That bit caught my attention too. If they're offering SCs I'd get on board, as we usually fly on cheaper fares with limited SC earn. Flight offsets are only a few dollars, so using them toward SCs would be a pretty sweet deal - though I notice they're being very tight lipped about exactly what's on offer, SC wise, whereas they've been pretty loud about the points potential.For me it would all come down to how many status credits and whether they count to lifetime. If it’s worthwhile then I’ll look into making the minimum contribution to get the tier.
Surprised some of the European ULCCs haven't cottoned on to this award-winning fuel efficiency concept yet. Greenwashing, cost saving AND torturing passengers... It's Michael O'Leary's dream christmas present.Your seat is an exercise bike bolted to floor and which transfers pedal power into the jet engines.
Quite typical of QF. Announce something that may come into play in 5 years time.Etihad has beaten Qantas to it, launching what it's calling the "world's first green loyalty programme" last week.
I guess they are technically correct, since Qantas has so far just made an announcement but hasn't actually launched their green tier yet.

Still, to claim they have the "world's first" sustainability program is bizarre when they announced this 12 days after Qantas and haven't actually launched it yet.
Yeah I'd be keen to know this as well.Does it say anywhere how our money will be spent, and in which proportion? For example, if I pay the $85 to off set my car, does *all* of that $85 (less GST) go to the carbon offset, or is there some commission or handling fee taken by QF? Who is paying for QF to build and maintain this part of the website and handle that cash flow and points accrual?
I had expected this was exactly the reason for the program, from the start… the same with offsetting your flights
Flights make sense. However, if I'm paying for a carbon offset for my car and Qantas is also claiming this for their use, they're double dipping on the offset.
