Hi all,

Does anyone have experience of losing your status whilst away on a trip ?

I'm travelling to the US next month (August), returning September 11. My Gold status ends August 31 & I will not be earning the 410 status credits required to maintain gold before that date.

Wondering if there is any chance that increased luggage allowance & lounge access would apply to the trip home from LAX. I'm guessing the answer is no - but would love it to be yes!

I have been Gold since 2007 & have accumnulated enough staus credit to be lifetime silver.

Thanks for your feedback

If you've been Gold since 2007, you very well might be comped for another year.

Correct me if I am missing something here, but isn't SG and PS allowance the same coming home from the US as it is?

Thanks for the replies - baggage allowance remains the same.

I've called Qantas - It turns out I have a couple of months remaining of Club membership that will "re-activate" once Gold is lost. They've told me I can get a temporary card for this next time I'm at the airport that will allow me access to the lounge at LAX.

So a good result.

It would be interesting to see what is printed on your boarding pass for the return flight.

There is sufficient evidence to suggest a new higher status is not always reflected on boarding pass unless the QFF number is removed and added back again to booking.

I didn't think QP members have access to the LAX lounge as its not a Qantas lounge?

what flight are you on back to Oz? I'm on JFK-LAX-SYD on Sept 10, though it sounds like that is one day too early for you.

Of course, there has been a recent report of the newly reopened TBIT lounge being closed to QP members, even travelling on QF - possibly due to overcrowding.
