Just received an email inclusive of the following:

To take advantage of this offer, simply:
Register and make a new eligible booking on a Qantas Classic Award flight with a QF flight number between 12.01am (AEST) 26 September and 11:59pm (AEST) 20 October 2014 and travel any time during the following travel periods:

Same email just arrived in my inbox (well, of course, addressed to me, not you, Hvr).

Both SWMBO and I both got the offer so maybe a broad target group if it is targeted.

Also received this.
Just doesn't make sense to me. Fairer and Simpler (making it harder to keep status). Now you can get SC's on classics. I know this isn't the first time that it has happened, but I am still confused as to what logic QF Loyalty are using. :confused:

Got the email and was wondering how long before it appeared on AFF. HVR just pipped at the post!

Disappointing that J only earns at economy rates, but better than nothing.

My wife got it, but as mentioned above, PE and Business only earn at Economy rate!! Needless to say she won't be registering nor using this offer.

I booked an award flight literally less than an hour before this offer arrived :(

I wonder if it will still count; the T&C don't say anything about booking after you register, it just says you have to book after 12.01am 26/9 which I did...

But doesn't this mean than an X class which you'd think was discount Y is earning at Y...so there's value in the cheap ones.

Here's an interesting condition in the fine print:

The Status Credits earned through this promotion will count towards your tier membership, but not count towards the four flight rule for reaching or keeping your membership status

So no ~. Curiouser and curiouser.

I got it as well, very unusual for some SC freebies at WP1 level.

I'll certainly use it for some of those dates next year.

A joke?

We had to remove ASAs, but we'll reintroduce them now. But without the co-payment!

Status credits on classic awards, double points and double SC offers. I am failing to see how this is fairer and simpler. We now have a tapestry over which there are patches, repairs and new added tassels. it's like being in a carpet shop in a bazaar... 'don't like this carpet? Let me show you another...' (and another... and another...)

But only economy earn, even on J flights...

Nothing for me, can't be important enough.
