No idea what time they landed. I can confirm though that I now have DSC for my flights taken so far under the promo.

Hopefully as in the past DSC will post much more quickly for those taking flights over the coming months.

My DSCs landed yesterday also, expired immediately, but they didn't roll over of course. Possibly another (dreaded) call to the call centre in the offing o_O. Fingers crossed the DSC rollover gets batched next.

Mine landed today too. My outbound leg was outside the allowable window but return was.

I was fearful they wouldn't post at all but thankfully return leg has posted.

bugger me, but the double points landed too.... after 5 weeks. over a month to post, my goodness, comical.
I actually gave up on them appearing, not used to this slow poor service.

Certainly wasn't going to call up about it & write off an arvo.

One of my flights was on the morning of the opening day of the flying window.

I have a few international trips to come which will get me back to WP (though sadly not in time to get F Lounge access for these trips).

Mine landed about 5pm continental European time yesterday.

Also got my serve of DSC from my recent flight. It was a reward as a Point Club Plus member, single booking EU->AU that I cancelled and rebooked to get the DSC.
Maybe it was already clarified, but there were some post indicating flight originating from ouside AU maybe would not qualify to DSC, i.e. post 55. It did for me which is nice!
The first offer was, indeed, only for flights originating in Australia. However it was quickly followed by a separate offer including international origins. Your timing was perfect. Congratulations on receiving the DSCs.

I only registered to the first offer. I personally doubt it was really meant to be limited to flight originated from Australia, the wording in the t&cs was not particularly strong to support that outcome in my opinion, contrary to the clear travel date, or qantas metal requirement. This is why I got into the trouble to cancel/ rebook the award (not in that order). Maybe at the end it was the dsc implementation that didnt support the ambigus t&cs..

After a bit of messing around online I was able to book a trip MEL-AKL-SYD-MEL in J which will net me 400SC for about $1200 (I could have done it for under $1000 but would have involved some rather uncivilised flight departure times). I frankly regard this as a bit of a scam but if QF are prepared to offer it why not take them up.
Have received a note from QF advising that the return routing has been changed to AKL-BNE-MEL; which now gives me 440SC for the same money. Sweet!!

I took flights under this offer on Saturday and they were posted last night. I can also confirm SCs earned on award tickets for Points Club members do count as that was my booking. 7+18 for one way Y and one way J ticket and a double serve of both so 50 for return SYD-MEL.

Hi guys, I'm fairly new to the whole realm of status/FF, but had a (perhaps naïve) question - I originally booked a couple of flights during the DSC window after registering for the DSC promo.

I've since had to cancel those flights, due to personal reasons but I received flight credits for these. My question is, will I receive DSC if I use those credits to book a flight now? Does it matter if I use the credits to book a more expensive flight?

Welcome to AFF Rohan!

Yes, as long as the new flights are taken before 21 March 2023.

This is because the flight credit and any subsequent rebooking using it retains the original PNR (booking reference). If you book new flights that would attract more status credits, the DSC will be based off the new routing as well.

Just note that QF could decide to convert your Flight Credits to Travel Passes to be “helpful”. If that happens you would get a new PNR when using the Travel Pass. So if you know what you want to book best to book it sooner rather than later.

Has anyone else received double points instead of double status credits? I registered for the double status credits and took a screen grab of the confirmation, but the first three flights that I subsequently booked have returned with double points!

Welcome to AFF, @Emily26!

A call to QF frequent flyer might get a result. Good keeping the screenshot trail which helps.

The two way offer was new and what you get depends on your last choice during the period to take up the offer. You didn’t register again for double points?

It would be helpful if you post your experience with call cantre, haven’t seen this issue raised before here.

cheers skip
