Yes - historically bookings through Amex Travel (using the travel credit) have attracted DSC.The offer T&Cs specify that bookings can be made through a travel agent. I assume this means that bookings made using my annual Amex flight travel credit will attract the DSCs?
I only got the email a few minutes ago, several hours after OP started the thread. It's probably just the software churning its way slowly through the mailing list.Its selected, the email recipients, that is, isn't it?
I didn't get any emails
I do not understand why QF restricted this just to the AU-NZ sectors I am not sure their systems are smart enough to no include any domestic connections but who knows. I already have some NZ bookings and for a few extra SCs and some extra points it is not worth the fees to cancel and rebook. I get it may be worth it if you were chasing SG, WP or close to LTG, in my case the gap to retain P1 through to 23 is just to big at the moment and LTP that gap is even larger. I will pass on this one.
I remember not so long ago (well pre-COVID so a lifetime) the new normal was that general DSC offers had gone the way of the dodo.
The new new normal looks like DSCs as the new status support. A general DSC offer, and then another six weeks later; a record frequency I think. Both targeted by routes (domestic then trans tasman). In this environment further SC handouts, speculated about elsewhere, seem pretty unlikely.
Well I'll register and have a look at flights, but I might also keep an eye out for the next DSC offer (end of June?)
I may not have been clear enough and have not read all the T's & C's just saw @Kiwi_Flyer comment post 2 that the domestic don't count. It would have just been easier if the whole offer was just a simple AU-NZ.As someone who has to connect to get to NZ using QF say ADL-SYD-AKL why specifically exclude ADL-SYD. It was not my intention to suggest it should be an open DSC offering to/from anywhere. I am aware there has been other offers that were location specific, from memory there were reports of targeted DSC offers based on what seem to be search but that was a couple of years ago.The point of the promo is to stimulate demand on trans-tasman flying. Clearly the VFR travel has all been booked and imediate travel has happened - all that pent up "Must visit grandparents/kids etc have not seen for over a year" demand
I think so, but note that the e.g. 600 SC handed out to every WP due to the pandemic to help keep status, does not count towards the rollover. So you could be sitting on 610 SCs (due to taking only one short domestic flight) as a WP and only have 10SC that will rollover.
Just looked and it's not great a service every 2 hours from 6am until midnight. Unless it lines up perfectly with your arrival you could be waiting around a while. It might put a bit of pressure on the airtrain with lower fares but if you're arriving during the middle of the day it's still possible to get to the city for ~$3 by catching two busses and a train.((((OT) but just saw that Skybus will start serving BNE and cheaper than Con-x-ion, bigger buses too, so good for people from NZ coming into BNE and not wanting to be gouged by the Airtrain.)))*
