QANTAS: Double Status Credits and 5,000 points if you book to New Zealand between 10 and 15 May 2021

QANTAS: Double Status Credits and 5,000 points if you book to New Zealand between 10 and 15 May 2021

Qantas sure knows how to market. Just as they finish a slightly extended half price sale for airfares to New Zealand, they now offer a double status credits and additional points deal. The catch is, you have to pay ‘full’ price for the priviledge.

I booked return airfares between Sydney and two New Zealand ports last week during the special ‘half’ price deal last week, for a little over AU$1,000 per person in July.

Double the price and double the status credits

Those same fares now come in at double the price, but with the additional status credits and points.

Depending on how you look at it – you win/lose under both deals. You will almost never get an opportunity to book at half price and get double status credits in my experience. That would be akin to capturing a unicorn.

If you want to get in on this deal, book now, or at least before 15 May. Your travel will need to be between May 17 2021 and 28 February 2022 – anyone for the Bay of Islands in summer?

What you need to do

First up register. Do it by 11.59 pm EST on Saturday 15 May at the absolute latest. Then book a Qantas-operated flight with a QF flight number (NOT Jetstar) to/from New Zealand between 17 May 2021 to  28 February 2022.

This is another timely reminder to wear your seatbelt when seated. Holding you close to your seat will protect you from the sort of injuries sustained on this flight, when unsecured passengers flew to the ceiling of the aircraft, and then came crashing down once the ‘drop’ ceased.

The hope will be that this is an anomaly – a ‘freak accident’ in casual parlance. If it is a systemic error either mechanical or electronic, then this is a larger concern for the airlines that fly Boeing Dreamliner 787 aircraft. Let’s hope it isn’t. If it is, it will pile on the woes to Boeing’s existing stack.

Maybe its time to book that Milford track walk?
