Has anyone else noticed that despite the recent launch of Jetstar international flights with fanfare, the Qantas online booking engine doesnt seem to allow searches for award seats to Phuket, Ho Chi Minh, and some of the new destinations? I guess they have "forgotten" to add them...

Given the title of the thread, have you tried making a booking for one of those flights over the phone?

I see that it is your 1st post;

I have a recollection of reading somewhere that the requisite QF codeshares for these services had not been set up yet.

Welcome to AFF cbr-boy :)

QFF are slow to provide online services. You will need to ring to book an award on JQi.

Isn't there a special on awards to some of these places?

I didn't check to see if destinations were available online but it clearly states that "Connecting flights are not permitted for Award flight offers on Jetstar operated flights."

Offers cannot be used as part of multi-destination itineraries or combined with any other flights offers in the same booking.
