Unable to Book PE online when transiting in Hong Kong

Not sure if this is a sign of an upcoming "enhancment" however I noticed today that you cant select premium economy on anything where you transit through HKG to another airline via qantas.com... Beijing, Taipei etc all only offer Economy/Business/First.

Seems fine for DBX to Gatwick as a spot check I did on another point and given I recently travelled on a PE booking SYD-HKG-TPE interesting to see it disappear :(

Hopefully its just a problem with their website which can be easily fixed! HKG is a pretty popular transit point these days, despite what QF might think about Dubai.

There may also be bug with the post-June 2014 earning points calculator. The current version allows you to select SYD to NYC and gives the points and status credits earned. The new version shows an error because there is no direct flight. I hope this does not mean the end of the QF107 LAX-JFK leg.
