Does anyone's job/work pay for business/work related flights in First or Biz class?

If so, what do you? Just curious..

Public servant. So in reality, *you* pay for my flights in J :)

(All our international flights are J, for OH&S reasons apparently. No complaints from me.)

Unfortunately mate Chairman's Club has no relevance with how much you fly, but more your position in your organisation (~Chairman) and how much your organisation spends on Qantas (~$1m+ pa).

Federal government SES band 1 and above get CL automatically, even those who have the reigns on travel budgets nothing like $1m.

If you work for the federal government (not as an MP interestingly) they insist on QANTAS not giving employees any points (do get status however:D ). So you can't upgrade to J or even book an award for yourself, even if you wanted to for work.

You can still do ODUs, just don't expect your agency to pay. I pretty much always get an ODU (with my own points mind you) when I fly CBR-PER or SYD-PER, it's not a fun flight in Y in a 737.

Federal government SES Band 1 and above get to fly internationally in F. I really fail to see a business justification for it, J should do. They also get J everywhere domestically except between CBR and SYD ... even the government knows that one's a bit hard to justify :)
