Hi everyone. I am a newbie to this forum although I have been watching it for quite a while. I've racked up 110,000 QF points (Gold) :D while travelling in Oz and am intending on travelling to Europe in Aug/Sept 07- probably to Amsterdam and London, maybe with a side trip to Spain if I can manage it on FF points- I earn about 5000 per month so I should have around 130,000 pts by September this year. I will travelling with a friend who has no airline affiliation and I have few questions: Is it best to book my flights for the whole trip myself on-line and then get my agent to book my friends flights so that each legs are the same? Is it it problem to merge our bookings so that we are able to be seated together? Or can my agent do the whole lot?
Cheers

Once both bookings have been completed, all you have to do is
ring Qantas and they will seat you together. As your Gold, they will
go off your seating preference.

Welcome to AFF, dish62. :D

I did exactly this a few months back. I used points to book award tickets for my daughter, and when the itinerary was complete, sent it to the travel agent and ask her to buy me tickets on the same flights and then link the bookings so that we were seated together.
