A quick question - with the QFF soft landing down just one level for members that don't earn enough SC's to retain the same level in a following year - does that also apply for P1's - ie if a P1 doesn't make the needed number of SC's to retain P1 (however many that is), do they just drop to WP?

Red Roo has indeed confirmed that in the past. But I think it would be unwise to completely rely on soft landings from this point forward. I'm hoping for a gentle drop to WP, but not counting on it.

Here it is:

Cheers for that!

I'm in for a (hopefully) soft landing in a weeks time from WP to whatever the acronym for Gold is, but the travel for the next 12 months is looking massive at the moment - it's now out to at least 8 trips on QF7 from SYD to the Damn Freaking World airport and then onwards with AA.
