We’ve only been on two Qantas flights in each of our respective lives. Both of them took place during our trip to Australia with Adventures by Disney. I didn’t have a Qantas account at the time, however, I did try to get retro credit for the flights with one of their partners (I think it was American). Besides that, I had absolutely zero interest in crediting flights to or redeeming awards with Qantas’ Frequent Flyer program.
Oh, just so you know, I’m not being lazy. The real name of Qantas’ frequent flyer program is “Qantas Frequent Flyer.” I’m going to make Cliff Notes-style review of the plan and the things you should know about.
If there’s a single easier way to earn airline miles without flying on an airplane than signing up for a dining program, I’m not aware of it. For those of you who still don’t know about these programs, I’ll provide some information about them, links to their respective websites and what you’ll get to sign up and how much you’ll earn down the line.
The best thing about a dining program is that it’s truly a set it and forget it type of thing. Sure, there are ways to maximize your earnings that I’ll touch on but this is more just a starter (or reminder) for everyone on all the different programs that are out there.
Regardless of that number, just know you’re not getting on the plane when the boarding process starts unless you’re a super-elite frequent flyer or a disabled passenger in a wheelchair. The passengers with some sort of loyalty with the airline or one of their partners and the passengers who paid for first-class will go next. Why not stay seated until your group (or at least the one right before it is called) cause you’re gonna have a long wait just to have your ticket scanned and all you’re going to is stand on the jet bridge for a while before getting on the plane.
Just be patient and don’t be like the people in this video from JetBlue
I know watching the news stories about the devastation in the Bahamas caused by Hurricane Dorian can make you feel helpless. After a while, you just feel numb and you want to do something, do anything, but don’t know how you can help.
