Was a nice email to wake up to. I’ve got my first flight of 2022 booked for the 15th Jan assuming it goes ahead given the situation in NSW but didn’t book with Qatar as I wasn’t sure what would happen to status extensions. Will make every effort to take advantage of this for the coming year!

Still had a week up their sleeve to extend our status, no sweat.

Would've been pointless exercise to not extend.

Thanks QR.

Now if they could just sort out their inconsistency between earns on QF Dom I would possibly look at trying to maintain status with them

Could they have left it any later to announce this? 🤣

Good news for those who got the match but people have already started making plans & bookings for next year. So many aspects of the way Qatar has run this promo have been questionable, right from the start.

I'm very happy. I've no intention of crediting to QR but could be useful for lounges/baggage. My travels mean requalifying for QR is not worthwhile but nice to have the status while crediting to QF or BA which are easier. VA and SQ are the losers for me in this as I'm less inclined to fly revenue with them

Definitely a better to use the QF Domestic J lounge vs Qantas Club if they open back up in 2022.

I haven't got my email extension yet - has everyone else got their email.

Does anyone else find the Qatar app very flaky

Just logged in on PC and got this popup and definitely says expires 2021 - has other's status updated on app
