Last week drifting off to Silver, this week Platinum. Yahoo... but why?

Apparently Qantas are taking pity on those of us who have not had access to local QF flights and facilities. The criteria: something about Gold Coast, but i didnt get clarity on the specifics.

This happened last Friday 14th. Anyone else seen a change?

Unasked Status Upgrade

Mrs K noticed this morning that her status on the Qantas F.F page now shows as Platinum, a bump up from Gold.
She's delighted yet puzzled as she hasn't earned anywhere near enough S.C's.
Any one had a similar experience lately?
Maybe it's just a glitch, maybe the Status Faeries have smiled on her.

You're not anywhere near the Gold Coast by any chance? Heard of a few Gold Coast people getting presents!

Re: Unasked Status Upgrade

All kinds of strange things going on.

My son, who used to fly QF regularly, sent them an email berating them for the quality of their service and pricing on PER-SYD when compared to DJ. He has switched his flying to DJ and thought QF deserved to know why.

They sent him a letter (not an email) in reply, thanking him and telling him how valuable his opinion was to them, and enclosed a QP pass. He's smart enough not to bother using it in PER.

Hahaha!
Yes, we are.
It appears legit and not an admin/IT error.

I know I’m already Platinum, but haven’t received any bump to the next level :(

Would really appreciate a complimentary P1 upgrade :D

How do I get on this train?

Hang on a second here. Qantas was extremely strict on gifting people status if they were not already on that status. In fact there were people who missed out on Platinum for another year when they were a few SCs short.

Why not just make all Bronze members Platinum? :confused: Problem solved....

With the double SC's offer this year it was only 1800 SC's to get there. :p Then you too could have been ignored by QF!!!!

I was ignored for far less ;)

More seriously, I did contemplate it, and could have aimed a little higher and achieved it, but I won’t be flying international, and rarely out of QLD for the next year or more, so the current benefits would do nothing for me. If I could trade them all in for CL access just out of BNE I’d have flown the 1800/3600 already :p

Good for those that got the gift from QF, but IMHO a salp in the face to those that have to earn WP (esp self funded).

Wow, that is pretty generous of them.

In addition to the double SC offer for the Gold Coast at the moment this could be a great opportunity for those people located there. I wonder how much it is related to ones booking profile as well as their address?

Well done Qantas, this may get back some of your patronage.

Quite easy. Earn lots of SC's on QF's metal and they'll glad give you a 'Complimentary' P1 membership :)

Re: Unasked Status Upgrade

C/o The Virgin Lounge, Coolangatta Airport, Terminal Drive, Bilinga QLD ???

Could be an idea. Seems you can select a different mailing address in your profile so I could change my residential address to any random address and leave my mailing address as my current address...
