Hi,

I have just started flying a lot recently for work. To be honest, prior to this I never really thought about Frequent Flyer Programs. Now I am finding that it's something it really pays to know about! So, here I am.

To give an idea - in the last 4 months I have flown SYD-HKG-NRT-KHH-NRT-DOH-JNB-DOH-NRT-HKG-SYD-MEL-SYD-HKG-KHH and am about to go back to Sydney and then a number of planned domestics. I have been flying only One World.

Whilst this looks like A LOT (at least it feels like it!) it's all discount tickets on whatever One World airline was cheapest and suited schedule etc etc. So I am only just verging on Silver with Qantas. Sad, but true.

Well - hope things improve from here!

Thanks!

Welcome Benzo. Stick around and I'm sure with that amount of flying you'll be able to pick up some tips to make Gold or Platinum in no time. :)

Yeah - thanks. I figure I need some advice to maximize my earn and so forth. Plus I a sure the general experience of flying can be much improved with some basic tips - probably most FFs take for granted but to which I am clueless....

Yeah I really hope so. I am just verging on Silver but my anniversary is on 31 May. So not sure if I can make Gold by then (sigh). We'll see.
