    Flying Air Canada - Velocity points and lounge access?

    Yes you’ll get lounge.. don’t expect anything above a crowded regional QP. Shame there’s still no other benefits on the cards. Thought it would be an easy tie up given the other *A partners.. but then again, AC has a track record of providing disappointment and telling you it’s actually world...

    Qantas Increases Legroom Charges; Changes to Row 4 selection on most 737 flights

    But not on the RHS (I assume DEF) seats? So they aren’t aligned in even rows? I haven’t set foot on a 220 yet :)

    Qantas Increases Legroom Charges; Changes to Row 4 selection on most 737 flights

    Are QF considering the 2 of the 2-3 config an extra legroom seat? Without any extra legroom? They have no shame 😂😅

    Qantas Increases Legroom Charges; Changes to Row 4 selection on most 737 flights

    Here’s a question to consider - What even is the benefit you receive as a Platinum when on a plane, doing the actual flying - you know, the whole point? Personally, I’ve flown 21 sectors in the past 3 months - a third QF, a third OW, and a third *A. I’ve just started a fresh membership year...

    Partner (VA) Status benefits flying AC

    There’s been posts/quotes from the AC rep in the past year or two about AC honoring VA status properly like the other partners (UA/SQ/EY) - anyone heard anything lately? Really hard work holding 2x platinum from both VA and QF and trying to have any basic benefits flying around Canada. Unsure...

    Changes to Additional Baggage, Seat Selection and Unaccompanied Minor fees effective 18 April 2024

    This may have been missed by the AU audience - on top of the CA QF website the banner has links to new pricing policies for baggage and seat selection. Main changes I can see are increases to domestic overweight baggage and long haul exit row seats, with a new granular zone based system rather...

    Lounge Access Help Desk

    I believe yes, but expect some potential consideration to JQ8 departing T4 - eg drop bag at t4, sky train to t1, and back for departure. Might take some time!

    Double Status Credits promotion (Book by 27/2/24, travel 28/2/24-14/2/25)

    I've noticed a lot of dates in Jan/Feb for short hops on the triangle+ (bne<>syd<>mel<>adl) conveniently have zero flex seats available :)

    Oh I misinterpreted - thought you went from Y+ to J. I guess you got my freshly vacated Y+ seat! I’m WP.

    Qantas doesn't care about priority boarding

    QF11/12 is a zoo, no structured lines just a bunch of pointless signs hanging about, with staff calling out for any First pax hanging about. Same experience for both - Qf 11 at gate 9 last year and QF12 last week in LAX. Ryanair is more organized than this.

    Flying Air Canada - Velocity points and lounge access?

    What happened to the improved reciprocal benefits on AC with VA status? It was talked about a year ago by an AC rep.. anyone seen anything lately? Lounge is a plus, but seats/bag would be more useful given the state of AC.. FWIW I’ve had no issues accessing MLL throughout Canada with my...

    The Qantas Newbie Questions Thread

    Sorry for the simple post - couldn’t find what I was looking for with the search. What’s the go with bulkhead / first row blocks on QFi? Flying QF12 in PE next week and entire bulkhead row is blocked (EF says blocked not allocated). Are they holding in case 7 P1 book last minute? As a WP...

    Qantas doesn't care about priority boarding

    Data point from a couple of week ago - QF 11 on a just over half full flight (which is still 250+ pax) - PB was so bad the gate agents were calling out to the scrum for “Any First Class pax”…

    Virgin Australia Discover Gold (Status Match)

    When I applied, it was 80SC for gold, and 200SC and 1 sector for platinum. On getting my confirmation, it referenced 1sector for gold and 2 sectors for platinum… and of Course I go back to check the website and it’s been changed. anyone got a screenshot?

    No Velocity status benefits on Air Canada?

    Guessing also no baggage allowance/seating for VA status? Aeroplan really is horrible.. would much rather be crediting to VA

    Qantas extends current status Until at least March 2021

    Extension applied on my account tonight. App FF card updated, and a line item for 0 SC & points titled 'Status Extended for 12 Months' in the activity statement. Removal of target remaining for WP, only showing P1 target.

    Realistically you only access the perks if you are flying... otherwise its a shiny coaster in your wallet.
