    Refund with expired CC

    Hi All Like many I'm having to cancel an upcoming Qantas flight. The refund should go back onto a cc, problem was it was a churner which is closed. Are people contacting Qantas before cancelling or just cancelling and then going through the process. Cheers

    Will points be refunded?

    Hi All Used some QFF points to book some flights to Bali for the family on Jetstar. (I can hear people laughing now... but that's ok) In the current situation travelling overseas could be a risk. If I was to cancel the flights would the points be refunded or do they go down the gurgler?

    Using a travel agent for lowly bronze QFF flyer

    In theory could a travel agent make it easier for me to book a complicated multi city flight booking without having to resort to the long wait times on the phone to Qanats. A close friend owns a travel agency but I guess I have the problem of transferring them the points. Is there any...

    Hi All just wondering if someone can clarify an upgrade question. Purchased a sale fare a while back which from my understanding can’t be upgraded.
