How long until you get to LTP? (Or are you already there ^_~)

in all seriousness, has anyone made any major dents towards their LTSC in the past year? do you guys reckon there's a chance QFF will review the LTP quals in view of the forecast travel patterns within the next 5 years ...
Yes actually. But my target is LTG.

I notched up >1,300SC last year and didn’t set foot on a plane.

It was my third highest earning year ever.

With handouts like that, I can’t see the 75k SC target being reviewed.

Things will certain slow up in the LPT entrants. At least another year of restricted OS travel will slow up any aspirants and push the expectations out 5 years. I still don't think Qantas will review the the limit but they may give out special invites to those in the 55-75k band.

fortunate enough to have received LTP from Day 1. Now have 106,389 Lifetime SC’s with little or no flying since Q1 2020. Similar to previous commentary my guess is that QF will continue to attract and retain frequent flyers by reviewing and implementing status keeper promotions until both domestic and international flying are up and running to 80%+ pre-covid levels.

I don’t anticipate they will soften the 75,000 Lifetime SC LTP level anytime soon.

I imagine you fly so much that Qantas gives you pretty good treatment anyway. I expect the LTP benefits will only really kick in after you finish up working and only fly every now and then?

I don't anticipate QF service levels will differentiate between Platinums and Lifetime Platinums. Having the benefit of QF Platinum / Oneworld Emerald for as long as I'm able to get on a plane should be good so long as QF maintain the current Platinum service levels.

And is SEN Penny Wong the first politician to achieve LTP?


When pressed, a Qantas insider confirmed the privilege was only bestowed on frequent flyers once they rack up 75,000 status credits – which are a different measure to frequent flyer points and simply denote how much you fly.

And the South Australian Senator Wong sure knows how to fly.

I figure that within Australia at least, Tall Poppy Syndrome guarantees priority bags to be taken off last. If they are mistakenly taken off first, the baggage handlers will be sure to shunt those aside and deliver them to the belt after a suitable delay. While in general the staff doing this aren't Qantas, if I were a Qantas (or DNATA etc) middle manager and needed to improve my relationship with the boys on the ground, it's not something I would push them hard about.

Im not sure id agree with that.

Previously when QF did their ground services in house, bags would be delivered promptly and nearly always with priority bags first.

Now its been outsourced, bags take forever and with little to no priority sorting, not due to tall poppy syndrome but simply because the labour resources has been cut back to the absolute minimal so there is no time for any sorting and the ground stuff are constantly under staffed and rushing from one job to the next. The issue lies at the top - not at the bottom.
