I just fired off an email to Qantas frequent flyer, maybe I'm being a bit impatient but anyway
QFF have acknowledged my request, with the boilerplate text:
"Thank you for contacting Qantas Frequent Flyer Service Centre.

No points so far, I wonder if JQ counts as a partner airline?
They have, the route is JQ3 and per FlightAware it has been operating for some time.Have they resumed the route? I thought they'd only resumed MEL?

The real question now is when Uncle Alan will reopen the QF lounge at HNL as it remains "temporarily" closed (flying back to SYD on the 28th). Hopefully Uncle Alan will make up for this by keeping the Dom on ice for my arrival at the SYD INTL J lounge.
At this point I'd gladly take an airport voucher but doubt I'd receive it flying JQ as a QF Gold. In any event, I'm staying at the Best Western Plaza Hotel near the airport. Hopefully the breakfast buffet is plentiful.Can I be blunt and say it's a terrible lounge and I never want to set foot in it again?
When I was in HNL in Jan (flying QF104) they gave me a $20 airport food voucher and it was a significant improvement on the QP.
I'd prefer the AA lounge if it was a choice.
(Looks like JQ3 is only 3x weekly - Thu, Sat, Mon)
Are we back to slow JQ posting? I'm now at 3 weeks since my last JQ flight.
Flight I took in Feb posted 2 days later.
Flight 1 of 2 taken on Thu, 12 May. SCs and points posted on Mon, 16th May.If no one else can provide any data points my next JQ flight is next week. I’ll post my experience with crediting in the days afterwards.
I've got a long-haul "domestic" flight to HNL from SYD later this week with JQ and will report back if the status credits post in a timely manner.
As a Canadian with NEXUS (Global Entry) there is no real border I have to cross upon landing at most US ports (at least that was the case pre-COVID). Just a finger print scan and you're good to go. I suppose these arrivals may have added maybe 10 minutes to my trip since I needed to go through the GE terminal, exit customs/immigration and re-clear security in the TSA pre-check line, but for the most part it may as well be a domestic flight. The only thing that is different I suppose is some countries (like Australia) have an emmigration process for international departures, something I haven't seen in many other countries like UK, Canada and USA.How is Oz to HNL domestic?
4 recentish JQ flights domestic in NZ. 2 posted within 48 hours. The other 2 have not posted yet despite 2 being earlier than a flight that has posted. So looks like I will need to chase up.
