Bit of advice required please

Given QF is responsible for the cancellation, you’re right to expect some resonable flexibility for their part, especially in view of your status. The alternatives you’re seeking are entirely reasonable, in my view.

They are correct you are asking for extra routing which costs more every time. Sure status will help out and get you perks in certain times but it's a bit rich expecting them to waive any extra fees just because you are platinum.

I don’t see how status should effect QF response, wouldn’t a bronze of silver flyer also be subject to the same inconvenience, how is their inconvenience of any less value than a platinum.

I agree they should be flexible. I also agree they should be flexible for everyone!

Please - there's no need for racism in your comment. The call centre is in Hobart isn't it?

There should be no extra charge for the added sector. In the past have had my HKG-MEL cancelled and was rerouted through SYD at no extra charge. Similarly LAX-MEL was rerouted through BNE with no charge given Qantas was at fault. I’d call up and ask again. Good luck!!
