    Qantas Green frequent flyer tier

    Ok, interesting development for me. Since trying to get the final leaf back in May with a carbon offset of an existing booking through manage my booking, last week I booked flights on Thursday, applied for carbon offset Friday through manage my booking, got informed of green status success on...

    APEC Business Travel Card

    I tried to update my passport details online, however the system failed to recognise the attachments (front and rear of APEC card). As such, I was forced to use the 929 form. From 929 form submission, it took 3 days to get the confirmation email.

    Qantas Green frequent flyer tier

    Annoyingly my flights are booked through corp traveller and therefore I needed to go the MMB route… seems like that route was a dead end though

    Did they deduct the points for the offset?

    Did anyone request through MMB and not have points deducted?

    Qantas Green frequent flyer tier

    Interesting… I requested offset about 3 weeks ago for an existing booking, took the flights last week, and just noticed that they didn’t deduct the points

    If you request the offset prior to flying those particular sectors, do you need to fly to have them count as a green leaf, or can the green leaf be applied prior to travel? If it’s post travel (which I suspect is the case) how long post flight/s until they take the points and give the leaf?

    Qantas Domestic & International Business Class meals/menus

    I flew MEL-PER return in J a couple of weeks ago and had that same meal on both sectors… sans plastic!

    I was thinking that same thing about not renewing when mine expires in September…

    APEC Business Travel Card

    Sorry to highjack the thread, however I contacted the Department to enquire as to whether they would consider extending the validity of the APEC cards due to many folks inability to travel for the past 2 years. Their response, in part, read: "If we receive further similar requests from other...

    EK415 timing change [15 hours earlier]

    For all those planning on exploring DXB during your extended layover, please note that there are 3 EK F lounges (one each in concourses A, B and C). Each of the lounges has a unique character so if you have the time, you may as well check them all out.

    Qantas is adding plant-based meals to its inflight menu… did this actually happen?

    This thread relates to menu items rather than a particular diet. Plant based menu items would never contain any form of meat.

    Qantas is adding plant-based meals to its inflight menu… did this actually happen?

    I see a vegetarian option on the first lounge menu and each course of the J menu posted upthread... Yes, I noticed that… means I won’t starve to death (just may be left hungry based on what those options entail lol).

    Qantas is adding plant-based meals to its inflight menu… did this actually happen?

    As far as I know “plant based” is just a new age marketing term for a vegetarian (not necessarily vegan) food item…

    Qantas is adding plant-based meals to its inflight menu… did this actually happen?

    In late October 2021 there was various reporting that “From November onwards, Qantas will roll out a new menu across its international flights and in the lounges including a number of new plant-based options.” Can anyone please confirm whether this actually occurred? I am due to fly MEL-LAX in...

    Successful CSM requests

    My experiences are predominantly with Qantas. I fly almost exclusively international, however on the odd occasion I do fly domestic I would say I get greeted maybe 50% of the time. On international with QF or EK it’s more like 99%, although very recently there is occasionally just a brief visit...

    Successful CSM requests

    This is an interesting thread. I agree with the offer being more sincere on QF than EK. I would say EK service in general is very robotic and impersonal. Currently Plat for the last couple of years but even when Gold have been given some nice special treatment on and off. Cheese plates, wine...
