I have done the TSV walk of shame couple of times. Once, when one of the FAs asked why I was back so soon, I said I was only in TSV to pick up some drugs. It didn't go down as badly as I thought it would.I've done this run twice and I can attest that it is good value. Whenever the crew ask why I have just gone for such a short period of time (after having completed the walk of shame - I'm assuming this is what you were referring to) I normally just tell them that I was dropping off contracts for someone that needed to be hand delivered, or something similarly uninteresting. Slightly OT, but anyway.
Or another option ADL-SYD-CBR return JASA for 48k points and (if I remember correctly) approx $165. Yields 200SC but is less cash outlay as only 150 SC are needed. Can be done in a day. Can also go via MEL, only 160 SC, still 48K points. Not sure of cash component.ADL-BNE-TSV return JASA can be done for 48k points and less than $400. It can also be done same day but includes a walk of shame at TSV. It's worth answering the crews questions regarding your motives for the 240 status credits earn though
Yep after explaining it in a little detail they were understanding of why I'd spend a day flying around eating/drinking/watching TV to gain/retain status.When 'caught' I have explained to the crew the concept of an MR and that I am doing it to retain status. They've always been positive towards me.
Do be careful with this, as double status credits are generally only given on QF flights so you won't get any more on LAN. However, if you are a lucky recipient of a double status credit offer, you may wish to book a JASA on QF (Business class any seat award) as these are earning seats and generally attract double status credits with a double SC offer (check the T&Cs, of course).<snip>I think I might hold off for a bit and see whether one of those double status offers that you mentioned come my way.
I agree, and if you're a good person who treats them with respect then you get really well looked after. There may be some bemusement but they do realise we're dedicated customers.I find that the FA's are far more accepting of doing a "status run" then trying to explain to people at work why you want to do it..
Most it seems would rather sit at home and watch tv...
Definitely!I agree, and if you're a good person who treats them with respect then you get really well looked after. There may be some bemusement but they do realise we're dedicated customers.
