    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...

    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 ;)...

    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...

    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...

    Answered How to access WP Status benefits but not accrue points or status credits.

    Hi all My employer has a policy that does not permit me to accrue status credits or points for flights. Is there a way to get my WP number on the booking so I get priority seat selection and lounge access but not actually accrue any points or status credits in the process? Cheers m

    How much would you pay for status credits?

    This is just a hypothetical question, but how much would you be prepared to pay to buy status credits from Qantas outright? I recently received an offer from United (who I have gold status with) offering to sell me PQMs for USD150 per thousand (up to a maximum of 15,000 PQMs). To put that into...
