    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    I am just trying to understand the new rules. We have flights booked for tomorrow, SYD-BNE-DRW. As of now, the NT will let us in as we haven't been to any hotspot in NSW and QLD, right? We are literally just transferring through BNE. https://coronavirus.nt.gov.au/travel/quarantine/hotspots-covid-19

    Double Status Credits for Points Club/Plus Members

    As mentioned above, I am only a Qantas Points Club member, the 1st level. Flight booked 20.05.2021, taken 26.05.2021. DSC came through 27.05.2021 (and as a bonus, that booking was made using BA Avios points)

    Double Status Credits for Points Club/Plus Members

    Mine were credited 24hrs after the flight (normal sc just after landing and DSC 24hr after) That was for a Business Reward SYD-OOL on the 26th.

    Double Status Credits for Points Club/Plus Members

    Will I get them if QF cancelled my flight and put me on VA, as happened today? Guess I need to call Qantas to request the original route status credits and the DSC for that as well...?

    Qantas Delays/Cancellations

    QF597 OOL-SYD got cancelled today. Plane arrived on time from Sydney on QF592 but was 'not serviceable' for the return leg. They put me on VA536 to Sydney (like for like, still business and same seat). Guess I have to call them for the status credits as I booked it last week during the Points...

    TravelPass DSC not posting

    This could be interesting. What happens if - you are 30sc short of the next tier but waiting for the TravelPass DSC to come through (40sc) - you're collecting year ends before that but you would have gone to the next tier with the missing DSC Why this is important: --> higher tier means more sc...

    Australian Reports of the Virus Spread

    Was in MEL for three hours yesterday, T1 and T3, no border pass checks at all - neither at the Virgin or Qantas Terminal.

    Qantas status rollover - error reversal

    Just had a look at my QF profile. There is a category of SC earned which has, in my case, the status credits from my flights. Then there is a category called 'others' that has the QF support SC but also the Bonus SC from DSC TravelPass bookings. Two questions here: 1. I am still waiting for...

    Qantas status rollover - error reversal

    Did the 250SC include any DSC? Just wondering as QF said no DSC will roll over but you never know....

    Mine took 4 weeks to come through, that was for flights mid Feb and the TravelPass DSC credited mid March

    Made any travel mistakes lately?

    Yes and that is why we decided to just do it another time. It is very unlikely to be checked in MEL on a flight from SYD but we did not wanna risk it. Who knows what is developing in the next few days and at least today we could cancel anything for free.

    Made any travel mistakes lately?

    We booked our Easter Trip to Adelaide and had to cancel this due to Victorian rules... sounds funny, right? - we have flown to SYD from BNE on 15.03 but that would still allow us into SA - we booked flights via MEL (SYD-MEL-ADL) as they were the only ones with seats on points (<<...here is the...

    Australian state border restrictions

    I am just a bit confused as we left Brisbane on the 15th. WA says you cannot enter if you have been to Brisbane 20.03 or after ACT says the same but after 11.03 VIC says the same but after 12.03 SA has no? restrictions yet We know there was 1 case in BNE in mid-March, but that is over 2 weeks...

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

    Cancelled a classic reward for 2 on Wednesday, got the points back for PAX 1 within a few hours but still waiting for the points for PAX 2 to come back. Weird that they aren't processed at the same time as it was on one PNR. Wonder if the same will apply to the tax, refund for PAX 1 before PAX 2.

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    Just to check I did not miss anything, how did you get to 164sc? I thought the first 3 are all 16sc each and the MEL to ASP is 24sc? That would be (16+16+16+24)*2=144sc?

    Flights to Uluru / Ayers Rock

    But AYQ-MEL is only available on the 13th, not on the 14th. As it is a birthday (weekend), not keen to fly on the 13th. Also looked at car rental from ASP, but that is just through the roof.

    Flights to Uluru / Ayers Rock

    It is so frustrating. We had booked this trip (1 PNR) for June as a Classic Reward, all flights on QF. (booked in late Jan/early Feb this year) SYD-ASP-AYQ (11.06) AYQ-ASP (14.06) ASP-DRW (15.06) DRW-SYD (19.06) After the cancellations in the last two days, it looks like this SYD-AYQ (11.06)...

    Flights to Uluru / Ayers Rock

    Same happened to us today with the ASP to AYQ cancelled for June and not really having a plan B. We booked SYD-ASP-AYQ and then AYQ-ASP-DRW. Guess another trip that won't happen as there are no other options on the day and time we had booked. Very annoying and makes it impossible to plan as we...
