    I booked a few reward tickets when the last DSC offer was current for flights taken before the end of Feb 2022. Given all the current lockdowns etc do you think there is any likelihood of QF allowing a date change that would take the date AFTER original final date and be when hopefully there...

    Qantas Business Class customers bumped to economy in Tokyo

    Maybe we could all use a VPN to book our QF flights and make our booking appear to be coming from a country in Europe, if we were downgraded we should be able to claim compensation under the Euro system?

    Overbooked: 2 boarding passes for 1 business-class seat (LATAM-QANTAS)

    My understanding (information provided to me at one time by QF reservations premium) is that QF control the inventory on the LAN code share flights from Aus. Surely this would make QF responsible to offer compensation for denied boarding?

    I have a US account (denominated in US$) and was hoping to be able to withdraw $US without any conversion costs, but if I withdraw max allowable the local AUD fee of $3.50 would be OK.

    ATM that dispenses $US

    Thanks pjm, did you by chance withdraw any US$, as I was wondering how the conversion (if any) would work, ie would they change the say $100 US into AUS and then back to US at their rates or if I used a US based card, would it just be a "stright deduction" from the account, plus maybe an ATM fee?
