (140K/280K/420K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    The trouble is I will need to grab the Sydney flight as soon as it is available and the other leg is not released until the following day. I have been planning this for 6months and can see flights become available everyday but they are gone pretty quickly. And like you I won’t know until I...

    "oneworld" award (140K/280K/420K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    Hi Kyah I was glad to read you got your flights sorted. But I was trying to understand what the issue was? I am hoping to book SYD-DOH soon and then add DOH-JMK the next day when it becomes available - do you think I will run into trouble with this scenario?

    Question Award flight Sept 17

    Putting my thinking cap on - might bring the trip forward a week - that way i can book flights before i leave for this trip. ( We can fly any day that week, but obviously the earlier the better)

    Question Award flight Sept 17

    mmm - interesting. I think thats correct. Any exemptions on the change fee because it cant be booked online.? I was aiming for QR907 leaving on Saturday afternoon (We have to work on Friday) I might look at QR909 on Friday night - that way both my flights will be booked before the changes...

    Question Award flight Sept 17

    So looks like the best option is to have separate PNRs?

    Question Award flight Sept 17

    So I am hoping to book an award flight Sydney to Doha on QR - I am tracking their release daily and they seem to release regularly but are gone quickly. So i have my alarm set for my preferred release day which happens to be September 17. I am also hoping to add a flight to either Athens or...

    Question QR A350 with Q suites or A380?

    Yeah but it will be the middle of the night. Guess I will see what comes up.

    Question QR A350 with Q suites or A380?

    Hoping to fly with QR SYD-DOH and then onto Athens. Should I go with the A350 and Q suites that arrives in DOH around midnight and an 8 hour transit time or the overnight A380 that arrives around 5:00am. Hoping for an award flight so will take either but if both are available which should I...

    QFF redemption on CX metal, is no middle name OK?

    That’s good to know - I have been thinking of you. Although we definitely got boarding passes printed the night before.

    Question Award Flight - SYD - ATH

    Actually would prefer the A380 from Sydney, rather than arriving in DOH at midnight and waiting 8hours for the connection. Guess I will just have to cross fingers, book the long haul if it becomes available and hope that I can add on the Athens flight. We could stopover for a night in DOH if...

    Question Award Flight - SYD - ATH

    So how would I know if I need to make it a stopover ? I am assuming I would need to call and book the DOH - ATH leg, will they be able to tell me then or am I still risking flights dropping off. The connection time works I would really just rather make it a transit. Going from Adelaide is my...

    Question Award Flight - SYD - ATH

    So I am hoping to book an award flight SYD-ATH later this year. My preferred carrier is QR and i notice they have been releasing awards quite regularly but they are snapped up quickly. My problem is the DOH - ATH sector would be on the next calendar day due to the overnight flight. If SYD-DOH...

    Question Lounge Access SAW

    Hi all, I am planning a trip to Turkey - looking at award redemption options and it seems most award flights - (looking at Emirates) to Sydney leave from SAW airport. Wondering what the lounge access is at this airport.? (Depending on availability, and my points balance - I am looking at...

    QFF redemption on CX metal, is no middle name OK?

    Go to the checkin the night before - it will put your mind at ease. It’s just across the road from the hotel. It was such a relief to have those boarding passes in my hand. This was my thinking - I was prepared to spend all night on the phone trying to sort it, rather than waiting till morning.

    QFF redemption on CX metal, is no middle name OK?

    No, still only a first and last name. This is a problem that QFF needs to address as it causes a lot of unnecessary stress. Please keep this thread updated as to how you get on.
