What's this called?
Is this the soft landing or what's termed comp?
My year starts Aug 14 and should end logically Jul 15, but I have been given it seems to Jul 16 to retain AF PS.
Ya, I know PS is of not much value to most.

On iPod in CHC with big paws.
Title should read retain, not as shown above.

You have silver for the remainder of your current year plus the following year. So if you get silver early on in your year, you have the benefits for nearly two years.

And all the more time to get to SG ;).

Am already paying for QP.
But will renew when times up.
25% extra points for QF FF flights is nice though.
Have some VA bookings as well. PS with them now.
No SG, just Loyalty Bonus, sceptical on that, but a definite maybe.

Maybe not with the Jul changes.

Its never a bad thing to dream big! I recall when I first made QF SG I thought I would only make it there, then somehow I got WP and later made it to WP + Partner Gold! :)

Resuscitate sounds better.

You can be like some of those Youtube videos, where the cat/s keeps egging on the dog/s, and the dog bites the cat, but does not draw blood, the cat does not learn, and keeps on egging on the dog.
You can keep pleading for QF to bring back J/M(ASA's) but if its not profitable, its not going to happen.
I can plea till I get blue in the face for QF to bring back ADL to SIN direct flights, but do you think it will happen? Nak ahhh!
80+40=120 plus 360, 480, that will put me 20 out from Loyalty Bonus Tier1.
Ah, if only I can pull money out of thin air, you lot might be just right, as its not all that far from 500 SC to 700 SC. One return F flight on EK with a QF flight number will do the trick, but money is the problem. Or lack there of more of the green coloured notes, that is.
Ok, the odyssey of coming back into SYDi begins soon. Wish me luck I dont get pinged.

Why would QF bring back SC earning Any Seat awards?

They are deemed to be unprofitable.

Any Seat Awards still exist and still earn SCs and points, and are still upgradeable (some classes excluded).

What you can't do any more is book an Any Seat Award at the Classic level (often referred to as a "marginal" Any Seat Award).

They have brought them back! Current promotion allows you to book classic awards and get SCs. But... wait for it... without the additional co-pay for mASAs.

So if they were 'losing money' under the old system, they must be losing more now. Go figure.

I don't see people rushing to do the HBA Express or ADL-BNE-TSV with a nested TSV-BNE-DRW.

I wonder why?

Only a promo and Y SCs. Big difference to before.
