Not sure if this is already covered elsewhere...the wife is travelling from Sydney to Christchurch on Jetstar in economy (QF309) on a QFF award ticket.

She is Qantas Club/Silver FF, what are her check-in options ? can she check-in at a QF business counter, a Jetstar StarClass counter, or with the rabble? Anything to help smooth the way into a delightful Jetstar flight!

Unfortunately it's with the Rabble!

Check in opens 3 hours before the flight; I suggest she is already queued when check-in opens and requests an exit row.

Thanks for that .. being a morning flight that one will be tough after allowing for the usual morning make-up time...

That is what the ride to the airport is for. And if not finished, she should still have about 2.5 hours in the Qantas Club to finish the process :p .

I believe it's departing at 8:50?

Being a QP member, access to the Upstairs J lounge will be available; they have some very nice large shower room facilities there. Checking in at 5:50 would enable leisurely completion of "the usual morning make-up time" processes.

I presume a seat has been preallocated for her? If not, you can call Jetstar on 131 538 (+ 61 3 8341 4901) and make a request.

Cheers, we'll give Jetstar a call and see what they can do. At least she might get a free snack on a QF award....

Sure it's not QF409 departing at 8:50?
Isn't QF409 the 7am departure from SYD to MEL that only operates on Wednesdays?

Yes; I was looking at JQ409 shown on the QF website; the 8:50 code share is QF309 ... that lysdexia thing must be spreading ... :shock:

All went well, received a call this morning from the Mrs at the airport, only one person in the queue on arrival, very pleasant check-in agent, and changed the allocated mid-plane aisle seat to the first row aisle seat in celebration of 'International Womens Day'.:D

This is the Australian Frequent Flyer forum, and Eastern Europe is an International destination by just about any definition of the term for most members here :D .
