    Redeem qantas gift voucher for children?

    Hi Am I able to redeem a Qantas gift voucher for a family for 2adults 3 children? The gift voucher seems to only allow purchase for adults. If I buy a voucher for 5 people, it looks like I will have to pay adult fares for the children? I rang Qantas today and they said you should be able to...

    Lounge Pass and Children Question

    I've just noticed that my latest status credits have been given to me 3 days before my status review which is a shame because I won't be traveling much in the next 12 months so will no doubt slip down to Silver as I can't get enough credits to keep my gold (or go up to Platinum in time) So, I am...

    Accidentally converted CC points into KF miles in kids account

    Just had a look at my KrisFlyer miles and noticed that I’ve accidentally transferred my CC points to my kids Krisflyers account instead. Should I get them transferred across to my account is there a benefit of having the points (50k) in my kids account?

    Customer service assessment - from a child's perspective.

    Hi all, I am a fairly energetic supporter of Qantas, but I reject the "fan" tag as I also happily criticize them for things they suck at (like the obscene co-payments required to "redeem a free points ticket") I am more focussed on hard product than staff, as comfort and rest are more...

    Best bassinet seat in Y? (international flights)

    Has anyone worked out where would be the bassinet seat when flying with an infant? Obviously, the baby couldn't tell me which one she prefers. Using adult thinking, the ones right at the front would be nice and quiet (while ignoring all the WPs moaning), but the "noisy" part at the back is...

    Wife, infant and I are booked for LHR -> SIN -> BNE in June 2018. Called up trying to reserve 96D and 96F on the A380, but was advised we can only reserve one bassinet seat, so we can't sit side by side. Likewise, on the 757 tried to book 19D and 19F, but again advised we can only book one...
