    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...

    Qantas Platinum One experiences?

    Also PlebStatus in relation to your seating once it's assigned they shouldn't reassign to someone else even if they have an higher status. The move of seat can only be justified for true operational requirements not because he/she has higher status than you.

    Exactly. The WP line/Premium Desk are fantastic.

    Qantas Platinum One experiences?

    Like I'll be sure to see the back of them - and yes as bizarre as it seems I would rather see a group of 6 useless SSTs lose their jobs than the whole reservations department of BNE and MEL. That is very sad. They actually have people that do amazing work.

    Qantas Platinum One experiences?

    Totally agree John - it's all about attitude and being nice. That's why I don't bother calling SST CBR - I get everything done with the Premium Desk who are absolutely delightful and provide excellent service. If your inference is that I was somehow rude or had a bad attitude to the SST that is...

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

    Not sure what you're looking at QF.com but if you ask for Sydney to Rome it shows as first preference SYD-LON-ROM. What do timings have to do with it? QF.com wouldn't show an "entirely different story" as it uses Amadeus with the "e-travel Management" front end platform - so what the agents see...

    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 -...

    Qantas Platinum One experiences?

    P1 has been the biggest joke ever. You will see it drop even further with numbers. I am cancelling all my forward bookings where possible and using other airlines to ensure I won't requalify. The people in Canberra are the nastiest ever with attitude. I hope they're in the batch of 5000 people...

    Cafe breakfast is gone

    While it's no longer called Cafe Breakfast it's still the same cough! The "egg" dish I had on the Singapore-Melbourne is a joke. Why do they bother? Qf wants to pretend it's actually serving something but it's obvious it's a half baked attempt. And on the Australia to Asia flights the "prior to...

    Worth stretching for Platinum One?

    NO !!!! It is the biggest load of broken promises ever. If you're after lots of attitude and rudeness from the SST in Canberra then go for it. I get everything done with the Premium Desk who are fantastic…have no reason to call SST - they truly are a waste of time.

    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...

    Heads up about program changes

    If anyone wants to use the "points+pay" as maybe a type of replacement to the MASA (obviously heaps and heaps more points) it works out to approx $1 = 123 points. That's how I calculated it... Maybe people can use this if there is a cheap sale fare ?

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

    re: Same day international "status run" - is it OK? Thanks serfty...I will give it a go...it's a nice way to spend the day, check out some lounges and be "international" for a day. :-)

    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...
