    Plat One Function 26NOV14

    Did every P1 get this invite via email? I didn't get one...maybe they're selective in who they give it to even at P1 level? "We're very privileged to have you as a Platinum One Frequent Flyer. To celebrate the end of 2014, and to thank you for your loyalty, I'd like to invite you and a guest...

    Looks like QF/EK Alliance isn't working for QF. Europe now via London not DXB.

    What's the point of the alliance if QF is now telling agents in their availability displays to book via London and connect on BA for Europe options. Maybe they should have stayed with BA. Interesting article that shows what is happening. Travel to Europe? QANTAS suggests you go via London -...

    No more QF chauffeur drive to LAX and DFW

    Well I guess that answers the question of when JFK will get the QF chauffer drive...also very unlikely to JNB and SCL now as well. So much for being "harmonised" with Emirates partner.. Here it is from QF: Chauffeur Drive update Effective 1 July 2014, Qantas' complimentary Chauffeur Drive...

    Same day international "status run" - is it OK?

    Just wondering if anyone has done an international same day status run? I'm thinking of a MEL to AKL return basically staying airside transit in AKL and coming back. Would this cause problems coming back in Australia with customs/immigration? Has anyone done this type of thing? PS -sorry for...

    QANTAS open day 19 October

    Who has scored tickets to the QANTAS open day 19OCT at SYD to check out the 787, new 717 and 747? I think it was only given to Platinum one people. It's mainly staff out there.

    QF operational upgrades for Platinum One

    The Plat One treatment leaves so much to be desired...registered for a long haul upgrade from Bangkok to Sydney Economy to Business. It finally came through today even though the Business cabin has been pretty wide open most of the whole week - so much for WP1 getting considered earlier to...

    Scarce access to QANTAS Intl First and Business awards

    I am still trying to understand QF’s logic of basically blocking the release of any P (First) or U (Business) award seats to destinations such as LAX, SIN and LHR. You may find a scattering of seats throughout the year mid-week (Tu/We/Th) but that’s about it. LAX is the worst culprit – and in...

    QF Platinum One - how successful has it really been?

    How successful has P1 really been? Do you think it's has lived up to all the marketing hype? I reached P1 late last year, I wasn't in the original first batch of people, but so far in experience with it, it has been largely disappointing... A lot of marketing hype that QF hasn't really...

    Platinum One: QF cabin crew and ground staff not aware of status codes

    It seems with QF so pre-occupied with grounding their airline they've forgotten to brief and tell the people where it counts most about the new status codes for P1 and Chairman's P1. The new codes that are now appearing on the on board passenger manifest for crew and in QF's Amadeus/Altea for...

    QANTAS Platinum one - might not be going ahead

    I have heard through the grapevine that the peeps at QF are nowhere near ready to launch plat one - they are still trying to decide exactly what it is to offer. It could potentially be delayed until next year or scraped all togther. Not so smart of QF dragging their feet with this one -...
