    Double Status Credit - No double SC on domestic leg?

    Hey guys, So I recently flew MEL > SYD > LA and my ticket was purchased while there was in DSC promo (i think in may?). Anyways, I checked my activity statement and I saw that I got bonus SC for SYD > LA, but not the MEL > SYD route, eventhough it was 1 booking and was pretty the option...

    Should Qantas open more award seats to Points Club members?

    We often see cases where people have millions of Qantas Frequent Flyer points (e.g. through credit card spend), but can't get access to premium reward seats on long-haul Qantas flights because they only have Bronze or Silver status. As we know, Qantas releases more seats to Gold (and above)...

    Qantas denies double points due to definition of "booking"

    Well, it's not the first time Qantas have done me out of points, but it's the last time I'm taking it lying down. After registering on May 8 2019 for Double Points, I booked flights on May 13, departed on May 14 and off I went on a work trip to Chile. Curiously, the double points were not...

    Are Qantas Double Status Credit Promos Really Worth It?

    So I've been pondering lately whether the double status credit promos are really worthwhile... In my own experience even when i receive the Double SC targeted promos, I prefer to wait for Sale fares which I find are usually 50% off the Saver fares This effectively means that for the same $...

    Have Qantas change their policy? Previously I had successfully claim for Business Fare Qantas Point and Status Credit after bidding upgrade with Malaysia Airlines for a number of times. The recent trip was unsuccessful as the Qantas agent pointed to me that all bid upgrade now only paid base on...

    QF Double Status Credit Promos - I am not 100% sure I follow the logic anymore...

    Bear with me a moment..... the first time I remember any kind of status credit "promo" was in 2009 during the GFC. The company I was working for went bust and I went from 15x international business trips a year on QF to zero. Needless to say, I was jobless and grounded (pun intended). So keeping...

    Wrong (Higher) Boarding Pass Status

    Hi everyone, Back in February my QF WP status dropped to my LT SG status. Due to changes in work duties I rarely travel for work so the life time Gold status will now come into play for my personal international trips :) Anyway last week I did my first QF trip since the drop and checked in...

    QF Platinum status match to Star Alliance Gold?

    In the past where possible I have tried to consolidate my travels on One World carriers to retain status. I now have a number of flights coming up on Star Alliance carriers in the next six months, some of which are in economy and if possible would love have lounge access. Can anyone recommend...

    Qantas Tier Status Bonus ("75% more Qantas Points") Never appears

    Hey everyone! First time posting here and I would appreciate knowing if anyone else has the same issue I have discovered. I was wondering if someone could explain to me what Qantas' Tier Status Bonus applies to? From their website the criteria are: Qantas flights. I am gold so would have...

    Continuation of status

    Is there a value to have continuous status eg gold or platinum? Having had platinum for a few years I am going to lose it end of next travel year but more than likely regain the following year Wondering is it of value to do a status run to maintain? I will have 700 odd credits but not the 1200

    Buy Air Italy Gold status for €500

    Not that Air Italy status is of much use if you're not flying on Air Italy, but I notice that you can pay €500 to buy a year of Gold status in lieu of the usual qualification requirements. Now if only Air Italy would join Oneworld ;)...

    Answered Status credits on annual guaranteed redemption seats

    Hi all, Wondering if anyone has any experience on this. In relation to the guaranteed reward seats for Gold/Plat members; are these booked into revenue buckets and do you subsequently receive status credits on those flights? Thanks in advance.

    Advice on getting 281 QFF status credits in a week

    Hi all. I've got a BNE-MEL return trip (Flexi and Saver) and BNE-SYD-CBR-BNE (Saver, 2x flexi) trip booked before I hit the last day of my membership cycle. I just noticed I was (sort of) tantalisingly close to hitting Platinum and needed 281 status credits to get there. I'm thinking there's...

    Answered Has there been a Reduction in Silver baggage allowance for Silver Status flights to Europe? [no]

    As a retiree I usually only do one overseas trip a year and was surprised when booking a trip to Europe with Qantas recently to find the checked luggage allowance for Silver FF has been reduced to the same level as Bronze members. When did this change occur and why wasn't it publicized? Apart...
