Just to confirm, at one time, on here, it was mentioned a while back, (I think), that pax are put on NZ flights, rather than QF ones, if and when LAN flights are cancelled, as it seems to be/is, today 15/10/14. I am not on this one, but will be on one next year.
In a way is good, as more NZ flights fly from AKL to SYD, but bad in the sense the loss of QF FF points and SCs.
I am a QF FF member, and not in LANs FF program.

Are you booked on QF code? You can always call up QF and ask for Original Routing Credit after.

That may have been me.. A year or two ago my lan flight to akl was cancelled all lan pax were directed to lan desk to get NZ boarding passes. All qf codeshare pax directed to qf counters to get qf flights.
When I asked if I could be put on QF they said no. In the end of I remember correctly I refused the flight and got them to rebook me on lan j the next weekend.

I made the booking at LANs website.
Heh, ok, wait and see.
I will have to go Emineres suggested way, and claim ORU, as I cant spend more time in AKL. Would love to, but due to work, have to get back to Australia.
Thanks both.
