We have been trying for the last 6 weeks to claim points for Qantas Business Class International flights!
These were flights between the UK and Australia - 5 flights all together at a cost of more than $20,000
I have wasted hour upon hour on frustrating calls with the Manila call centre and they are useless... Since Qantas moved to this off shore facility, what was once seamless has now become a nightmare.
They either have system errors or are just not managing to deal with their new role. Such a pity that we have abandoned the call centres (Tassie & NZ) that were professional to deal with.

You can easily claim points online without dealing with the call centre.

$4k per person plus points .... You are doing something wrong here. As other have said use the Qantas website and select classic rewards. You may also find it easier to fly into europe rather than the UK as it will open up more options from OW partners

Thanks for all the suggestions. We did try claiming point on-line but they were also rejected as (apparently) the call centre had no corresponding record of us taking these flights ... it even showed up on my statement as a rejected claim, So another 2 hours on the line to the call centre ... the entire process was extremely frustrating.
Also wrote a letter to Olivia Wirth - CEO Qantas Loyalty ... surprisingly, I didn't even get a response !

Try emailing a copy of your boarding passes to [email protected], with a description of the other efforts you have taken to have the points credited. If that fails, I would enlist the support of the Airline Customer Advocate (http://www.airlinecustomeradvocate.com.au).

I tried claiming points on line for a Finnair flight in Biz class and it just came back invalid sector! Total rubbish and no recourse to anyone. The non in-flight service of Qantas has virtually disappeared in last 5+years.
