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?
That doesn't answer my question? Other than speculating, have you got it confirmed by QF that it is anything more than a glitch in the QF IT back-end (very possible), or is it a change to the product?

Maybe it's the lifetime of the airline? Maybe Qantas figure they'll be out of business by 2050? I write this humorously, but you never know.

Yes, Oneworld is a farce that might do a few good things for the airlines but does almost nothing for passengers. In the days before alliances we had interline agreements and fares that allowed you to mix and match any airlines that had such an agreement and you were only limited by the mileage allowance on that route. Now we have a world of codeshares that don't really work and partners that aren't even combinable. Try flying to Hong Kong and back, oneway on QF and the other on CX. Both members of Oneworld that supposedly offers seamless travel between partners but apparently the partnership only occurs if they're not competing on a route.

I'd disagree. I did Queenstown to Auckland on Air NZ, put my VA to get SCs and points and I indeed got 10SCs, yet an appalling 173 points... even with JQ on NZ you get a minimum of 400points. Plus VA is a virtual alliance, no real partnership. The lounges VA Gold and Plat get in SQ when flying economy are a joke and many more lounge options you can't access if you travel with their partners. Very complicated rules that an alliance makes easier. What QF does, whether we like it or not, it's to incentive people to book through them. Now, that we decide to take a QF vs an alliance code, that's a different thing.

You do realise, if Cathay and Qantas could co-operate in the manner you describe (metal neutral), in a market where there is minimal competition, the likely outcome is increased airfares. Not to mention that getting it past the regulators is a hard sell.

Horses for courses. My flying is to the US, UK, SIN and HK. All places where OW has a good coverage and meets my needs. I enjoy the Dubai lounges but not much point building up status with them as there is not much point my flying from Sydney to LAX via Dubai.

I have booked MH for a series of flights over Christmas. I checked the QF website calculator and couldn't believe the tiny 30 SC's out of Australia to KUL!! However, outside KUL to internal locations - the SC's jump up eg: BKK>KUL was like 40 or 60 for a short flight. For the price we paid - its more earning that paying full Y class between MEL>SYD>MEL!! Yes its a lot of flying but we both will come back with even status of 300 SC's. Also MH's J price was fantastic.

I suspect a system generated random date that needs to be fixed sometime.
As there has been no Qantas announcement, or verification by calling them, all conjecture at this stage.
