    Points Club - new bonuses and benefits!

    And yet the Qantas club membership is *still* not transferrable for your most important higher tier members. Shame, Qantas.

    Qantas extends current status Until at least March 2021

    I got the email too. Although I am lifetime gold. Does that mean my status continues for a year after I die?

    Qantas Points Club Discussion

    So effectively they are giving more benefits to non-status fliers than those that have status. Surely they could replace the (very valuable) Qantas Club benefit with something else for Gold and higher members? Points, SCs, upgrades, anything! Or at the very least make the membership...

    Trip to South America

    If it’s the same ticket they have as it’s an IATA rule. Same would be even if you connected from virgin to Qantas to United in the same intinerary.

    Trip to South America

    Was that all on one ticket? The problem seems to arise with separate tickets.

    Qantas Premier Credit Card

    What I don't get is how citibank hasn't improved this. I think this is about the fourth or fifth citibank product I've enrolled for over the last 10 years and it's as bad as it was on day one. I applied over a week ago and haven't heard nada.

    Trip to South America

    you were lucky with checking through your bags. Latham won’t do it in separate tickets even from Latam to Latam. I flew Syd-SCL-Aep last year and no amount of convincing would get the agent to check through my bags from my award trip (to SCL) and on to AEP (paid). As a result had to clear...

    LTP - the $1,500,000 reality

    It really takes a special type of flyer to make it. I’ve mentioned here before I have a friend who does weekly j returns to singapore. That’s 250 service credits a week so about 10 years to make LTP. She’ll never make it though as it just where her and the company she works for are at the...

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    I remember it well. It was not well received but that was pre the days of credit card sign on bonuses. You get way more out of the program now if you fly and spend.

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    I'm not sure this has been mentioned, but it certainly is not the biggest overhaul in the program history! - What about the move 25 years ago to move from EQK to status credits. Before then only "Golds" (which was top tier) got free Qantas Club and OW didn't exist. - Then there was the change...

    New Search Tool

    It seems the new QF search tool has been rolled out on the mobile website. I was searching for some flights last night SYD - DPS for June next year - really just to check if additional seats had been added. If I searched for specific dates, it gives the selection to use points or use cash as...

    Qantas FF announcement 20 June - "biggest overhaul" in program history

    You'd be surprised about just how much some people fly. I made over 10,000 SCs in one year while living in the UK by doing weekly LHR-JFK trips in First on BA for the best part of a year (this was probably 12 years ago now so back when partners earned the same SCs as Qantas). I have a friend...

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    re: Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options I certainly was unable to book a same day turnaround despite whatever the flight schedule says. Check some other destinations too.

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    re: Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options I don't even think you could do it that. Certainly when I looked for my trip I couldn't on the z class fares.

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    re: Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options It is impossible to go BKK-KUL-MNL-KUL-BKK same day. May be different if you are going to LHR.

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    re: Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options I was grilled by a customs officer in DPS doing something similar and was completely honest - well almost. I said exactly what I had done - but said that my hobby is flying and it is a good way for me to get some quiet time away from a crazy...

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    re: Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options The CX lounge in BKK is MUCH better than the Louis tavern lounge that MH direct you to. Cook to order noodle bar and Tattinger champagne. The CX lounges all have printers too if you want to print boarding passes for future flights. None of...

    Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options

    re: Discussion/Q&A on Best QF Status Run Options My credit card statement says that it is THB6600 for each direction (for 13200 total) booked on the MH website. You can't do a same day turnaround to MNL. I stayed at the Hotel Belmont at resorts world - mostly because it is super close...
