    CX availability in J SYD-HKG-JFK better than SYD-HKG

    Looking for 3 seats in J for early September 2018 from SYD to LAX or JFK. Direct to LAX is always going to be a problem for a QF bronze so a few days in HKG flying CX metal is looking more likely. I would prefer to avoid an early departure out of SYD (CX110 at 7.30am) but CX162 at 10.05am looks...

    Increase charge for QF classic reward redemption on EK metal?

    In February 2014 I used my QF points and booked 3 classic rewards in J for DXB-GLA flying on EK (one way only). Total charge was AED240 and I spent a lovely Christmas with family in Scotland. I logged onto the QF site this morning to search for availability in October 2015 on the same route and...

    J award seats availability QF v EK

    I'm looking for 3 Business class award seats for GLA-DXB-SYD anytime in the first week of January 2015. A quick check on expert flyer for EK has a minimum of 7 business seats on their twice daily GLA-DXB sector under their flex award booking class O pretty much every day. They also have decent...

    SYD-GLA-SYD partner award - more points required for stopover?

    I'm currently planning a trip to Glasgow for Christmas 2014 for 3 of us in J on a classic award. We plan to spend a couple of days in DXB on the way over but just connect in DXB on the way back. If I book SYD-DXB and DXB-GLA as 2 different sectors online it is 156k points but only 128k points...

    JQ Starter fare with no checked baggage allowance - check in baby stroller?

    Just made Gold on QF last week and to celebrate we are heading SYD-MEL next week on JQ......Will be taking our 4 month old on her first flight and we are only away for 2 days with the grandparents so 10kg each for carry on only is plenty. Noticed on JQ website that infant cots and stollers do...

    QF points and SC's on Air Vanuatu?

    In the process of booking economy flights to Vanuatu a couple of questions have come up. If I book directly on Qantas.com.au with a QF flight number as a codeshare I will receive QF points but will I receive any SC? From the airline earning table it would appear that I won't but does anyone have...

    First time Silver & extension of renewal date.

    I have only recently started to fly QF for business and will attain silver next week. I have a renewal date of 30 June 10 and if I understand things correctly I will remain silver until at least 30 June 11? I have various flights to take (not booked) on QF earning 100SC between now and 30 June...

    2 QFF Accounts in 2 Countries?

    Like a few others on here I am a dual citizen (UK/Australia). The issue I have is that my Australian FF Account has an anniversary date at the end of June. I will not earn 350 SC to escape lowly bronze by then. I am about to book a LONE4 to begin in May and finish in September with a total SC...

    Codeshare 'tweaking' on LONE4??

    I am finalising a LONE4 and will be crediting to QF (currently bronze only). My schedule is pretty much fixed although I have a segment or two available to play with. I have priced this with the online booking tool with AA (priced in MEL-SYD on AA) and QF and will certainly be booking via AA to...

    LONE4 RTW advice please.

    I am preparing to book my first LONE4 for travel next April and have looked at the threads here and on flyertalk but would appreciate some expert advice. I am QF bronze and generally fly to the UK annually in economy with QF so I'm unlikely to attain even silver status. I generally take 2-3...

    OLCI for BA/Qantas award flights?

    I have booked reward flights SYD-SFO-LHR-HKG-SYD and have requested seats via Qantas by phone without an issue. The only flight on BA metal is SFO-LHR on BA 284 and I was advised BA will not accept seat requests - fair enough. On 'manage my bookings' on BA.com however I noticed that they allow...

    BA cancelled my return ticket without warning.

    We flew on QF from SYD-LHR return and landed in the UK just as the fog descended on LHR on 19 Dec 06. We stayed with friends for a few days and we were due to fly BA to GLA return (booked directly on BA.com) for a week in Scotland. We checked in online from our friends place before National TV...

    Best time to book SYD-LHR for Christmas 2006

    I'm heading to the UK for a white Christmas this year. Plan to leave Sydney around 15 December 2006 and fly home some time close to 10 January 2007. This trip will give me enough QFF for a free return flight next time so keen to stick to Qantas unless the extra cost over other airlines exceeds...

    Transfer UA points to QFF?

    My girlfriend and I have 16000 UA mileage plus points each from a one off trip through the US last year. We are close to reaching the total QFF points for 2 return trips SYD-LHR and would be interested in any way we can transfer these UA points to QFF through another points programme or card...
