What is the record for Status Credits accumulated on QF in a year? How many do really frequent flyers accumulate? I travel a lot and re-qualified for P1 "easily" this year, but bet there are folks who travel much more.....

I highly doubt that this information would be publish anywhere, however Qantas' highest published points bonus is 100,000 points once 7,000 status credits have been earned in a year. I would suggest the record is well north of 7,000 status credits.

Thx Peter, I didn't know about the 100,000 FF points bonus - not that I'd get ever get 7,000 Status credits. I often get the 50,000 bonus points for the 2,400 SCs; but never make P1. I looked into what is required to get 7,000 SCs in a year. 9 return trips in First Class from Sydney - London comes in just over that total, at 7,560 SCs. Is it really possible that anyone is doing Sydney - London that many times in a year - in First! Wow!!

One person in my previous organisation is literally on a long haul flight every couple of days.
Making some pretty conservative assumptions:
182 flights per year, half of these on Qantas = 91 flights
J class Sydney-Singapore, for argument's sake = 120 Status Credits
91 x 120 = 10,920 Status Credits
Not suggesting he'd be anything like the record, but there are absolutely people out there who do this.
Ee by gum! That's Yorkshire dialect for OMG!!! Why not just move to Singapore? No need to answer that...but what a dreadful life IMHO.
Sorry if I wasn't clear; Singapore was just an example.
He flies regularly to Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Shanghai, Dubai and London with Qantas; Los Angeles and Honolulu with Air NZ; and Santiago with LAN.

And there would be plenty like that around the traps.
The 9 return trips from Sydney to London in first isn't totally unrealistic eitehr. Think a head of business with an Aus and Europe based region that commutes every 6 weeks. If they're fortunate enough to be flying first, it's well within reach.
