Were you seriously suggesting that you would have maintained Gold by earning 280 status credits this month but for this surgery you speak of? Must have been quiet a trip you had to forego.

Covvers, easily covered by a return business class trip to, say, LAX.

Qantas have done this for me a couple of times, and are quite reasonable about it. If they have asked for medical certificates I think you are looking good, as if they were not going to do it they would not ask for those.
Hi Covvers, yes I was being pretty serious. Considering my routing is BNE-NRT-TPE-HKG-SIN-DXB-BNE :) .
Roughly around 800SC/yr I think, without checking
Sounds promising, thank you!

You'd need to check your status again on the 4th, despite what the website says: normally Qantas takes a few days to downgrade you if you're losing status, just to let any last flights credit to your account on the off chance you retained your tier on the last day.

I understand they do use a rolling average to allow for such drops.
Apologies, I misunderstood what you were saying. It makes sense now that you would, but for the surgery, have completed the trip you refer to. Hopefully, you have some luck with QF. I would imagine if you could point to an itinerary which you were forced to cancel or reschedule, they will look more favourably upon your request.
