Hmm, not sure the sums add up. 440 people (not excluding small furry creatures) have read this thread. In the scheme of Qantas bookings, I would not think this is a significant number. I actually suspect the number of people who actively exploit DSC's to seriously enhance their status is quite low. To most I speak to, assuming they've even noticed a DSC promotion is on, it's a nice little bonus but not something they get strategically serious about.I think the only folks holding out for a DSC promotion are actually reading and posting in this thread! And QF probably know this and are probably eavesdropping, so when we all post that we’ve given up waiting and made our bookings .....wham, that’s when they’ll launch the promotion!
Lets be honest, a vast number of QFF flyers still don't understand the distinction between SC and points (just read facebook for 5 minutes, if you can stomach it), and given many won't reach status, handing out points which can be converted to toasters (which have a once-off cost) vs SCs "that QFF take away every year" (in their eyes) means only those who really understand how this could help them leverage a higher status (and therefore cost QF considerably more per flight than they would as lower status) would bite.I would not think this is a significant number. I actually suspect the number of people who actively exploit DSC's to seriously enhance their status is quite low.
Officially laughed loudlyRepeat after me: “My name is mrsterryn and I’ve been addicted to status for...”
I thought his reply like mine to Mrs Blackcloud would be "Well what is the point of status unless you can get to enjoy it!"Officially laughed loudly
One of the worst (best) things about retiring is the time to play .....um research trips
Unfortunately my husband has now retired and wants to ummm research as well
He says it is his time to gallivant (I do need to point out he is platinum and will be maintaining for at least another couple of years *grumble grumble *)
