• I got a 747 Heathrow to LA return in Jan this year, and it was quite enjoyable, although they are noisy compared with the a350's/787's etc.was refurbished business class, rather than the old versions.Great feeling to have had that opportunity given now that it is difficult to find many carriers f...

  • Well, being based in UK, and HQ in Singapore, it hasn't been easy not traveling to our HQ. With Qantas also not flying, its been even worse to keep my PFF status. the credits are great, thanks Qantas, but the QF 4 flights I need to take I am not sure how I shall do that.

  • Yes, it is going to be difficult to maintain my Platinum status with the 4 QF flights. I am based in UK but work is HQ'd out of HK and Sing. I would normally fly QF to Sing, then around the region with Cathay, back to London with QF. So I would easily pick up at least 10-12 plus QF flights per y...

  • Factually, Australia was founded in 1788, so adding 200 years means the date should be 1988, not 1970. Loved the retro lounge and would welcome a mock up somewhere, where we could come and enjoy.

  • That would be great news, as I travel to singapore then up to HK every 3 weeks from London, so means I am able to use QFP on CX flights.

  • Thanks for the comments. thus far. As I live in the UK, that is not the case for the retention. see below;The airline this week announced that its Qantas Frequent Flyer members based in Australia and New Zealand would be eligible to retain their current Silver, Gold, Platinum or Platinum One ...

  • Having received the latest email from Qantas today, in regard to Qantas status retention, yet again us Qantas folks overseas are left high and dry. We have very little ability to secure a retention of our status, as we can't fly any international QF flights, and to book and actually undertake a ...

  • Bumped Up to Platinum Early

    Wish Qantas would do the same. Have been platinum for years, and for the first time was close to P1, asked the question and was told 'nope', even though I had flights booked under the double status credits london to singapore return, which would have pushed me over, but had to cancel due to Covi...

  • No, there was no cherry on top. When I book PE, I ask for a points upgrade immediately. And have had many a time been advised (very late by Q like, 5 hours before) that the upgrade wasn't granted, then when I turn up at the airport, I get the upgrade. What I tend to do is look at the availabil...

  • Just landed another upgrade back to London this afternoon, PE to Bus. nice to lie down after 2 weeks working in Asia.
