    Life Time Gold - The [Realistic] Holy Grail

    Thanks PF, I thought that was the case, but just wanted to be certain. Recently relocated to DXB and have switched my travel (mostly) to EK and just about to hit EK SG (but don't think I'll be able to maintain it), so good to know QF SG will always be there for me.

    Life Time Gold - The [Realistic] Holy Grail

    Is the a minimum sector requirement or anything similar with LTG, or can you literally fly on QF once every 2 years and still be SG?

    Emirates Status Match - Successful

    Tried for status match for my wife (QF PS) and myself (QF & VA WP) on the weekend. All cards expire in the next 3 months. Was told before they match will have to show cards or some proof of greater than 6 months validity. Was told they can submit a request to upgrade the status to silver for us...

    QF selling more "extra legroom" Y seats - 80A/K,71D, Int. bullhead & Dom. Exit

    Re: Qantas Domestic charging for exit row seats now?! The point is instead of differentiating themselves from the competition, they are lowering themselves to the same level, while at the same time the competition is rising. Previously people flew QF because they were better - now they are...

    Question for Lesley 2014 Melbourne

    But Coles and Woollies don't put themselves into the situation of offering to answer questions, building an expectation that they will be answered, and the providing nothing answers.

    Question for Lesley 2014 Melbourne

    Wow! It took weeks to come up with those answers? Many are just a rework of the program T's & C's, which most on this board are already acutely aware of.

    Qantas removes Lounge Access for QP members on EK flights from Oct 1

    Travelled through DXB twice in last three weeks with Mrs and two juniors (4 & 8), QF WP, QF flight numbers and metal. First time welcomed with open arms, toys given to the kids etc. Second time was asked how many guests when they saw the gang walk in. You could see she was just about to deny...

    Best LHR T3 lounge option?

    Travelling out of LHR terminal 3 tomorrow on QF and was wondering what the best lounge might be as a QF WP? Tried searching with no luck but happy to be directed to a relevant thread of which I am sure there is one. I found one for almost every other port!

    QF Upgrades - Successes or Failures (post results)

    Re: QF Upgrade Success Rate Received a text at T-51 for 4 x Y-J upgrade for family on LHR-DXB this week. As of a week ago flight was showing 9's across the board so was pretty confident. Saturday's DXB-SYD has been showing 0's for weeks so not so confident of 4x upgrades on that one!

    QF Upgrades - Successes or Failures (post results)

    Re: QF Upgrade Success Rate It was all a bit strange. About 3 days before travel and extra leg showed up in MMB. The original BNE-SYD-LHR was still there, but a SYD-LHR appeared along side it (same date & flight #). Check in in BNE took some time as the agent said the extra booking...

    QF Upgrades - Successes or Failures (post results)

    Re: QF Upgrade Success Rate Funny you should ask. I have just checked my account to see if the points had posted, and while the points for QF1 SYD-LHR have posted as a single flight, no points have been deducted for the upgrade.

    Limited seat selection QFi @ T-80?

    At T-100 I was still hopeful of my own upgrade coming through, with EF showing F3 J9 W8, but that has all changed in the last 24 hours and now we are F3 J1 W4. Now I would just be happy to be able to select the middle seat I left my self in row 69!!

    Limited seat selection QFi @ T-80?

    Have I outsmarted myself? Selected myself 33G (33F empty) upstairs on the A380 with the rest of the family downstairs taking up D/E/G in a row downstairs, set a seat alert thinking that if upgrades are handed out they will likely be from upstairs, potentially freeing up the rest of row 33 for...

    Flight Availability/Loadings & Upgrade Probability Help Desk

    I guess that is the black art of yield management. Just so I have this right, F3 A2 as shown above means there is at least 3 seats available for sale in F bucket and at least 2 available in A, but not necessarily 5 seats available at the front of the plane? Could be four spare seats left in first.
