    Does anyone know when SYD Airport Tax and duty free became a partner of the QFF program?

    I believe from Today ... at least that's the first I had heard of it.

    There was no mention of ff points in the August FF Holidays Newsletter promoting the 15% off voucher: Bookings - Holidays - Red Email Exclusive Duty Free

    I'm sure if points were to be earned back than it would have been to the forefront of the blurb.

    Also, there's a 1 Million point promotion mentioned in the months Australian Way.

    There's this one for 10% off the first $100 pre-ordered online:
    http://ourworld.harveyworld.com.au/newsletter/images/pdf/dutyfree.pdf

    The 20% off voucher I believe is a $20 off per $100 voucher that they have instore and give when you purchase something outbound.

    It's in another thread if you want to try and find it.

    The 20th birthday promo has prompted the trivia buff in me. Along the lines a few months ago of "who has the lowest number?".
    I just dont recall FF exsisting that long ago. I am sure as an Aust Air Flight Deck member in 1989 they didnt have it ??. Also I remember a Qantas exec. in Fiji told me in 1992 ( the year of the AA&Q merge) that with many trips on Qantas - you could have your ticket endorsed as a CIP (commercially Important Person) - So me thunks that FF wasn't around with them either ??

    Qantas.com doesnt list FF in its history page either: About Qantas - Our Company - History - Qantas Through the Years

    So does soemone out there know what the deal was back then and how it was run - pre Internet of course:confused: Cheers TD

    I can't give you pre-internet info, but I can show you what the Qantas/QFF websites looked like back in 1997.

    Qantas Airways Limited

    Makes for interesting reading.

    Cheers - what a cool site!
    It got the grey matter working. Back then it was a 3 tier system and Silver meant something! I now recall being given (& still have) an overnight back with a FF logo just for going Silver - would have been in '94.

    Qantas and Australian Airlines both had their own programs before the merger. The Qantas program was pretty basic in the early days, but they did have the Captains Lounge at most Australian international airports. Just when they started that I don't know, but my first visit was in 1989. I don't know if the Captains Lounge was only for J/F passengers or if there was a paid membership available at that time.

    I joined Australian Airlines FF program in Sept 1991, which I believe was not too long after the FF program commenced. Flight Deck pre-dated the FF program by several years, providing lounge access but no FF "bank account" as such.

    I assume it is either the Qantas Captains Lounge or Flight Deck that commenced on 1987 rather than a true FF program as such.

    I think you may be right there.
    My Dad told me he was a "QT" Qantas Traveller - in the 70's. This gave him access to the Captains Lounge but he mostly travelled J then. As a Y passenger upgrades were frequent and almost expected. In fact he remembers getting newsletters saying the priveldge would be withdrawn if people didnt stop demanding them! Dejavu!!
    OT
    Ironically before the merge, as a FD member, if I flew Air Pacific we had reciprical access but not is we were on a QF.
    In the early days of QC we were also allowed access without travelling and until much later unlimited quests, so long as you had passess. Record was 17 (on a sunday morn.) ! - imagine the pack if that was the case now:shock:

    While we are sitting round the campfire talkin bout the good ol days, I remember a Thrifty promo in prob 96 where I had a Telstra/Qantas Visa and the points with bonuses worked out to earn 5 plus 8 extra bonus so 13 qff points per dollar.

    Those were the days!

    It appears that Qantas had a good FF program back in the 1990's. I notice earning FF points/km (not mile) for flights, car hire at 8 FF points/$ spent and other partners with FF points earning more generous than today.

    Enhancements to the QFF program have taken their toll....
