• Upfront I will say I am a former airline employee who had to deal on a daily basis with paxs who purchased the lowest fare possible but wanted all the flexibility of the higher fares! When a bkg is made it gives the person making the bkg all the fare rules of the fare they are purchasing. Unfort...

  • Remember you need to be ticketed before it will allow the upgrade as well

  • Did Fcl from Zurich to Melbourne via DXB last year just because once in my life I wanted to experience it. Used FF points. It was a night flight from ZRH so a bit wasted although they served 1968 Don Perignon which was nice...only had one glass though as not a big drinker! The second leg was ...

  • as an ex employee who is eligible for J if available, I now only book J using FF points because these days your rarely get upgraded due to so many pax using points. The complaint problems mentioned here would be solved if they just did away with upgrades using points and if you want business you...

  • worked at QF res and  CD was not available on QF services (metal) or codeshare services on EK to Asian ports even though EK allowed for CD on their own services.  Every now and then we saw,  that if you were redirected to the EK website after making your bkg on QF online,(and provi...
