I booked my "free" flight with my Amex platinum edge card yesterday. The phone agent from Amex told me I would earn status credits for these flights. I never have in the past. Is she correct?

Can you upgrade it? With either pts or $?

Can be upgraded with points - according to the agent yesterday, but I haven't tried to upgrade.

It might not be relevant, but I have a Qantas Ultimate AMEX, recently just use the free flight and it credit SC and Qantas Points to my account.
I have just checked the T&C and it clearly stated that no Qantas point or SC will be earned on the free flight.
I might have been lucky. (I am a SG, not sure whether it matters)

Thanks. I'll let you know what happens when I fly! It will be a nice surprise if SCs or points appear - but not very likely!

sorry I'm a dope!!:shock:
I paid $150 to UG and the UG didn't come thru on the return but got 15 SC both ways for 2 of us.
It may be because it was out of oz I got nothing on the domestic flts .
it seemed to be booked in a normal paid class.

I don't believe NZ destinations are a feature of the Edge card in any case. Limited domestic Oz routes only.

Definitely no earn on domestic flights.

Hi

to clarify

Flight that booked under flight redemption does not earn point nor status point

Yes, flight can be upgrade to business class using point or pay.

Platinum edge cannot fly to NZ only domestic

Platinum reserve you can fly to NZ and Bali
Hope answer all your question.
