Do you mean this option? "Use points - Classic Flight Rewards only"Am I right in recalling that there used to be an option at initial search to select Classic Awards only, not just "Use points". Cos if I'm right I don't have that option at the search screen anymore.
But then they had this in their back pocket for several weeks or months and were just waiting for an opportune moment to publish this story, right? We may so lucky to be granted a begrudging credit somewhere in the article fine print.Waiting for ET to write an article about this magical new trick for QF F award bookings that its team has found.
Yes, the F options are there. I didn‘t see much in the way of J however.Did anyone actually find any flights with Business/First seats available doing this 'hack'?
I had a bit of a search this morning choosing different regional ports and flying out of both SYD and BNE but no luck....
But do you know what... I found availability, for ok dates next year (Feb 24 and plenty of days before and after if anyone is interested, ex Bendigo)
It seems that the availability has been pulled by Qantas. I was searching earlier this afternoon and could get 2 F tickets in both directions on almost every date in February and March from Syd and Melb. Now there is nothing.I can't seem to find anything from any regional destination - including the Bendigo dates you have posted.
Maybe it's because I am a lowly Bronze but I've searched over multiple months this year and next year up until March and nothing above Premium economy seems available to LAX.

Fabulous hack. Tried it straight after reading and sure enough ... Does it ONLY apply to flights to LA?Bizarre Trick to Get Qantas First Class Awards is an article written by AFF editorial staff:
Using a bizarre trick, you can get access to Qantas First Class Classic Reward seats to Los Angeles that aren't otherwise available online.www.australianfrequentflyer.com.au

Lol, yes.It would appear that the hack is no longer working as qantas has now stopped making any first class award seats available (ie, pulled the inventory)."Update: Since this article was published, Qantas appears to have pulled all First Class award inventory."
So does this mean this "hack" will no longer work at all?
I wish people would talk in normal English language.
