• 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.

  • I have been LTG for probably 10 years, and platinum in a row for probably 15 of the last 20 years. Once I get to Platinum, i switch to using Singapore on my LHR-SGP-LHR 3 weekly flights, so I get status with star alliance.there is no real incentive for me to use qantas after I retain platinum, a...

  • Nick I am with you, tank tops, flip flops and load of kids. I use the CX F lounge all the time now, much quieter, better food. Look forward to seeing what the QF Singapore F lounge will be like when it opens next month!!

What I tend to do is look at the availabil...

  • I travel each 4 weeks, LHR-SIN-LHR on QF2/1 and book Premium Economy. I use my points to upgrade each way, and so far, have probably been upgraded 70% of the time. I have never seen on these flights empty business classes seats, probably because these flights are heavily booked as part of the K...

  • I certainly checked out the T&C's and yes, they must be only Qantas flights, no QF codeshare, as they don't count, ie Emirates flight with a QF number won't earn double points.Fine print below;Status Credits will not be earned on some fare types and booking classes including Classic Flight ...

  • You just missed one in November. Really worthwhile, I did a London/Singapore/London return in Business and secured over 600 points. so in effect do two of those trips a year under the DP regime, and you secure platinum.
