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!)

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.

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!
