    Jetstar cost of a reward seat?

    I could be completely incorrect but it seems the Jetstar website may be revealing the amount they get paid by Qantas for an award seat. I was just searching for some domestic Jetstar award flights and similar to any other redemptions when you reach the payment stage (but before you make...

    Booking JQ flight + baggage using QFF points

    Looking at using QFF points to purchase a JQ ticket. Only options through Q website are Starter and Max. If I purchase Starter fare can I then purchase baggage separately on Jetstar website? The Max bundle is overkill. Starter plus some baggage would be ok.

    Not sure if its a system glitch - flying JQ from Syd to OOL - booked via the QF website ... just had a notification that my flight had changed (unfortunately not to QF) ... appears that the new JQ flight is departing T3. I thought all JQ domestic had shifted across to T2 at SYD?
