"On rare occasions QF may do promotions allowing for upgrade requests to be made for normally non-upgradable fares. However where your employer books your fares taking advantage of such a promo would be difficult.Book upgradable fares or if you can’t or won’t be content to know you..."
"Originally Posted by AsiaBizTraveller This is great news, AusBT already has the best content on CX and SQ which appeals heavily to me, bring on more from around the world! David, does this mean you will be hiring writers based in Asia? See the FAQ linked to in the opening post of the thread. Tha..."
"For me no Sale fares would be a down sell. If I’m not buying Business Sale fares I’m not going to stretch to getting Business Saver or Flex fares and would probably go for Flex Economy and try for an upgrade if I couldn’t find Business classic reward seats."
"Originally Posted by Red Cee Would like to see aero bridges. Hobart’s Weather can be quite unpleasant when walking in the rain. That would be nice but unfortunately from the news articles I've read aerobridges aren't planned."
"420 SC is 3% of the total needed for LifeTime Gold. So it would certainly help with progressing towards that goal but you would need to do a lot of other travel to get there."
"Furthermore QANTAS Gold provides lounge access in more situations than QANTAS Club would. As a QF Gold Member one could fly BA economy on a BA flight number and get lounge access whereas as a QANTAS Club member one wouldn’t."

"People used to fly on QF9 MEL-DXB-LHR for the higher upgrade chance and the evening departure out of MEL suited some of them better too.Now that MEL-SIN-LHR involves connecting to QF1 in SIN the upgrade chances would be pretty bad flying from MEL too. "
"Are you sure that it was DSC? 50% bonus offers go out targeted, though sometimes DSC does too.QF does do targeted offers sometimes and sometimes offers open to everyone. They do like to change up the dates from year to year so that you can't anticipate exactly when the offers are going to land. I..."
"It seems to me that you booked MEL-SYD-CNS which earns less than what you've been rebooked onto MEL-BNE-CNS so I don't think that 'original routing credit' would help.Wait and see what credits to your QFF activity statement."
