    Once again, simply spitting in the face of long-standing members.

        Understood, and many other 'loyalty' programmes.
        But, once again, the downvoting trolls are attacking factual posts.

    I'm not sure what's the fuss this being only for new members? Why would existing members be interested in discount for something they already have, and they don't need to pay again.

    It's only the join fee that's waived, and I'm not sure if anyone ever paid that (by themselves, not by company)? If someone did - please return the OZB membership card.

    New members still need to pay $480 annual fee and get 50 status credit, or $880 for two years and get 100 status credits. It's not particularly good deal.

    Those who already have membership have similarly priced ways of extending their status and getting credits - wait for double status credit promotions, and book high-yielding national flights. And Qantas might again give away some "status support" credits, like they did last year. Or if someone is changing from e.g. Virgin, Qantas will happily match status-for-status with attainable challenge.

      I haven't looked, but this post suggests that new members will also receive 20% off the 1-year or 2-year memberships. Is that the same as existing members pay for renewing?

        QC revamped their pricing structure a month or so back, so annual fees went up for new members, and the joining fees went down a lot. (Existing members had their annual fees grandfathered.)

        Any new member is paying more in annual fees than existing members, so this 'discount' only gives that back (plus a bit more).

        Swings and roundabouts really.

      I'm sure there's plenty of self-employed people, that have paid it, in the past.

      You know the rules Jef, no one is allowed to get something better than moi. It's the same for 99% of loyalty programmes so not sure why Qantas should cop all the bile for. Not saying they dont deserve the vitriol for all their other business practices just not this one.

    Does anyone know if you get into the Qantas Domestic lounge if you have a jetstar ticket? And is it unlimited alcohol?

    •  

      Yes & Yes.

      That is, providing you have a Qantas Club membership.

      •  

        I don't have qantas club membership but I do have a Lounge pass

        •  

          There are some lounge passes that can only be used with Qantas ticketed flights and there are times where you may be refused if the lounge is full and you are on Jetstar and trying to use a single pass. Unlikely but it can happen. There should be rules on the pass that tell you if you can use or not, otherwise tell us where you got the pass from?

      Does anyone know if you get into the Qantas Domestic lounge if you have a jetstar ticket?

      Yes, although in some airports the Qantas Club may be in a different terminal from the Jetstar flights.

      And is it unlimited alcohol?

      Subject to Responsible Service of Alcohol.

        how will different terminal have any effect?

          It will have, when you need to walk back after all the booze.

          •  

            @Jef Tino: That's a privilege, free exercise.

        •  

          Very simple, it reduces the amount of time you can spend in the lounge.

    I’ve never understood paying for this. You need to fly often to get the value of it, but if you fly often you get gifted it anyway. I guess for those that KNOW they will fly very often but haven’t yet earned it.
    Even in the worse case scenario, you’re in bronze and 0 status credits and fly short trips like SYD<->MEL. 700 SC to earn gold, 40 SC per round trip, ~17 round trips,$480 annual pass = ~$28 per club visit. You’d want to only fly after midday to access alcohol, then drink at least two glasses and have a meal to really break even.

      It ain't 2016 anymore mate, nobody books those 40 SC fully flex flights lol. Even the ASX20s.

        We’ll call me old fashioned. Everyone I know does. Guess it depends on who’s paying for your ticket. I get a lot of use out of the flex tickets.
