Qantas Frequent Flyer has launched (yet again) the very popular double status credit offer for flights flown February 25 – August 31, 2019.
Members must book eligible Qantas marketed and operated flights between February 18 – 22. You must also remember to register for this offer.
You can access this offer on Qantas website here.
There is no limit on number of status credits one can earn from this offer. The flights must be both marketed and operated by Qantas.
I guess that Virgin Australia soon will launch a similar offer (they tend to have these hand in hand). Good for those travelers that can plan their travels in advance and credit their Qantas flights to QF’s own program.
