Hello everyone,

I haved read many posts in various threads regarding when Qantas had the business companion fares, or when there was a period of earning double status credits.

Are these regular occurrences that tend to happen each year, and therefore I should wait for them, or does it only seem to happen when Qantas are struggling in the marketplace and need to pick up a bit more market share?

Also there are often Qantas Global sales (such as today) but the business fares rarely seem to be discounted. Am I kidding myself in trying to wait for a decently cheaper fare?

Thanks,
RG

2-for-1 and sales generally occur when business travel is low. Dec/Jan/Feb, sometimes also mid-year.

But with Virgin Australia ramping up their business class, if QF think they are a threat, expect to see domestic 2-for-1s and sales to occur at other times too.

Thanks Mal. Great point about new DJ business so I will keep my fingers crossed then.

I can tell you that in 2011 QF had 2 for 1 companion sale in J for international travel in:

March - I dont know date range but I booked Sept 11 travel
August for departures 1 Dec 11 to 31 Jan 12
December for departures 1 Feb 12 to 31 Mar 12 to London or Frankfurt

I dont think it is a regular thing but it might give you an idea of frequency and date range.

I too am waiting for the companion sale. It's not guaranteed they will do it though.

Does anyone know if SQ have companion sales in J?

I know they do offer companion fares through Amex Platinum/Centurion but not sure if they have public sales like that.
