    Flight Credits & Double Status Credits

    Best thing to do is to call Qantas and ask them to convert your booking to a Travel Pass with double status credits. The Travel Pass takes about 2-3 weeks to be issued by email and locks you into Qantas (i.e. you waive your right to a refund). There is a cooling off period of 48 hours in case...

    The definitive thread on QF IT gripes.

    On the status activity screen on the website, I see the sentence You've earned X Status Credits towards attaining Platinum One. However, on the status tab of the iOS app, the same sentence appears, but the value of X is about 300 SCs lower. I'm not sure if it's just my account but it's been...

    QF9 turnback 8/9/18

    I was booked on QF10 from LHR-MEL this week. About 3 weeks ago I noticed the PER-MEL sector had changed to a 737 and I was downgraded from PE to Y. A call to Qantas was very helpful and I was rebooked via SIN. I’m not sure if this is correct but the agent said the aircraft change was due to the...

    Changing to earlier flights on non-flexible tickets

    I have QP Silver, but because she didn't even look at her monitor, and she may not have noticed my silver bag tags, it's possible that she didn't know about my [lack of] status.

    Changing to earlier flights on non-flexible tickets

    I actually disagree with that. I could have easily been put on an earlier SYD-MEL domestic flight when transiting through the new transfer facility. I gave the agent my bag and asked if it was possible to catch the earlier flight, and she told me (in a very friendly way) that they weren't...

    Need 80 SCs, thinking of flying MEL-TSV

    That's not bad! Well, I'm based in MEL and I was planning on spending a day or two in TSV or CNS. I've got some any-seat points to burn, but I'm willing to spend the money if it's not too expensive.

    Need 80 SCs, thinking of flying MEL-TSV

    I would like to get 80 SCs on a flight to either Townsville or Cairns at some stage in December (I'm flexible with dates), and I'd like to know which routes I can take to get there the cheapest. I know that flying via BNE would only earn 30 SCs each way, but I'm not too sure about other...

    QFF Ideas & Suggestions

    One things needs to be brought back: Lifetime Qantas Club membership! It was discontinued about 6 months before my 18th birthday, and I was very disappointed. If that can't be done, a 24 hour promotional period (such as the recent waived joining fee) should allow FF members to join as lifetime...
