This is straight from the QF activity page

It's always said that. There have been times when BL and VF didn't count, even though they are part of "Jetstar". If GK counts to QFF, does it also count to JMB? Will JM count if it ever gets off the ground?

I haven't been keeping up with AFF for most of the year, so I can't hope to catch up in all the changes in a hurry. I've only skimmed this thread and a couple of others.

I've been planning a US trip, including various AA & US flights in First (for now, I'm still trying to maintain WP). I've calculated SCs using Mileage Monkey as I have in the past, and I thought I'd better double check using the QF calculator, which is when I realised that the world has changed since the US trip I took last year. :(

So for now, it looks like Mileage Monkey is giving the wrong SC figures. And I'm going to have to replan my trip if I want to retain WP...

And the few good US Airways flights I'd found are probably going to be significantly less impressive when recalculated with the updated SC earning rates. :(

The poor folk at Mileage Monkey are probably banging their head against a wall trying to work out what the new algorithm is.

The MileageMonkey distances are still the same. I just apply those miles to the SC earning charts.

Re: North American AA earning First Class

I read somewhere on the weekend the QF program calculation went from 5 fare types and 10 zones, to 8 fare types and a mind boggling 22 zones under the new system.

Simpler it ain't.

Re: North American AA earning First Class

Just flown SYD-SIN-LHR in BA Discount Economy and received less SC and points then I did from my Flexible Economy DRW-SYD last week. Could fly to the UK once a month and wouldn't retain Gold, but doing PER-KTA would! Oh well.

Confirm that JAL Domestic First earns under the everything else table.

HND-cough 549 points and 60 SC for about A$270, and a large comfy chair and very nice lunch
