QANTAS: Vaccine App Competition leak

QANTAS: Vaccine App Competition leak

Qantas has been talking of incentives for vaccinated passengers for some time.

When I was writing a previous article on the Qantas staff survey ‘No Jab, No fly‘, I had reason to search for ‘vaccine promotion’ on the Qantas website, and amongst the results returned, I found those highlighted below which looks very like draft T&C’s for that future competition.

8 or 10 winners?

ET is also reporting Joyce confirming the competition, with the one change, that they are reporting 10 prizes, rather than the 8 documented in the T&C related documents below.

Prize specifics

OK, there are quite a few ‘xxxx’s’, but it does outline the prizes which are:

  • 8 x One year’s worth of free domestic flights on Qantas and Jetstar for a family of 4. Value upto AU$40,000
  • 1 x million Accor Points
  • A winner to be drawn from each state and territory

The discrepancy between 10 quoted in the ET article and the 8 outlined in the T&C’s might be that there are an additional 2 prizes of Accor Points.

ET quotes Alan Joyce as saying:

“You could fly to New York every week, to London every other week,”

Which is not quite accurate if the AU$40,000 limit outlined in the T&C’s is accurate.

Elsewhere on the Qantas website, we found this, which echos the same conditions:

In the above T&C’s there is no mention of the proposed secondary prizes of bonus points and status credits mentioned in ET’s article. However, given these appear to be drafts – that could change.

We also found a ‘How To’ find your vaccination digital certificate – or as I would call it, a COVID-19 Passport (haters going to hate!)

2PAXfly Takeout

The aviation industry has a difficult road ahead when it comes to sustainability. It’s going to require a relative revolution in technology, with ‘electric planes’ or hydrogen planes, or some form of jet engine that doesn’t require a carbon based fuel. And that is going to require the development of an alternative to jet engines probably.

It’s a big ask. It will take time to develop.

This move to home grown and manufactured SAF is a first step – maybe even a baby step in a very long road of innovation. In the long run, US$200 million won’t even touch the sides.

Would I like AU$40,000 worth of airfares from Qantas – or nearly three return flights to the USA in Business?

You bet I would! And I’m vaccinated, and I have a digital certificate.

Bring it on Alan!
