    Loyalty bonus prompt delay

    Is it just me, or... I returned from DUB last Tuesday via the LHR-PER flight (hip hip hooray for the op-up to J) and clocked the 500SC YTD QF marketed. It's been a week and I'm yet to see the prompt in my account re the loyalty bonus. What I can see is the statement saying what my LB YTD SCs...

    Expected widespread delays/cancellations

    Sometimes there are delays across airlines due to factors such as the weather. I thought I'd start a new thread to centralise discussions of these events, rather than having them across multiple airline threads. To kick it off, the strong cold front that moved through WA today will make its...

    Will Qantas pay EU261 compo for QF2 LHR 4hr+ delays?

    Hi all, I was on the July 7th QF2 flight which returned back to Heathrow after 5hrs into its LHR-SING flight with a tech fault. Qantas aircraft then didn't depart LHR for another 12hrs+. I therefore should be eligible for EU261 compensation of Euros 600.... Am I right? I have already emailed...

    Five years of Airline Delays/ Cancellations thread

    The QF delays/ cancellations thread commenced five years ago. How time flies. The level of interest will never match the AFF 'Ask the pilot' thread as latter is wonderful specialist advice. Hats off to those who give us that information. You know who you are. Thank you to all contributors...

    Airport delays if not fault of airlines: who pays?

    The SYD passenger processing problems on the early morning of Friday 9 March due to security camera and other system failures were a classic case of the airport management, not JQ TT VA or ZL being responsible. In these circumstances, would the contracts between airlines and airports (with the...

    "SERVICE" : online, automatic compensation for flight delays / cancellation

    Hey everyone, I just got an email from expertflyer promoting some sort of compo-seeking business. Essentially I understand it to somehow go through your emails, find delayed/cancelled flights, and then seek compo for you, charging 30% of whatever "they" get back for you. Does anyone have...

    Seriously poor service tonight by the Sydney Lounge. Despite plane having arrived from Cairns at about 9pm the operating crew were delayed by about 30 mins. However at ~930pm Sydney lounge staff decided it was time to go home so (falsely) announced the flight was boarding and kicked us out of...

    Strange reasons for flight delays

    I had a rather unusual delay yesterday on QF52 from Singapore to Brisbane. The cause of the delay... tropical fish. We boarded on time but then sat at the gate for nearly an hour while the flight crew sorted out a "cargo issue". The captain later explained the full reason for the delay...

    Flight delayed out of JFK, will miss connection at LAX.

    Mrs AS is on QF12 JFK-LAX. Flight has been delayed 1 hour, meaning arrival to LAX will be 10pm. This means she will miss her connecting QF94 LAX-MEL (departing 10.10pm). What will QF do for her? I would hope a hotel at the least, given how late at night it is.
