No offence meant Roy, I understand the civil servants dont get them, but the politicians certainly dont miss out on this gravy train. Majority of them know exactly how to get them. Trying to get them to use the points on parlimentary business instead of private use is the problem. The major papers seem to do a story every year on how much the pollies spend on their travel and how many have used their points for work travel, and there isn't many.roy G biv said:...or in another word........nope. seems to depend on which system you're in - with the feds or one of the states.
i've never received any FFPs for govvy travel - not even by accident....though i'm not altogether unhappy with that, as i've noted that it's more trouble than it's worth when it happens.
as mentioned elsewhere in this thread, we do get SCs, though with red-e-deals 9 times out of 10, it's pretty slow going.
being the tall chap that i am however, as long as i'm on the flying rat and not rammed in the jetstar maternity-ward stirrups, i'm not making a fuss.
absolutely no offence taken reggie. indeed, my apologies are due to you if my reply looked a little snippy. it certainly wasn't meant to be.Reggie said:No offence meant Roy....
Personal QFF guvverment points earned on guvverment travel can only be expended on ........ next question.I wonder if they can reverse the spent points?
I wonder if AA will provide AAdvantage miles for such fares?dikko said:As far as Commonwealth Govt public servants are concerned, it is on a department-by-department basis. For my Department, all travel is booked through the specified travel agent (QBT), and no FF points are accrued (however SCs are).
Most likely to be booked on an AA/QF flight under the QF number (which covers most of the likely destinations in the US), so I suppose wouldn't earn miles? I did however get miles credited when flying SQ, but perhaps best not to say that in public!NM said:I wonder if AA will provide AAdvantage miles for such fares?
I thought that QF did not allow multiple FF accountsNgariman said:Hi all,
I work for the SA State Government, We all get points for our Business travel. but we must have a separate QFF Account to our personal one and all points earned can only be used to redeem flights for work/business.
