As his first flight is qf it definitely applies to his booking if he has a mixed revenue/redemption itinerary.Also as it's a oneworld rule it's supposed to be adhered to by all carriers but I agree it's compliance can vary and needs to be pointed out to check in agents often due to lack of awareness

Oh, mate, I could not even describe to you how much I prefer our "smaller, secondary" airport to "primary" but incredibly ugly one in Sydney! And I am solely missing old good days when our airport was twice smaller (may be tertiary? or even quaternary? how I could ever fly from such miserable airport????) but many times nicer and welcoming. And FWIW I strongly prefer Melbourne to Sydney as a whole.BTW my "rant" was an answer to two previous posts when they ask why people dislike Sydney airport. You may be happy with such "fun of travel" and deliberately buy tickets via Sydney even if direct flight exist from Brisbane, who knows? Though in my books it called "masochism".Cheers

Don't expect anything special from this airline. We gave them up a decade ago.

For me, questions about the effectiveness of 'transit' in SYD/MEL transfers or single/combined tickets skirt the point entirely.
Really, this issue is one that harks back to BA's poor OW planning and policy decisions, which fortunately some OW carriers (JL, QR etc) are choosing to ignore - as they should - and some (such as QF & AA) meekly comply with, without question. Coherency of policy is the key - and this is missing in spades.
Forgetting OW 'policy' and even FF 'tiering', if I were travelling J domestic and transferring to F internationally, I would expect and demand some better consideration and convenience for the passenger. These are 'high value' passengers and the BA-inspired policy completely ignores and abrogates the heavily promoted 'seamless' oneworld travel policy. A huge FAIL in my opinion - and one that places front-line staff in a somewhat invidious position, let alone the negative impression that the customer or passenger is left with.
