    I think that they should give out points on JetSaver flights since more people buy them over JetFlex!
    This is the reason why I don'y join QFF and don't 'fly JetStar', I fly on Virgin Blue instead and am a member of Velocity.
    I would like for them to give out points on JetStar flights though. Will it ever happen?

    But Jetstar is supposed to be a budget airline so I would not expect any kind of benefits. Virgin has positioned itself as a "new world carrier" that is in between budget and full service so you do get some benefits.
    When Jetstar first come out you did not even get SC or points for JetFlex but they changed this, I guess after complaints from QF FF as QF were giving up too many routes to just Jetstar. Also note as Jetstar is NOT part of OW only QF FF get points not any other airline FFP.

    There are more ways to earn QFF points than Virgin Blue points. Moreover, the range of ways you can redeem points is also wider in QFF than Virgin.

    If Virgin could only offer points in a way that QFF did with Jetstar, how is it going to do it? There's no Premium fares there.

    I think it would be rather odd if more people were buying JetFlex over JetSaver.

    Giving points is not a case of handing them out where the 'demand' goes; it's to reward specific travellers for using certain services. I'm just glad that Discount Economy now gets 1:1 for points:miles (compared to before when it was 0.7:1 points:kms with no minimum points guarantee).

    EDIT: typo above, thanks Dave.

    Hmm... Wouldnt 1 point per 0.7 kilometre be better than now for many flights :)

    Indeed. they don't offer points on jetsaver fares since they are the cheap ones; points are deliberately reserved for those on higher fares, not just for the majority
