    Darn it! Just booked 7 domestic return trips for work on Tuesday. Could've shot up to Silver status with this promotion.

    •  

      always the way :/ Weren't free cancellation by chance, were they? ;)

    •  

      Wow. It is like Qantas knows that my Status credits (lifetime silver now) reset at the end of Feb and that I need to book 4-5 return flights next week. I still prefer Virgin domestically though (platinum now). Going to be an interesting call….

  •  

    Will this include books made with classic rewards?

    Full Terms & Conditions and the link to register are here: https://www.qantas.com/au/en/frequent-flyer/member-specials/...

  •  

    Quick question about status credits. When they reset on the given date say 31st March, does it start again from zero on 1st April or is it a running total of the last 12 months?

  •  

    a page of bad news followed by a para of good news at the bottom lol

  •  

    This is now live ?

  •  

    Did it say QF operated flights before? And now it just says all QF flights? This would mean that codeshare flights are also applicable as long as it’s booked via qantas, yes?

    • +2 votes

      It's still only QF-operated flight. It's never applied to codeshares in recent times.

      •  

        But even with flights that are operated by say China Eastern but are issued a QF flight ticket?

        •  

          Yes, even those. See the main offer page for details, under FAQs:

          What flights are eligible for this offer?
          Domestic and International Qantas operated flights with a ‘QF’ flight number in all cabins.

          And even further down in the Terms and Conditions:

          Any flight with a QF flight number on the ticket which is not operated by Qantas including Jetstar, Jetstar Asia, Jetstar Japan, Jetstar Pacific and other partner airlines are not eligible for this offer.

    If I book a flight now but then reschedule the time/date outside of the booking period but still within the travel period will I still be eligible for the double status credits?

    • +1 vote

      I've done this in the past with similar previous offers and always got the double status credits as long as the rescheduled flight still took place within the promo travel period.

        Interesting. I’ve done this and not received the double status credits. Travel was in the eligible travel period but rebooking was not in the eligible booking period.

        • +1 vote

          It depends on exactly how it's rebooked.

          Having been through this with VA recently.. some rebooking basically issues a new ticket. QAN and VA might clean up a lt of the presentation but in the back end someone has cancelled a booking, done a refund, made a new booking, applied a credit and.. it doesn't qualify any more as it's actually made outside of the marketing offer.

          Other times there is some leeway in the system to change details without requiring a 'rebooking' and your original ticket being issued stays the same even if some details have changed..

          And of course the final reason why this sometimes works is simply that there are so many possible permutations the code doesn't catch them all and some 'get through' to the keeper.

          I've had an upgrade (from discount economy into business) and actually been credited the business SC. That should never ever happen (and certainly has never happened since) but I certainly wasn't complaining to the airline at the time..

      •  

        my experience was the same as Kenb0 - got the status credits.

      •  

        Yeah I go the double after changing a flight twice.. it did cost me $99 each time to change though.. lucky work paid for it.

    Does it have to be booked on qantas.com? or can we use flight centre, amex travel etc as well?

  •  

    Would this work on a emirates operated flight with QF code?

  • +1 vote

    If booking a domestic flexi ticket, and then moving the date of the flight down the track. Are the double status credits still awarded?

  •  

    Question - if booking using a $450 credit on the Amex travel portal would this still result in double status credit if booked in the next 5 days? Been holding out for this and looking at booking. Appreciate it!

      Think of it like you're booking at a travel agent.

      As long as you've registered for the promotion and you've booked during the period and provided your QF number in the booking it will be fine.

      Website:

      How do I book?
      Flights can be booked via the Qantas website, a travel agent or Qantas Contact Centres. Fees and charges may apply.

  •  

    I need to get 90 more status credits before the 29th Feb. If I booked the flight, do I get the status credits after the booking confirmed, or the status credits is added after the flight?

    So, I need to go in April and I am wondering if the status credits will be added after I purchased the flight ticket? Or it will only be added after the flight in April?

  •  

    Looks like I'll need to have a chat with the boss about my Perth trip next month tomorrow :)

    Not that it matters. I think 400 points is probably going to be too hard for me to get by April to get to Platinum (unless I can convince the boss to let me fly business via Singapore).

    •  

      Or convince your business (boss) to pay for full economy and personally pay the difference between full economy and discount business..

      •  

        I don't need platinum that much. I'm happy with Gold. My business trips often include 3 flights to get to where I need to be, so having lounge access for transit is all I need (and no they wont pay for it) … but accessing the business lounge would just be nicer ;)

  •  

    Is Qantaslink, operated by one of the regional affiliates ("National jet systems" or similar), eligible?

    Anyone registered but not received the confirmation email?

    I’m reluctant to book anything until I receive it

  •  

    Jumped online to book a trip to Thailand. Minimum fare for the next 12 months is $1,261 which is about $350 higher than normal. I have never seen base fares for Thailand this high before. Guarantee that the price goes back to about $900 on Tuesday morning.

    Looks like Qantas web site is now ozbargained.

  •  

    I have a Qantas Lounge invitation I can transfer to a QFF member. Let me know if you would like to have it as I already have access to the lounges. Please note this is not for sale, would just like to gift it to someone.

    Lounge invitation info: General – can be used at any Qantas Club domestic lounge, Qantas International Lounge or Qantas operated International Business Lounge (excluding Los Angeles Tom Bradley Terminal) when departing on a Qantas or Jetstar flight number.

    seems like the website is having a meltdown. trying to do some bookings. can't.

  •  

    its back. Check your email. If you get close to paying you might have an email saying they are holding your booking until 11:59 pm. Takes ages for the link to load the webpage though.

    Offer has been extended

  •  

    …and so they should. I was up way past my bedtime last night trying to book. I got the email with the provisional booking and used that to pay just before midnight. Still have the "pay now" message against my booking.

    Stumbled on the one-day extension by luck late yesterday. On Monday I had seen the website fail and also been on hold longer than an hour (hung up before getting through). Would have been furious had I missed the extension.

  •  

    The call centre is still being hammered. Was on hold two hours last night without getting through. Today the new pre-recorded message said not to bother if you aren't calling about flights within the next 24 hours.
