• I think the lifetime status is a good idea. And especially for Australian travellers who frequently fly to New Zealand. I believe it will increase 'pressure' (for better words) on Australian based flyers to remain loyal or switch loyalty to Air New Zealand. With the Qantas tie-up with Air New Zea...

  • I think the main point to remember is Qantas has been a successful carrier with a successful frequent flyer program with many years behind it and a take up of half Australia's population. Air Canada has not been successful and neither has its AeroPlan program. And the Velocity Program, I don...

  • Qantas, what a beaut airline. And the Qantas 747, an aircraft so linked to the success of Qantas. I have been on many of them. I was so happy the first 747-400 went to HARS. And my partner and I have been to see it. Did the most comprehensive tour. Best $400 I spent. I so hope Qantas put on a fin...

I remember calling Telstra actually to see if they would match it and they wouldn't. Telstra didn't deserve my business. I used to buy a SIM ...

  • How about calling the Qantas Frequent Flyer team? You'll get an answer for sure.

  • Impossible to contact Qantas

    Only about two months ago I read articles that Qantas has not committed to extending the Hobart Call Centre beyond 2021 if I recall correctly. Very sad.
