1 million extra award seats, MY AR5E.
Just spent the last half hour looking for Joyce's promised changes
Not ONE J flight to London in the next 12 months. Nothing.
Oh, there's the same old MU and Emirates availability here and there but they've gone UP by 20,000 points and no reduction in taxes.
Why am I surprised??

Is is not yet 8am on the eastern seaboard and I noticed that the redemption points rate has already increased.

I hope you get what you want! But, as a FF with QF, I hope they continue to reserve the bulk of their premium award seats for status flyers.

Did they promise extra business awards?
“We know the majority of our members want to use their points to take a dream trip overseas, so we are adding more reward seats including First, Business and Premium Economy, to places like London, Los Angeles, Tokyo and Singapore as well as slashing carrier charges."

Looking at end of January HKG-SYD route ..... No extra seats, not even Economy ........ I am a QF Gold so I should be able to see more inventories.

However I can only see all the additional QFF costs for J and F ..... at off peak times.

Yeah right million extra seats. Great marketing spin.

I was looking at booking JL flights for 2 PAX the other day however the dates were not far enough forward so I was going to book and then change. I called QF and asked if I booked prior to the 18/9 and then changed post 18/9 would I have to pay the new rates plus change fees. The answer was "we have not been told and I am not sure".

I didn't book and now have to pay the higher points rate, however the booking I looked at yesterday the QF tax is about $125 per pax cheaper and if I factor in the points to change 5000 per pax I think I am only slightly worse off.
