    QF2 bag drop off in the morning at LHR

    I’m flying on QF2 out of London next week. Will the Qantas staff let me check in bags first thing in the morning, while QF10 check in is open? I’m staying at the airport and might be a bit tight getting back to the airport after a long day, so if I can drop them off first thing that would...

    No JAL flights Tokyo-Sydney in October 2019?

    I'm trying to book a points ticket to Japan... is there an issue with JL flights showing availability online? Last week I booked online 2x J tickets for SYD-NRT for 12 Oct 2019 (I booked it 353 days out), but I'm looking at return dates on a day that seats should already have been released (330...

    Oversized check in luggage

    Does anyone have any experience checking in luggage that's pretty obviously oversize? It's basically a giant duffle bag (ostensibly a camping/swag bag) that's 115cm long x 45cm wide x 45cm high (= 205cm 'total'). It'll be heavy, but under the 32kg weight limit of a Gold/Platinum FF. Will the...

    Points upgrade granted, then rescinded at the gate

    Wondering if anyone has had a similar experience. I am curious as to how/why this occurs. I’d put in for a points upgrade (flex economy to business) on QF12 JFK-SYD on Wednesday. Checking in at JFK, no sight of upgrade. At the gate, the light flashes red and they give me a premium economy...

    Avoiding price increase when changing dates

    Hi all (apologies if this is better in a general forum), A couple of months ago I booked a room at a Marriott in NYC from 21-28 June, anticipating those were the date I'd need to be in town. But I was out by a day, and I'm actually getting in a day later, 22 June. When I try to change the room...

    How long for a reward ticket to issue?

    Hi all, I booked an Emirates reward ticket last night, it issued within a few minutes no problem. An hour later (10pm-ish) I booked a Royal Jordanian-Qatar reward ticket, but it still hasn't issued. The points are gone and it's sitting in my bookings list. How long should I leave it...

    Points/status credit earn on AA codeshare with LY

    Hey everyone, Flying MAD-TLV-LHR, both on AA flight numbers (AA9892 and AA8371) but on LY metal. From what I can see on the Qantas earn table, there is no restriction to earning points on AA flights that are codeshared with non-oneworld airlines: "Qantas Points and Status Credits are...

    Checking bags through to Nikki flight

    Hi, I booked an Etihad ticket, SYD-AUH-VIE return. I'm on VA metal to AUH, then HG to Vienna. My agent then added a VIE-TLV on HG to that, too - I have a 12 hour connection in Vienna so that I can have a break, stretch my legs, and eat some strudel. When I went to check in at the VA counter...

    Qantas misprogrammed domestic fare?

    Hi everyone, I just found this and thought I'd let everyone else know. Qantas has a sale advertised for $115 one way, SYD-MEL. But... fares are showing up for $83. Even for the Easter long weekend (which should start at $155). Fri Apr 3 Mon Apr 6 I can't ever...

    Delayed LAN801 - how late before they put you on a QF flight?

    Hey everyone -- pardon the part-whinge, part-asking for advice, part-mea culpa. So I'm off home tomorrow morning via the LA801 AKL-SYD flight, then connecting with a QF SYD-MEL on a separate ticket (I'll get to that soon -- I know, I know). The LAN website is showing that the flight is...

    A status run: reassure me, tell me I'm not crazy

    Hey all -- I guess here I'm looking for a little reassurement. I want to know that I'm not alone in the world. I need to know my craziness isn't unique. I'm going on an expensive status run to make sure I make Platinum in the days before my anniversary… Here's my story: I'm sitting on...

    Cheap flights Oz-LHR (BA)

    These aren't extraordinarily priced, but certainly worth recognising. I booked a return to LHR flight yesterday based on these fares. I was going anyway and this made it seem reasonable to me to fly oneworld instead of a cheaper carrier...

    Cancelling Qantas flights and rebooking them

    Hey all, I've got some Red e-deal QF flights booked for March: MEL-ADL-PER then PER-ADL-MEL. I'd now like to change to come back via Sydney (ie PER-SYD-MEL). I know that cancelling flights online and re-booking them doesn't incur a fee, so I want to use that Option if possible. I know I...

    QC membership, BA flight, oneworld lounge at LAX

    Hi all, I wanted to confirm something with you to make me feel a little better... I'm on a BA flight from LAX-LHR tonight, and I have a QC membership. I walked into the oneworld lounge, showed my card and my boarding pass, and the lady at the door said I wasn't allowed in, that I had to be...

    Qantas Magazine says I can check in on my iPhone?

    I didn't bring my Qantas mag off the plane with me, and I can't remember exactly what it said, but I'm quite sure it said that I was now able to check-in online, on my iPhone, and choose a seat "in the car on the way to the airport"? Now, that's definitely not available for me on my iPhone...

    Connection questions

    Hi all, I've got a question about connection times and whether I'll be able to make a flight. Also, if my baggage will be checked through. I'm looking at flying LAX-JFK on QF107 which arrives 17:30. Then out of JFK-LHR leaving at 19:05 on a BA flight. Alternatively, I was looking at an AA...
