Correct. Was publicly available. Nothing private about it.So I get another response earlier today after I pointed out that I booked direct with QF. The response is basically the same but more convoluted wording including:
“Private fares are made available to certain groups of customer through certain booking channels. They offer discounts and/or different conditions to corresponding published fares.
Unfortunately this fare type is not eligible to earn Qantas points in Qantas Business Rewards, as it is a private discounted fare.
Some private fares are available to QBR members, some are not. For example, a discounted private fare designated for a business with a corporate deal, and distributed through travel agency, is not available to a QBR member who is not on a corporate deal.
Further, QBR member Deal fares are technically private fares but are eligible to earn Qantas Points in QBR because they are specifically designed for the purpose.”
Correct me if I’m wrong, but the Adelaide/South Oz promotion was publicly available to all????
They've used lots of words that all up make no sense.
I'd also consider asking them how one can tell in advance which tickets would and wouldn't be eligible to earn QBR points, specifically on relation to booking via the QF website.
