"Thanks all. Based on the above, I am reading that:-SYD to KUL - against a business fare I will earn status credits at economy rate.KUL to MAA - against a business fare I will earn status credit at business rate. I am asking the question as this trip should push me to Platinum status with QF. I ..."
"Hi all,Was just trying to look up the number of status points for a up coming trip to India. I was looking at flying MH. For some reason, the Qantas frequent flyer calculator will only let me look up MH Economy on Syd-Kul sector, but business on the KUL to India sector. Anyone know why?Cheers."
"I have had lots of issues and delays getting SC and Points. It seems to take forever with VA intl flights, but when it comes to DL and SQ flights, I get them within a few days. The worse is EY, where I never seem to get the right points or SC. It can be frustrating, and the Velocity team have ..."
"This is becoming a pain. I live in the south eastern suburbs of Sydney, and it has happened to me twice in the last 3 months. The User driver has pulled up and seen my luggage, has cancelled the trip and driven off. This use to happen to me before Uber started with Taxis (Especially when get..."
"Im QF Silver, and the check in agent told me last month I should be able to access the lounge in Dubai but not Sydney. My connection did not allow enough enough time for me to check this out. However, I cannot imagine QF Silver would get lounge access in Dubai (I belive EK Silver members can ac..."
"For those of us who have to travel down the back of the plane, the main issue I have with VA (I am VA Platinum) is travelling with SQ. (1) If I am on a VA ticket, I cannot choose my seating when on SQ aircraft. (2) If the lounge is not a SQ run Silverkris lounge eg Star group lounge, there is no..."
"Either is great, but if you have VA platinum I would defiantly go with Eithad. In addtion, Eithad has the later departure out of Sydney / Brisbane / Melbourne which gets into London just after lunch, which generally allows you to check straight into your hotel upon arrival (with SQ, unless you o..."
"I used the Strata lounge yesterday (4pm flight from AKL). I was travelling Air NZ Premium with a VA Platinum status. The NZ lounge was busy so I used my priority pass access to use the Starta which almost empty. I have to say, as a first time use, I really liked it, and was very happy with the ..."
"I would like to see SQ allow seat selection on VA issued tickets, along with better lounge access across the entire SQ network (Where SQ is not operating the lounge, velocity gold/platinum do not have access). The tie up with Delta is sensational and never had any issues, nor with Eithad (it can..."
"Hi all - quick question, when I book a Qantas flight on American Airlines, am I able to go onto the American Airlines site to sort my seating using my QF PNR? I know I can do this on QF ticketed flights on EK aircraft. Cheers"
"Had am issue travelling to Sydney Airport from Botany. I was out the front waiting for the driver, saw the car coming down the street. As the driver approached and I assume saw my luggage, just kept driving and cancelled the trip on the app. Very frustrating, I did pass the details onto Uber."
"Hi - not sure it will make a difference. You will still need to collect your bags and clear customs in Melbourne, and then check in to the VA flight. I personally would not bother."
"Hi all, booked and paid for a flight on MH from Sydney to Hyderabad on 27th August for a work trip. Just received a email from Malaysia airlines that MH140 has been cancelled on the 27th, and that I am now re booked on MH122 leaving Sydney on the 26th August, leaving me with a transit of ..."
