    Odd(?) QF earn posting

    Does this make sense to anyone? Flew JL35 (booked as QF4026) 4NOV. With the normal posting from JAL operated flights, it should have posted on Nov 5 (JAL does weekly batches to QFF posting on Tuesdays) or Nov 12 if it missed the batch. Hadn't posted by Nov 16, so sent in a claim. Around 2...

    Rate of earn for Business Saver fare

    I thought the answer for this would be pretty easy to find through a web search, but I'm having no luck! For a city pair, say SYD to LAX, the Virgin / Velocity website only shows the distance in miles, and not points earned. There doesn't appear to be any info on their entire site which...

    Flying CX ex-ADL to maximise SC earn

    I see that the QF SC earn when flying CX in J ADL-HKG is 100 SC compared to 60 when flying say MEL-HKG. I assume due to QF not flying to HKG ex-ADL themselves. On a return J flight that is 100+ extra SC earn when taking into account the MEL-ADL positioning flight. Note, I'm actually looking...

    Using Complimentary Lounge Pass while earning points for BA

    I have a couple of flights coming up CBR-SYD-CFS and I have a complimentary lounge pass allocated for SYD. I would like to earn points on BAFF rather than QFF, is there a trick to doing this? I'm guessing I'd have to change the FF to BA, fly the first leg, change it back the Qantas, enter the...

    United launches MileagePlus shopping portal in Australia

    This was in my United MileagePlus newsletter for this month: Bizarrely, the link in the email doesn't actually work - it takes you to a website in Hebrew. I assume that's just an error with the newsletter and the shopping portal is actually happening.

    Earn & redeem KrisFlyer miles on Olympic Air

    This month's KrisFlyer newsletter states that it's now possible to earn and use KrisFlyer miles on Olympic Air flights (regional subsidiary of Aegean in Greece). I couldn't find much more info about this on the SQ website. Presume the award pricing is the same as the Star Alliance award chart.
