I find it hilarious that Qantas still charge to join their frequent flyer programme. The only airline in the world to do so?

There are many FFPs that you have to pay to join, such as Cathay's Marco Polo...

Asia Miles is free which is the FFP.

Marco Polo is the status / loyalty program.

Yes but what's even more hilarious is that some people actually pay the fee.

It is bizarre that Qantas charges for a mediocre (terrible?) frequent flyer program.

Must say I agree most airline programs cost nothing to join.
