Thanks Yada Yada, I haven't done a QF/DJ transfer before so I wasn't sure. To be safe I will probably go hand luggage only (and invest in one of those little wheely cases after years of resisting).Yada Yada said:You probably already know this but just in case, after collecting your luggage head back upstairs to the departure level and wall through the carpark past the valet parking office and straight out the other side and across the road into T2. It's the most direct line between the two terminals.
Seems DJ OLCI is not available because we have Blue Zone seats allocated. Aarrrghghh.Dave Noble said:If doing it without checked luggage and making use of DJs OLCI and PYOBP , then it would seem quite doable
I agree. But the policy was imposed from above (way above from what I understand) so any complaints to managers get a sympathetic response but there's nothing anyone can do.NM said:I think such a mixed carrier domestic itinerary is taking the BFOD a little too far.

Steve - I've struck this too. I guess they want to look at you first before allowing you to sit in an exit row.StevePER said:Seems DJ OLCI is not available because we have Blue Zone seats allocated. Aarrrghghh.
Its a shame its your return flight that is affected. If you don't make the connection, then its not the company's problem but your problem as you return home late for your camping weekend.StevePER said:In this case I specifically need to be home early to go camping on the weekend. They proposed a couple of "options", I chose DJ CBR-MEL-ADL-PER, but instead they booked me with mixed carriers. Once it was booked it was too hard to change.
I considered going with checked luggage on the off chance of this happening but I need to get that flight so that I can go camping after work. If I miss that flight the next one on DJ is six hours later (four hours on QF). Maybe next time.Kiwi Flyer said:Look on the bright side. If you misconnect despite best endeavours (and not unusual circumstances) then it is an opportunity to get the policy changed.
Yep, both on the same booking. The DJ error message indicates it's because of Blue Zone, I'll try QF OLCI from The VLounge tomorrow.dajop said:Are the QF & DJ flights in the one booking or separate? This may affect ability to do OLCI.
Can't change to the earlier flight because they've booked me in V class on the way back (which is odd since company policy is to book flexi saver). I really don't understand our travel policy anymore.Dave Noble said:I would suggest so; it would only need a 15 minute delay to the flight plus 15 mins to collect bags to cause you to risk missing the DJ flight. An extra 15 minutes leeway will definately be worth having I would say , especially if checking any luggage in
