    Where does everyone book their tickets?

    I normally use qantas.com.au.

    I wonder if it is actually worth going through a travel agent?

    Business class from PER to MEL is $1406 one way.
    Flexi saver is $667 one way.

    Qantas prices seem to include the credit card surcharge, and I can use my AMEX card with 2.5 pts per dollar for Qantas.

    Does anyone know how to get access to corporate fares with Qantas?

    To get corporate rates, you usually need to be an employee or contractor of a company that has negotiated a discount with QF (ie generally for decent volume). You'll either have the code or book travel through your corporate TA who has the code.

    Most such agreements strictly prohibit others from using the code.

    The only way to access our corporate rates is to book through our corporate travel centre. The only way to do that on-line is through our corporate travel centre Intranet site. No public access web bookings can access our corporate rates. I suspect that is the same with most (if not all) organisations with negotiated corporate rates.

    Where the tickets are return or M class or under (Super Saver or red e-Deals) , I use the QF website.

    Where the tickets are multi-sectors or in K class or above (Flexi Saver or Fully Flexible), I use AA Reservations in either USA or UK to book the flights, then get AA Reservations in SYD to issue the e-ticket and pay. Saves some of the fuel surcharges.

    Why do you bother getting AA in SYD issuing e-ticket? You can get e-ticket online (cc billing address as normal except country).

    Apologies Kiwi Flyer, meant to type International e-tickets issued by AA SYD, not domestic. Not that I am expecting too many in the foreseeable future :roll: ...

    The obvious answer I should have thought of.
