    Looking for help booking Oneworld Classic Reward

    Is the JFK-SFO situation normal - pretty much yes! US airlines have a habit of providing tight connections - it's their job to get you there if you miss one! (when that would be, who knows!)

    Looking for help booking Oneworld Classic Reward

    Alaska (AS) only has First Class and Economy. Looks like BA identify AS First as Business class, while QF identify it as First class (which is common for QF), which would effectively rule it out for you. When booking between US coasts consider flights via any of the American (AA) hubs in the...

    Changing a Classic Business OWA Booking

    We're booked on a multi-leg award booking from AU to USA/CAN and back in Sep/Oct 2022. We've discovered that we'd like to change two legs on the booking, moving them forward two days and ending up in a different destination (but still within the rules of the fare). We're not getting past first...

    WestJet lounge access as QFF Gold member

    We're travelling in the US and Canada later this year on a OWA Classic Business reward flight. WestJet aren't part of OneWorld, but I have thought of booking a separate WestJet flight within Canada from YVR. As a QFF Gold member, would I have any access to their YVR domestic lounges (the...

    Can someone please provide me with some clarity of what happens when you can't make a sector within a specific RTW ticket. In my case we're booked in J as follows later this year: ADL-MEL-LAX-SFO-ANC (stop 1 - QF/AS) ANC-SEA-YYC (stop 2 - AS) YYC-ORD-BOS (stop 3 - AA) BOS-CLT-SEA (stop 4 - AA)...

    Please note that a stopover is 24 hours or more on the ground. You can land in a city one day, stay overnight, as long as you're gone within 24 hours for it to count as a transit. Also, S7 Airlines (based in Moscow) have just been suspended from Oneworld for reasons that are now fairly obvious...

    Yes I do now - it doesn't help when they publish (republish/update) an article today and then list the first responses with the date very faintly listed. Apologies to all

    Is it a three carrier minimum, or two non-Qantas carriers? (ie. you can include QF, but it doesn't count as one of the minimum two)

    QR withholding award seats from Qantas?

    Ever think it's simply QR trying to ensure that the many cashed up QF J class pax PAY for two seats rather than use QF points. They don't want to completely block access, so they allow one, but most people travel in twos or more. Also, points holders from other airlines are less likely to book...

    Qantas Call Centre Long Wait Times

    I've never made it through to the survey in 25 calls - always drops out beforehand!

    I've called twice today, waited on hold for an hour on each occasion, spoke to operators, with each call dropping out before business was concluded. I warned the second agent at the start of the call and she gave a commitment to callback if the call dropped out. So far today the volume of...

    Anyone know the hours for the different QFF service centres? I've just spent an hour on hold, followed by 30 mins in a call without flights getting booked, then the call dropped out! Soul-destroying! They have service centres in Australia and South Africa, and possibly elsewhere. From...

    So why do QFF now include the information bubble indicating that the AS flight will be in Business? This wasn't the case previously, and I'm sure AS haven't radically changed their First Class offering.

    Like if they didn't put the information bubble there indicating that you'd be flying Business, we'd probably just accept it. But when they blatantly tell you you're flying Business, but don't let you book it, it sticks in your craw!

    I was looking at booking a series of flights on the weekend, which included a few AS legs. AS only seem to have a First Class (similar to QF domestic Business) and economy, with no Business Class. Recently, I've noticed that AS First awards feature an information popup, saying that one or more...

    SYD-DFW was one leg I looked at as part of a multi-city booking. Even by itself (to prove a point) I couldn't do it.

    Thanks heaps. I gather you have to have one of the paid subscriptions to see award seats?
