Am flying to Perth on Thursday on an economy saver = 20, and returning on Saturday, also 20. My Anniversary is 31 JUL. That will bring my total to 680. What would be the best (cheapest way) to go about it? Although I have no more bookings listed after Perth trip, I need to be in Boston next year (The word "need" is a serious one.) My goal is to fly to Tel Aviv (where THE world expert on the genetic cause of my rare disability conducts his research,) followed by 2-3 weeks in Europe, then off to Boston, NY then back to Melb. If I have the Gold status I would be highly inclined to fly QF and partner airlines where possible as maintaining Gold would be a goal. I will be 20 SC's short of gold come Saturday night. Also, my Qantas Club membership expires towards the end of June. Should I just do a status run to Adelaide or Launceston for (approx) $200? OR is there/could there be a way of kindly speaking to QF and asking if they will award me Gold Status? (I have had a LOT of cancelled flights, not to mention flights that have been rerouted and or rescheduled last minute (All QF.) Plus I was stuck in J last week on VH-EGL (I think) The LAST 330 to have a really POOR J class. (Note that the flight to NZ was supposed to be in the latest J class but that was changed last minute too.) Is it worth a crack?
What do you guys think?
Thanks so much!
