Thanks - I'm wondering if you'll even be able to, or have to, get off the plane given such a short stop (and no lounge access).Absolutely no way you can do this with a 60 minute fuel stop.

Also, looks like there's been very little fanfare from QF for this flight - normally the Qantas PR machine manages to create endless publicity for the most banal of things these days, let alone a new route launch!
But it's not a "non-stop Qantas flight from Sydney to Delhi"...And SMH also covered it:
A non-stop Qantas flight from Sydney to Delhi took off on Monday morning, the first time the airline has flown to the Indian city in more than 40 years.www.traveller.com.au
Qantas Points and Status Credits may not be earned on some Fare Types, booking classes, flights or routes
Can anybody confirm the status credit earn on the Delhi flights? I've been unable to find this for the QF flights when looking at booking options, or in the calculator... and there's some fine print on the website that has me concerned:
Surely that's not the case here?
what would it be for a classic flight reward as a points club member? TIA.The Qantas points/status credits earning table has been updated, with Delhi added.
SYD-DEL is 40 SCs for Economy Sale, 50 SCs for Economy Saver and 75 SCs for Economy Flex. 150-165 SC for Business class, depending on fare class.
As far as I can tell, there is no specific earning category for DRW-DEL so it would be 30-60 SC in Y and 120-140 SC in J based on the "all other flights" table.

Thanks so much for your response .These are the Points Club status credit earning tables:
And the Qantas region definitions:
India is not listed as being part of any of the regions listed in the Points Club earning tables, so it would be based on the flight distance. All of the Qantas India routes are between 5,000 and 6,500 miles, so that's 26 status credits in Y or 56 status credits in J.
The inaugural flight now has the dubious title of being dubbed an "exposure site" by SA Health.
They're listed Rows 11-15 on QF67 on Monday as an exposure site, although they're also suggested this was an 1130 arrival, so possibly wrong info?
But does suggest then that they're selling the SYD ADL leg for domestic flyers?
