    Is there a way to tell if a flight is about to be canceled?

    Did the flight end up going in both directions? I've got the same problem with flights being pulled but o formal cancellation and just wondering whether to get ahead of the game and book with opposition.

    Downgrades and flight cancellations

    Hi all, We are a family of 4 adults booked cash J fares MEL-CNS rtn in separate bookings flying A330 for a holiday. It appears our outbound leg qf702 departing 21 August has had an aircraft change to a 737 and our return leg qf703 on 28 August is cancelled as they have stopped selling the...

    Qantas to shut airport service desks, force customers onto self-service

    We had a very similar problem with the Victorian snap 5 day lockdown back in February. When it was announced at approx 1pm that afternoon my father was in the air flying from north qld and landed in Melbourne to the news lockdown was beginning that night. Trying to book a return flight on the QF...

    Qantas to shut airport service desks, force customers onto self-service

    Talk about victim blaming. People travel for many reasons and I do not see why this matters. QF failed in their basic responsibility of selling a ticket that is clearly in their own T&Cs.

    Qantas to fast track airline loyalty program status

    In the same boat. The VA service and comp. econ x for plat. might keep me rusted on. As someone on the taller side the extra leg room is number 1 in my books. I don't care too much for free drinks and snacks as I usually eat in the lounge beforehand, plus you can take sandwiches from the lounge...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    In attempt to make this thread less political and animal farm, maybe we should begin predicting an election date and open borders? 1623763828 We deserve a raod map to hold our elective representatives to account for the very reasons you mentioned. If it is does not go to plan and is articulated...

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    A plan need to open the borders needs to be committed to and articulated to the Australian public now, so we mere mortals can plan our lives.

    Predictions of when international flights may resume/bans lifted

    Lolol...this thread hasn't aged very well! 😃😃😃 What a farce. The conspiracy theorist in me says the PM has learnt from the state premiers a lesson in getting re-elected. Keeping the borders closed makes some feel safe, the perception covid is being managed well and will return the favour with...

    Slow posting of QFF points and SCs after a JQ flight

    Agree. Qantas group do themselves no favours. I switched to VA years ago because of the very poor QF service and never looked back until... I was recently granted gold status through their challenge, although I have continued flying VA, mainly for the economy x seating as a platinum. Maybe this...

    Slow posting of QFF points and SCs after a JQ flight

    Had a couple of flights with max bundles from 24th April not crediting. Lodged a claim through the QFF portal and waited the required 14 days for partner claims. Crickets. Sent a follow up at 9.53am this morning through the online form...

    What's with all the red-eyes ex DRW?

    Planes don't earn money sitting idle. Rather than leave them parked overnight in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, send them to Darwin and back!

    Qantas to shut airport service desks, force customers onto self-service

    Usually different calendar dates. Now I think about it, I generally encountered this problem when I have called up our travel agent and changed a QF flight for an earlier QF flight (in a mixed booking). All good - as long as they continue to have a staff member at that point of the process for...

    Qantas to shut airport service desks, force customers onto self-service

    Are they still going to have roaming agents near the self service kiosks? I quite often fly both QF and VA on the same booking and on numerous occasions, myself and colleagues have not been able to check-in either using either the QF app or the kiosks despite entering the correct QF 6 digit code...

    QF702 MEL-CNS Award Availability

    They had J award availability in both directions (702/703) on A330 for August a couple of weeks ago. We stumped up for cash fares as needed the status credits and was also on sale. Peak/dry season in Cairns, especially for Melbournians trying to escape the last of winter.

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    Judging by the many threads on the internet similar to this I don't think it matters what time you call, I still spent 45 minutes two day ago before giving up and this was under 'normal' conditions (before borders were closing again). I find it telling QF has a voice prompt saying they will...

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    Wow, just wow. I need to make a business class booking on behalf of my elderly mother and want to use her voucher from a previously cancelled flight, which the website is not recognising. I spent 45 minutes on hold before giving up 2 days ago. Finally got though to someone after 1h 2min on...

    VA status extensions

    I'm not sure where your previous post is but by your reckoning those of us that had already re-qualified should have our status extended for another year after this 'benefit period' finishes (so into 2022)? However anecdotally and as evidenced by previous posts in this thread this is not...

    VA status extensions

    I'm in the same boat, requalified platinum on my own steam back in February before the 'rona status extension/gifts announcement was made. My review date was June and as I had already requalified the status extension and status gift meant zip to me. I'm based in Melbourne so haven't flown at...
