Hi Matt, love the podcast and keep up the good work!
I'm new to collecting Qantas points, but would like to someday redeem them for a RTW or maybe a European holiday. Could you do a segment along the lines of "So l have half a million points Qantas points.. Now what?" I should also say that due to the flight restrictions due to COVID, l have basically NO status credit at all - how does this factor into planning and preparing for a RTW redemption?
PS. Please give a shout out to 'Scotty' who introduced me to the world of Qantas points and is an avid listener of the podcast!
Great interview Matt with the CEO of the QFM...I have been to Lre twice, the last time in Oct 2018 on the Qf drought relief charity flight. Learnt a few things from your interview today including the new light show and the new roof for the planes. Will need to revisit when the borders reopen to NSW residents.
Hi Matt, another great podcast, always hang out each fortnight for a listen.
As someone who’s currently of low/no (bronze) status with QFF, it becomes a long winded process to track down a reasonable reward seat for 2 pax around the intended date of travel. As another option, do you think that buying miles through those programs that are affiliated with Qantas worthwhile as an alternative? Exchange rate aside, the likes of Alaskan and AA have bonus mile promotions from time to time so does the availability through those programs make it easier to get a premium ticket on Qantas? If there is actually availability in the first place.
