    QF A380 out of action for 6 weeks

    Just to give you our experience with this - we were booked on the bulkhead rows on the A380. We are flying JFK - LAX - MEL and then MEL - LAX - JFK with our 6 month old. I had been logging in regularly to check that we hadn't been bumped from the bassinet seat. One one off chance a couple of...

    Advanced Seat Selection no longer just a QFF benefit (if you want to pay)

    No matter - just found the answer in the small print under 'help'. You have to book for EVERY flight. :evil:

    Advanced Seat Selection no longer just a QFF benefit (if you want to pay)

    Hmmm just about to reserve my seats AND pay for them even though I have been a Qantas Club member for years - ugh. Anyway - you can't just pick and choose what flight you want to reserve seats on. For example - I don't want to reserve a seat on JFk - LAX but you must reserve them to move on...

    Cannot change flights online?

    Found the answer - it must be because I don't have a 'straight' JFk-MEL return flight. :) I thought I was going mad!

    Cannot change flights online?

    Is this for everyone or just me? My JFK-MEL flights has no option to change online. Yet in May, I had to change a booking just like this and it was fine. Have Qantas recently taken away the option to change online? I cannot understand why!?!

    QantasAMEX: $0 Annual Card Fee, 5000 points, $50 on Qantas Services

    GSTOK call them back on the 1300 and play totally dumb. "Oh hi there! I am just ringing because I was checking my statements and realised for some reason that my 5,000 points haven't gone through. I thought "That's funny!" because my $50 qantas refund went through with no hassles... I just...

    QantasAMEX: $0 Annual Card Fee, 5000 points, $50 on Qantas Services

    It has been 2 months since I had my first transaction and no 5000 points. But like others, I had already received my $50 Qantas credit. I rang them on Friday and the guy was great - just checked my details, checked my points history to double check that I hadn't received them. He was really...

    QantasAMEX: $0 Annual Card Fee, 5000 points, $50 on Qantas Services

    I haven't got my bonus points either but my $50 credit appeared for the Qantas Club renewal. :) Normally with any of these bonus points they take a while to come through - I think it took about 3 months on my ANZ card.

    QantasAMEX: $0 Annual Card Fee, 5000 points, $50 on Qantas Services

    I just had to renew my QC so used the card and will be interesting to see if that falls into the Qantas spend category or not. Otherwise, am really happy with the card!

    QantasAMEX: $0 Annual Card Fee, 5000 points, $50 on Qantas Services

    Just to report - I got a letter that was *very* professionally written stating the mistake etc and with a new table of charges etc. It was definitely a template mistake. :)

    Last minute Q's - Qantas/AA/AlaskaAir/LAX

    Thank you so much for letting me know - I think I will do just that. The Jetstar flight from HNL to MEL was just ok. The check-in at HNL was hellish. The plane coming in was late so we were late departing. I had originally booked HNL - MEL direct when a month later they rang to say they will...
