Hair colour may be a good option for me. I could pass for anything from brown to grey or "distinguished blonde" depending on how long since I had a cut & colour .Dave Noble said:If QF decided to upgrade people based on hair colour, there would be not grounds to complain. Getting involuntary upgrades is not part of any specified benefit of status.
It used to be an 'unspecified' benefit similar to the availability of T class or no re-validation fees on award bookings for elites.Dave Noble said:... Getting involuntary upgrades is not part of any specified benefit of status. ...
I agree with that. I don't want the 'better availability of award seat' benefit of being a platinum eroded - I have been a beneficiary of this benefit quite a bit lately.munitalP said:I like the idea for a buy any seat program however, being the wanker platinum that I am, I would also like to see x number of seats on any flight dedicated to each class of FF up until say 30min's of departure. Fare class should not matter using this pecking order then at the 30 min mark, first in best dressed. That levels the playing field for all - xx_ seats for Platinum, XX for Gold and X for Silver.
If Qantas revamps the FF scheme, all I can hope is that premium customers don't get treated any worse than what they do now. A preimum customer is not always the F or J seated customer either.
