I'm a gold FF, trying to book 3 or 4 separate SYD/LAX flights for my customers and getting an error 4620. Anyone heard of it?

Sounds unusual. Try again tomorrow I suggest.
I'd love to - of course :) I'm travelling from early tomorrow morning and won't be able to get back to it until Friday morning.

terrible.sometimes I take the luxury of having a QANTAS OFFICE AT THE SHOPPING MALL close to my home for granted after it closed sometime last decade.it was so much easier and staff always keen to help.nowadays as mentioned you have these lengthy wait times on the phone to them or worse for booking have to deal with airport staff and do an unplanned visit there.

A benefit of Status! Those without are generally waiting over an hour to reach QF by phone currently.

Does QF prioritise queues based on FF status ( i don't remember). However, virgin does. Most times i go to an agent within a minute (VA Platinum), but i have'nt had a chance to call QF in a long time. I know Cathay says "You have been prioritised in the queue, i'm not sure this is because they know what number the call is coming from and what bookings are attached to it" or is it a standard phrase?
So I should count myself as ‘lucky’ to only be waiting 24 minutes! If I had to wait an hour I’d vote with my feet and go elsewhere, it’s just not worth the hassle
Yes they do prioritise based on status. I have platinum colleagues who laugh at me when I tell them how long my waits are because they get answered within a minute.

I am still on hold after 35 mins
OK so I have had to call back this morning regarding the same booking as the other day and the wait is even worse!

I have never had a problem. I have always been answered and helped within five minutes.

I rang the Qantas FF Number twice from Tokyo recently on different days (different reasons). On both occasions the wait was going to be between 15-20 minutes but on both occasions I was given the option of a callback. At almost exactly 15 minutes they called back and the message tells you you are the very front of the queue. About 1 minute later I am through. Awesome service.

As Gold you are probably getting directed to the New Zealand call centre. They are still finding their feet I’m told so calls taking longer thus wait times longer. With Platinum during working hours you get the Hobart office. Many experienced staff transferred from Melbourne. Quick and efficient, excellent knowledge and service. No remedy to your situation but maybe a reason why the longer wait times.
