Qantas have just announced they are replacing their entire frequent flyer program with a new simpler, lower to administer program. From now on frequent flyers will no longer collect points, just breadsticks. New redemption levels will include a Melb-Syd return for just 60 breadsticks (or 20 packets). Qantas spokesperson Justin Joking said "the new scheme will substantially reduce adminstration costs of our frequent flyer program, and at the same time reduce catering costs be reducing the number of breadsticks actually consumed by our passengers". Customers will only be able to redeem unopened packets, and Qantas is examining means to incorporate unopened Salsa, Houmoss and Guacomole dips into the new program as well.
