Hey fellow frequent fliers,
Sorry if this is a bit of a novice Q. For the first ever time, I am flying Jetstar (LOL). I'm flying AKL-BNE (QF metal, ticket) and then onwards BNE-CNS 3h later (JQ metal, same QF ticket w/ QF flight number). I guess one of the great advantages was timing, otherwise, I hope I actually get to Cairns haha.
Having never flown JQ, let alone on the same ticket; I wondered if anyone had done this before? Can I expect to be checked-in for the JQ sector back in Auckland? I realise I need to collect bags and send them through quarantine as entering Australia in Brisbane. Does one earn the same status credits and FF points as though it were a usual Qantas service (I assume so, but assumptions aren't always a great idea haha). Also I did try logging into the Jetstar website to preselect seats (I rang Jetstar to ascertain the Jetstar reservation number) but it gave me some strange error when I clicked on "select seats." Does anyone have experience with this?
Cheers team x

Cheers, appreciate the helpful response x

I also put my QF booking reference straight into manage my booking on the Jetstar website. Did it 2 weeks ago off a QF booked, ticketed but Jetstar operated flight and had 1C up and 1D back on both my flights, plus meal and full points/SC.
Only difference for you is that I flew 3K Jetstar Asia rather than JQ Jetstar Australia. Perhaps that's why you couldn't do the same?
