Yea, that's true. I've got a Qantas DSC over the weekend for Intl flights.It's pretty standard for airlines to only offer bonuses on their own metal. Same for Qantas' DSC offers also.
Would be nice but still has other international routes. QF doesn’t have domestic routes included in their DSC promotion which is a PITA but it is what it is. I’m just thankful both are offering somethingGiven what Qantas are doing I am gobsmacked Virgin have not allowed this on Hong Kong flights as I posted above. That dopey route is bleeding money already, and has been since inception, and this double offer might have attracted some bookings.
We have done three paid oz-HKG Business Class flights in recent months, one done only based on the double SC offer - in fact I recall that was on HK Airlines metal out of Cairns or OOL and think even those qualified.
"Qantas has been sending out more targeted double status credit offers this weekend. This time, the offer applies to all Qantas international flights for travel until 9 May 2020.
The offers are targeted, meaning you’ll only be eligible if you received an email from Qantas with a link to register for the promotion. Many AFF members have received this offer; if you didn’t get one, make sure you’ve opted in to emails from Qantas Frequent Flyer!
With this particular offer, you can earn double status credits on international flights that are marketed and operated by Qantas (i.e. on a Qantas aircraft and booked with a “QF” flight number). All fare classes are eligible. But domestic flights and flights operated by partner airlines are not eligible. This offer expires on Wednesday 22 May 2019 and you’ll need to travel between 23 May 2019 and 9 May 2020 to earn double Qantas status credits.
Qantas hasn’t been holding back on the double status credit offers lately! The airline has been continuously sending targeted offers to members over the past few months, such as the one we reported on last month. The most recent public offer (i.e. open to all Qantas Frequent Flyer members) was in February this year."
