QFlyer Query

By mspcooper | Mar 12, 2019, 02:51 PM
I found out QFlyer has RTW airfares for under $6000 via HEL (OW all the way). However, i cannot see this fare anywhere except them, even my travel agent could not get it.
Question: Is QFlyer legit? Has anyone used them before?

QFlyer is part of a group in Adelaide that includes Roundabout Travel, and Flatbeds. Roundabout is promoting a Finnair RTW for $5672 via Nth America, so you could check it out with them.

I haven’t used them, so sorry, can’t answer your question if legit! But I often refer to their website to checkout prevailing deals. Am pretty sure the fare structure on the cheap deals with QF or AY sectors is “I”, which is a discounted business fare, with very limited seat allocation per flight.

From my agent I have had a Star Alliance RTW for $6,600, using Thai/Austrian/Lufthansa/Air New Zealand via South America. Usually it’s a bit cheaper via Nth America, so $6,000 isn’t out of the ballpark.

QFlyer definitely legit. Have used myself more than once (as have friends), and always been completely happy with the service.

I used Qflyer in 2016 for a Finnair RTW fare and their service was exceptional. You deal with the same person throughout the booking process and we received our e-tickets promptly.

We were able to cherry-pick flights to assist with QFF earning (ie use the daily QF JFK-LAX flight and use QF code on the AA LAX-HNL leg.)

Not that I have been there - but they (along with their parent brand - Roundabout Travel) have a bricks-and-mortar office in Adelaide that you can visit by appointment.

Highly recommended!

Great to hear. How come these deals are not accessible by other agents??

I too have used QFlyer on a number of occasions and found them to be very helpful and thorough professionals. I would recommend them in a heartbeat! I support the comments of Ewangiles and Jchakera above. QFlyer are focussed on maximising your QFF Status, as such they are very good at making sure you get every point and status credit out of every flight.

I am currently In Helsinki in a ticket bought through QFlyer. They provide excellent service. My in-laws use them for their annual Round the Wod trip.

I recommend

It may be complete coincidence. In which case I apologise. But I always get a little nervous when at least two happy cheerleaders for this company are first time ever posters. And they just happen to be big fans of Qflyer. They may be genuine. But I would certainly treat that with the appropriate degree of caution.

Apology accepted.
Sad to hear such a degree of skepticism, but I guess that reaffirms why it took me a long time to decide to post on this (or any internet) forum. Much better just to read the articles in the future.
