"Originally Posted by Neil R Thanks. What’s the point of an alliance? So one needs to fly to India on CX and and endure a all day layover In HKG .... Thanks again 😁 Hello Neil R, if it works for you (time wise and financially) you could look at the option of flying to Singapore fro..."
"Re what Brandon Loo mentioned - it happened to me once, my MEL-SYD on (DE/Y) was cancelled and I was routed through Hobart (MEL-HBA-SYD). I got an upgrade to J (for both legs) and also got additional 10 SC as part of the route change. This happened after I went to the airport and tried to do a ki..."

"Originally Posted by Lost_in_SIN Given you only earn double status credits on QF I would suggest taking an indirect flight to Singapore (SYD - BNE/MEL-SIN) and then pick up a bargain Singapore to Chennai (via KL) business class ticket on Malaysia Airlines as a separate ticket. There are usually ..."
"Originally Posted by jch Qantas has some cheap J to Honolulu which could be used for a quick holiday from the east coast Thanks for your suggestion Jch., but I'm on an Indian passport and would need a visa to travel to HNL. Not really keen to do that ATM."
"Originally Posted by russell You are assuming there will be one.....There is every chance they wont do one this year if their needs were met during the last couple of years worth. Fair point, Russell. Hope QF does a DSC very soon"
"Originally Posted by silvyvc Will need to wait to check when's the next DSC promo, but if you fly Y I would suggest to fly indirect. For example, SYD-BNE/MEL-SIN or HKG, then SIN or HKG-MAA. (unsure whether there would be a connection from SIN-MAA on Oneworld, hence also suggesting HKG).Just be m..."
"Hey djtech, I'm sure you'd have considered the Double SC from VA running ATM and also you'd have analysed which airline would take you closer to the next FF tierI'd also suggest using VA, better J product and the domestic connection/stopover could mean more SC's earnedAnd as H2SO4 pointed out, up..."
"Dear fellow members,I'm a QF Gold (from last year) and I'm planning to do a few overseas trips this year. Specifically, I'll be flying to Chennai (MAA) in India from Sydney (SYD) at least 3 times in 2019I'm waiting for the DSC from Qantas to be released so that I can book my flights and make the ..."
"I'm looking forward to the DSC too ... have got some travel plans sorted, ready to book.I have bookmarked AusBT and Qantas websites and hit the refresh button twice a day (at least) in the hopes of seeing the DSC appear "
"Re air con - I wouldn’t think so. I did a trip to Queenstown in April a few years back and it was perfect. It wasn’t too cold and the temperatures were around the 15-20 degree Celsius mark. So I think you would be fine in a non aircon room. Re heating - depends on personal preferenc..."
"Originally Posted by sgb Yes standards are indeed falling, my brother is a pilot with QF and says the thongs and shorts brigade have taken over, it's a miracle one of the last row mob didn't claim your overhead locker on their way through before you arrived, that often happens, saves them carryi..."
