was looking for qantas frequent flyer seats to Fiji & was surprised to find some on January 5, on FJ brand new A359, (much better than QF 737)which is surprising. Guess having QF back on route & economy ..........
I too, concur that OneWorld Connect is pretty much a joke.
I am a QR WP / OWE and recently booked and travelled from SYD/NAD return in J on revenue tickets. Both flights were booked with QF but SYD/NAD was operated by FJ and the return was operated by QF.
I was denied access to the QF F lounge and directed to the J lounge (as a J pax on a QF ticket I could access there, but if I was travelling in Y then I would have had no lounge access at all).
I have not received any status credits or FF mileage as this flight was marketed by QF, but operated by FJ.
On return flight, I got access to the lounge in NAD (again, travelling J, but if I was travelling Y my OWE would have provided access) and did receive full status credits and FF mileage.
It’s frustrating - if I booked FJ then I would expect some issues, but as I booked, paid and was travelling on QF flight #’s I expected OW benefits where they were available.
If full benefits aren’t available, there should be a notice when you book! For example - I was booking an Iberia flight (with IB #) but there was a notice that told me it was operated by Vueling and no OW benefits applied. So I made alternate arrangements.
QF and FJ are taking the Mickey here ... with this OW Connect malarkey
I thought you only earn miles and status credits when crediting to a sponsors program, which is CX, BA and QF, and maybe AA? So beast_man shouldn't not accrue any miles to QR program - which requires "Earn Qmiles and Qpoints when flying on Qantas marketed* flights that are operated** by any oneworld carrier and oneworld affiliates " (FJ is a oneworld connect carrier). Basically the only benefits when you have status with non-sponsor oneworld carriers is priority checkin and priority boarding.
