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

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.
It’s still better to under-promise and over-deliver than the opposite. Time to stop spruiking priority baggage as a benefit.

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.
When pressed, a Qantas insider read out the definition of Lifetime Platinum from the Qantas website.

What utopian planet did you live on where this happened? 😆

Just search AFF for all the threads complaining about it.

Drifting OT but politics became a little more interesting as a profession.

Unless you're relocating countries what true FF actually checks bags. I haven't in years...c'mon people adopt the 'up in the air' approach.

To bring back on point I'm still miles from LTP...or I should say 10s of thousands....

Leather travel wallet and luggage tag, if they made this public then everyone would be aiming for LTP!

Ironic gifts given the amount of travel required to get to LTP would likely mean that the person probably has a travel wallet and many many luggage tags - unless they're some special LTP ones (which I highly doubt)!

Maybe a little harsh. For me it's not about the current day value of the gift it's more about having a small piece of QF history. If I recall there are 100+ LTP's currently (not sure how accurate this is) with the numbers edging up slowly over time - continuing to make this gift even more unique.

Like many on this forum my family and I spent a bunch of time on VH-OJN flying to/from various parts of the world... The true value of LTP will be realised over time when I don't have the need to travel as regularly for business and can enjoy QF Platinum as someone who just travels every so often...

Congrats.

Can I ask what is the long silver item in your photo?

Looks like a tie pin to me.

If you take a look at the last thumbnail showing the reverse side of the LTP leather carry-on luggage bag tag. You will see a round metal shape with two holes around 3mm apart. The metal ‘pin tie’ object is a purpose built "screw driver" that is used to lock the two ends of the leather carry-on luggage bag tag.
