Qantas - Qantas Frequent Flyer

Status credits with OW are very much inconsistent (ie flying MH in standard economy nets you nothing), whilst I’m about to earn 120SC for flying BA’s Club Euro (arguably worse than MH economy) between LHR-VIE for AUD$600 return. Whilst I’m quite happy to take the good with the bad, there will be some flyers who will always be getting the short end of the stat creds.
Most of my colleagues here in Perth aren’t overly keen on chasing QF loyalty, but they are certainly a clear winner here. With VA winding back their transcon widebody services and QF tipped to add more (once PER-CDG starts) Qantas get my vote domestically.

I earned 40sc for KUL-HKG with MAS in J. Maybe your figures are off.

Been this way for a few years since Simply Fairer changes were introduced. It's the Qantas FF program and they want you to fly on Qantas in preference to other oneworld airlines.

The QFF program is what it is. It is designed to persuade people to fly Qantas instead of its competitors. Given the popularity of the program, a lot of frequent flyers are ok with that. The program is not meant to suit everyone. You have the option not to chase status with Qantas if you feel it is not in your benefit to do so. I think there was an article on this site recently with tips on how to free yourself from an airline loyalty program.

Qantas have just reduced Life time Club membership to 50 years. We bought our children Life club on their 18th birthdays and suddenly there is an expiry date. That means they are akready a qurter thru their memberships. When they turn 68 it expires. Very sneaky and underhanded.

I think Virgin and Qantas are pretty similar. And when one is better than the other, the other changes to end up the same eventually.Â I've had good and bad experiences across both cabins on Virgin and Qantas, and experienced poor service from their respective call centres.Â People should just choose the airline that they like.Â Â

What a rant, just enroll in Enrich and fly Aust/KL direct!

To be honest, Qantas earning rate on partner airlines is one of the best in the alliance. (Compared to CX) But I won’t stop you if you wanna join BA program, with travel plans on BA metal annually, or you wanna join the tricky JL plan, which I doubt how long that insane promotion will last.
Check the enrich redemption rate. You will abandon it ASAP.

Enrich being one of those programs?
Has this been confirmed in writing, as I wouldn't put it past being a result of the recent updates to QF's IT systems and backend?
Where it used to state Expiry Life: It has the 2 dates when my children will have their 50th anniversary of joining. In other words their 68th birthday. One in 2054 and the other in 2056. quite odd seeing those dates become a relevant factor in our lives. Although not mine by then. haha

I doubt that will fly. They can't sell a product as lifetime then say after you've paid, its not actually lifetime anymore.
