Hi I have been lurking for a time but have decided to post as I am a Perthite. I and the rest of WA have been let down by QF as they have deserted us with their International flights.

I cannot upgrade a flight to London as QF does not fly any metal from Perth to O/S. Checked points to London economy and I have to fly back via Melbourne. I suppose if you wanted to book a business using points you would have to book about a year ahead.
I am still baseline with both DJ & QF even though I fly to both Sydney and Melbourne (as I have kids there) and an International every year. DJ have cheaper fares, indifferent staff (all except 2 in the last 4 years), no Gluten free meals or entertainment (I Pad screen went blank when I pressed the movie I wanted to watch; but I could see the map and view the movie choice an hour later) and QF has more expensive fares, more experienced and courteous staff and a full service. So we usually go DJ to the East coast and QF back. Not conducive to gaining points or status with either I know.

Any ideas anyone?

Welcome aboard!

I think you hit the nail on the head when you say that your pattern is not conducive to points or status. If you want either, pick one program and stick with it. :)
