I have decided to leave the ticket as is and just do a 24 hour dash (in whY) , no big boost to SC's but what the heck.
It seems from quite a few anecdotes that a ticketed date is irrelevant for this promotion.I don't believe so. It would be the ticketed date. PNR's can be created without a ticket being issued (that's how TA's do it, remember ).
I flew on a YASA ticket BNE-SYD-PVG-SYD-BNE last week and based on their previous response rates I would have thought that the bonus SC's would have credited by now.
Has anyone experienced a delay in crediting post the 30 June cutoff for Domestic but not international travel?
If I booked a J in August BNE-AKL. Before June 30, then changed the dates ( still flying in August) making that change wouldn't stuff my double status credit offer would it?

The IT processing appears to rely upon the date the PNR is generated, ticked or not. Hint - refer to issues regarding "Gift Vouchers".
I've just fallen into this exact situation. I booked a new international J-class trip (so new PNR) in May for travel in August. Today, I changed just my return date by 1 day (still in August). All went OK. But I received a completely new ticket number for all flights. And a new ticket issue date - today's. The PNR stayed the same.
