It seems I have to earn 195 status credits before mid-year to maintain QF Gold status.

Sounds like an awful lot of flights, or a big one; neither planned at moment.

Any advice from more world weary members on any smart options?

If you're really quick, Qantas are offering double status credits on domestic flights until Sunday 15 April. I'm flying Perth to Sydney and stopping over in Melbourne just to earn an extra 10 credits which will become 20. So if you wanted to do a PER-MEL-SYD or vice versa, you could earn 100 SCs.

AFAIK, the double status credits promotion was only for selected Frequent Flyer members and not for the general population.

Pure coincidence, of course, but my wife received this offer (currently QP PS with about 100SC's to get to gold) around 1 week after we swapped all her ATW segments to be credited to AA.

She's enrolled for the platinum lack-of-challenge (lots of criss-crossing the US on AA to maximise earning) and will pick up QF partner gold as well. She is still somewhat bemused by the intinerary - not quite sharing my flying enthusiasm.:D

Anyway ... I appreciated the delicious irony in the timing of the e-mail!

G'day N Grainger,

Welcome to AFF.

It really depends upon how inportant to you SG is ... if you are flying a lot then it may be worthwhile. If not planning to fly much it is worth a lot less.

Depending on where you live, those additional SC's can be attained in several ways.

In my opinion i think that if your close to Silver ot Platinum then i would not be so worried to make it but Gold its worth while unless you have Qantas Club access already you get lounge access.

I had over 300 point to gold (All my travel us usually discount economy) a month or 2 ago and i thought i would never make it, i have already got down to 150 with unplanned travel, and i am sure i will make the rest by mid year so maybe its worth waiting until closer to the time as well unless you want to plan a holiday or similar before you consider a pure status run.

Personally I would say that it is not worth paying too much to retain Gold unless you do a fair bit of travel on OW airlines other than AA,BA and QF. If travel is primarily domestic or international on AA,QF,BA then I would suggest paying the $350ish and purchasing a Qantas Club renewal ( should not need to pay the joining fee since by being QFF Gold you are already a member )
