    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.

    Serfty's idea sounds like the best bet!

    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:

    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.
