Hi All,

I was thinking that maybe we could have a sticky thread with all the abrev's and explanations of codes that are commonly used within the forum including all the fare codes. Such as what is RTW, OW, J fares etc etc

I've got no idea what most of them are so If the well educated persons in this field could enlighten us all, I believe that this would be of great assistance to all that visit the forum that aren't aware of them.

Great ID. I was going WTF at a post which should have had me ROTFLMAO when I logged on here. I had a GHLAM and thought LOL.

Not too mention the various unofficial abbreviations(generally Qantas specific) you may see on this (and other) boards:

QP = Qantas Pub, more commonly known as Qantas Club (or QC)
QC = Quickcheck, not to be confused with QP (although sometimes it is)
SC = Status Credit
UC = Upgrade Credit
N class = usually lowest domestic fare, commonly known as "red-e-deal"
MR = Mileage Run, where individuals pay money to fly around with sole purpose of accumulating SC's and sometimes miles as well, or route their SYD to MEL fare via Kalamazoo and Timbuktu to pick up extra SC's.

QF, DJ, JQ, NZ are all airline designators (Qantas, Virgin Blue, Jetstar, Air NZ), with a comprehensive listing at Amadeus.

Also (although someone else can probably shed some light on what the actual acronyms mean), the following refer to Qantas status:
WP = Platinum
SG = Gold
PS = Silver
NB = Bronze

This originated on another board.

We basically had a get together in BrisVegas, were several of us flew in from around the country and got ourselves shattered at the BNE Qantas Pub. During the meeting, it came about that us Gold's are Scum (hence the SG acronym). Us SG's then decided that Platinums were Wankers (hence the WP acronym).

We then set about finding something to call the Silvers and Bronzes, namely Plebian Silver (PS) and Nuthin Bronze (NB).

These abbreviations have become quite legendary on that other board. It adds to the quirky nature of the QF forum.

I think this might get advanced to a sticky...excellent work BlacKnox.

thadocta, thanks for the memories. Shattered :oops: - good word actually (when I remember when leaving looking at the meeting room table groaning with the weight of the numerous empty glasses that once contained HP's). A number of us original members of that BNE QP meet are posters here...but we're all on FT. What a night to be born again :D :wink:

For those that want to be reminded - here are the link to the explanation of our abbreviations (courtesy of thadocta) (they are shown on Post #1 on the Ultimate Qantas Guide).


Oh, BTW, YGPM :wink:

Various types of RTW tickets.

D stands for Business class. Tickets are booked in the "D" fare bucket.
ONE standards for the OneWorld Exporer
The number afterwards stands for the number of continents allowed.
DCIR22 is a Business class Circle Pacific ticket with a max of 22000 nmiles (Fly to america only in a circular fashion).

This link to Flyertalk might help with a better description of what they all are...

Sure,

These are all discounted Business Class ('D') fares with Oneworld airlines.

The DONEx are around the world fares, covering x number of continents. A DONE3 is a three continent ticket (eg Asia, Europe, North America). As we have to transit through Asia, tickets from Australia are a minimum of DONE4.

The DCIR fare is a 'Circle Pacific' fare, with the number denoting the maximum mileage available under the fare (ie, a DCIRC22 has a maximum mileage for all flights of 22,000 miles).

I started to think discount business class may have been part of it.. I don't think I'll ever be able to justify paying business class fares for personal travel.. At least until I win lotto!

Wouldn't it be tidier to only include airline travel specific abbreviations rather than adding all generally used txt and internet abbreviations
