Qantas - Qantas Frequent Flyer

I recently took a Jetstar domestic flight in NZ between Christchurch and Auckland. Whilst I found the pre-flight announcement that NZ liquor licensing laws prevented sale of alcohol before 8am slightly disconcerting, it was actually very pleasant and quiet flight.
The flight was a week ago and I'm currently awaiting my Qantas Points+SC's which I'm keen to have in my account sooner rather than later. The official line from Jetstar is 6 weeks but my experience of flying with Jetstar in Australia is that the Points+SC's normally take about 2-3 days to get credited. I was wondering if anyone had any experience how long they normally take to make it across the Tasman for NZ domestic flights?

I do AKL - WEL quite a bit and always take the upgrade option to get SC and QFF points - I normally get mine in my account within 48hrs.
Thanks Mark,I did choose the upgrade, and have confirmed with Jetstar prior to posting that I had chosen and will be getting the sc's+ points. Your response backs up my thoughts on something potentially being amiss as I was expecting something to show up after about 48 hours.

Hey mate - am living in NZ at the moment and so am doing all my domestic travel with JQ. Many times the points have appeared immediately. I don't opt for the extra cash package which includes SC, I take the free bulk standard 400pts on the cheapest fare. My last journey though in Nov didn't auto include and I had to chase Qantas up over it. I chased them about 4 days post flying, points were there about a week later.
Hi Guest, join in the discussion on
