However, there may be tax implications on such a transfer. Eligible Family Members may use the Award whether the Member travels with them or not. An Award ticket issued for an Eligible Family Member must be redeemed in the name of the passenger travelling.

(Hopefully after this trip she will be! ) What do you think the chances are of Qantas questioning me when its all e-ticketed?
Mal said:I have never heard of Qantas asking for proof. But they reserve the right to and can do some very nasty things to your FF account if they work out you're scamming them.

daYZman said:BTW, does Virgin Atlantic's Flying Club offer the this benefit as well?
The FF number must always agree with the booking details. Therefore you can only earn points for yourself.pongie said:how about earning points? Can you earn opints for flights your *relative* make? Or do they need their own membership?
