Just moved to Oz, living Sydney and FIFO month on/off Karattha interspersed with training in Europe and South America, been working offshore for over a decade but can't always chase the alliances I need to keep status.
Started with QFF in June last year and made Gold by September with QF/EK codeshares from Middle East. Planning to earn miles with the various credit cards and shopping at Woolworths...

Hello and welcome to AFF and Sydney YSSY . You'll find it a bit more relaxed here and the Rolex is not part of the uniform. ;)

Welcome.

If you're looking for the best tricks in getting the most QFF points out of the Woolworths group, have a look at this thread from time to time. It has some strategies regarding targeted offers from Everyday Rewards.
