    Status credit on multi leg itinerary

    We have a booking for MEL to BNK ( direct flight) in Oct 2022. Yesterday I received an email with flight change information and it is no more direct with a stop over in Sydney. Does this mean we will receive status credits as per the individual legs or the actual direct flight that I had booked...

    Is it worth paying extra for more QFF status credits?

    Hi All, Brand new here so apologies if this is in the wrong spot, but just wanted to get some thoughts from more experienced people. I joined QFF just pre-covid in Aus so it's kind of been sitting dormant for a few years, and I'm now starting to look at how I can better make the most of my...

    QFF Status - Near enough?

    A quick question out there, as I’m relatively new to QFF status (last business I worked for used VA more often so my experience is more with Velocity). Been quickly rising through the status points this last year, but realised I’m going to be annoyingly close to the magic 700 to get to Gold...

    Oz Based Tier Point Run

    Hi everyone, looking to hear experiences for TPRs for those based in Aus. I've heard that PER-BKK often has sales. Does anyone know how cheap they get and are there any other fares available? Ex-EU has some good deals I've seen, DUB-LAX or BUD-Hawaii. I would like to see whether its cost...

    Was J class Syd-Lax-Jfk (ticketed AA, QFF). Connection in LA missed due to QF late Syd departure, and QF rebooked us on Delta for Lax-Jfk leg. Was told by QF ground staff at LAX that would still get QFF status credits for LAX-JFK leg as was QF fault and they rebooked me. Received SC and FF...

    Points Club Plus Status Credit Rollover: simpleton question

    Hi all. Here's me, still learning. I just went up to Points Club Plus. I currently have 295 Status Credits and will retain silver for 2023 (which some will know was something pathetic that I was nevertheless aiming for and excited to attain). So, with PC+ there's a lot said about rolling...

    Status credit balance gone weird

    Has anyone noticed their accumulated status credit balance has just dropped? The number of status credits required to retain status has dropped but lifetime is still correct. Very weird.
