Qantas Non-rev Question

Mon Jun 21, 2004 6:12 am

Is there a special line for non-revs to list and check availability in the US for QF flights?

Also does QF upgrade non-rev passengers?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Cant say if QF have special number in USA in the UK there appears to be one...One important thing when listing on QF you have to advise them your ticket number...they wont list you without that and your rebate category
Ive been upgraded on Oz domestic...though I was using a ticket with a oneworld rebate

As a rule, QF does not upgrade non-revs (even QF staff). They have been known to upgrade from Economy forward (meaning they put the last few non-revs in J, when Y class fills up).

Their number in Australia is 13-13-13. I called from here (US) to list SYDCNSSYD on QF but they told me to just go to the airport since it was domestic Aus?! Then, of course the airport told me I should've been listed. They gave me a sheet with their worldwide numbers for Non-revs...but I lost it, sorry. As aforementioned, they don't upgrade non-revs, but their coach meals were pretty good.

Qantas is so nice to non-revs! I love that airline. The agents have always treated me just like a regular PAX. And about a year ago I was flying to LAX from AUK and they put me in a J/C seat. I still ate a Y/C meal, but who cares?!? The seat was so much nicer.

Luckily, I've been able to return the favor several times when I've had QF non-revs onboard. I have a lot of respect for QF staff.
