Hello,
In my upcoming trip, SYD-JNB-LHR-BSL-LHR-BOM-SYD I will earn about 620 SC enough to retain Gold for next year but there would be only be 2 QF flights....I understand that you need a min of QF flights ....will this be a problem or will QF still retain my status.

Qantas are now forcing the 4 sectors of 'eligible' flights as part of their FF scheme.

So if that's your only Qantas sectors, don't expect to get renewed (but you could be lucky).

SYD-CBR/MEL/BNE-SYD on QF is generally less expensive than an annual QP membership.

Personally, I would not leave it to chance; I'd do the extra 2 flights.

can you get the LHR-BSL flights issued with a QF code ( if it's on BA)?

Don't think codesharing would help - the qualifying sectors must be on QF metal.

No idea, but I thought it was worth asking.

I though QF codeshare flights were also counted towards the 4 segments?

yes, QF codeshares do count towards the 4 flight requirement. However, I am not aware of any QF codeshares to BSL so its not going to help in this case.

No they don't, they just have to have a QF code.

More than that, they must be an "eligible flight", i.e. earning FF points/SC's.

I thought that an award flight on QF metal with QF nunmber counted towards the 4 sectors.

Award flights DO NOT count.

Here's the activity from a trip I took late last year:
Code:
                                                                 †     ~
29 DEC 06    QF 458 BUSINESS 29DEC06    439    110    439   1,250    40
                    MELBOURNE/SYDNEY

30 DEC 06    QF 497 ECONOMY 30DEC06     -      -      -         0     0
                    SYDNEY/MELBOURNE

Bowing and tipping his hat as he retreats backwards after checking his own statement, and indeed finds that serfty is correct.:oops:

Sorry for any confusion.
