I am trying to route an European flight through DXB using QF numbers (got to have those SC's) and the best / only option is EK417 as QF now goes through SIN. It appears that QF are not code sharing this flight and that makes the whole booking, onward connections on QF code shares impossible. QF8413 and 8419 don't work to allow enough time to make the early connextions likewise transit (painful) via MEL and BNE.

Does anyone else have this issue now or is it just a response to the change of QF1

Andy I find it more painful to transit in Sydney than Melbourne. I like the staff at Melbourne so much better ,they are warm and friendly ,both at check in and in the lounge .I fly from Hobart Six times a year,

I think you may be jumping the gun.

The QF/EK alliance needs to be approved by the ACCC for the extension. As well, the QF1 shift to SIN means that the capacity (which is currently full between DXB and Major Aus airports) has to switch and be approved for EK for the 417 to be able to operate. On the EK website it says "subject to approvals".

When all the above happens, the QF code will appear I'm sure.

I hope you’re right. I’d like to book it on QF code. My high up insider at QF is researching so I’ll report back when I hear anything :-)
