Hi all

I’m travelling with my new employer that doesn’t permit staff to earn FF points.

Is it possible to access WP seat selection options using FQTS on Qantas and Virgin but leaving the point earning field blank?

I.e. I want WP benefits but not earn points and SCs?

I tried calling but you can imagine how that went 🤣. Hoping there may be an option via the travel agent.

thanks

If your employer has a corporate TA they will be used what can~cannot be done.
Similarly likely will be 1 or more co-workers who play the ff miles/points and status game.
With some employers can earn SC but not ff miles/points.

If your employer's TA does the bookings they know what fare codes to book. In fact their contract with your employer will specify what benefits pax receive.
 
Is your employer government? Is so, adding your FF number as normal will not result in you getting points (but you will get SC).

Which government does this? The one I work for simply asks us to not be swayed by points and to consider redeeming points for a work flight if we’ve earned points from previous work flights. It’s pretty vague.

The Federal Government has contracts with QF and VA that mean fares are non-points earning.
 
The Frequent Flyer Concierge team takes the hard work out of finding reward seat availability. Using their expert knowledge and specialised tools, they'll help you book a great trip that maximises the value for your points.

Nope. Hence the thread.

Anyway. Seems to be impossible based on airline call centre, corp TA and another thread where I read that QF doesn’t use FQTS (can’t tell with VA but probably less likely).

I will travel like a plebb to avoid accidentally earning points. :p
 
This is a very odd thread. It seems as if adding the ff number would award points, as opposed to the fare not earning points, and that for some reason that isn’t allowed by the company?

If the fare is just non points earning surely it’s simple.
And if the fare does earn points, surely it doesn’t matter whether the company knows or not??
