Trying to contact Qantas to assist with a booking I can't complete online and each time I call the wait time is >1 hour. I haven't been offered a call back when an agent becomes free - has this service been discontinued? It used to be a useful tool instead of having to hold.

I think the call centre is just over loaded with calls atm. I spent around 5 hrs on Saturday rescheduling some rtw itineraries and wasn't offered a call back but in the current environment I suspect I wasn't the only one rescheduling.

They definitely haven't for Gold/Platinum, tho it may take a couple of tries before they initiate the offer...
Must be inconsistent in that case - I tried four times (gold) but was not offered a call back. In the end I got through to someone using the chat function in the app. Although it took two hours before the chat was initiated it was better than holding. Worth noting this was on Sunday / Monday before Tuesday's announcement which no doubt would have led to a greater influx of calls.

Called late last week I wasn't offered the Call Back option thankfully only on hold for about 30 minutes.

Several weeks ago I was given no option but to use the Call Back "option". They still have not called back !

Have some affected flights. Called the Platinum number and got the message delays in excess of 2 hours. Also noted that Qantas will call passengers, so waiting for the calls.

I suspect it'll be long wait times for the next few weeks given such a large number of flight changes. The change in flight schedules must affect somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000 passengers
