Qantas offers Frequent Flyers status extension until 2023

Qantas has announced new plans to help top-tiered Frequent Flyers retain elite membership status by extending status support for members who are facing a possible tier downgrade between now and June 2022.

How it works

Australian and New Zealand-based Frequent Flyers (Silver and above) with a membership year ending in or before June 2022 will be able to maintain their status for another year by booking an eligible flight prior to their membership year-end, for travel until June 2022.

Qantas Frequent Flyer will also roll over eligible Status Credits that members earned this year into their new membership year.

There are five membership levels in Qantas Frequent Flyer from Bronze up to Platinum One. The higher the tier, the more member benefits.

With Australia’s international border still closed for now and domestic lockdowns currently making it challenging for members to earn the required Status Credits to retain their tier level, Qantas Frequent Flyers will no doubt be reassured with this new retention lifeline.

  1. Just a thought on what I feel disappointed about. I had enough flights booked, intentionally booking higher class seats ( obviously paying more for them ) in order to reach the platinum level of frequent flyers! I was so looking forward to moving up from gold, I only ever fly Qantas. I actually knew that it would mean from here on in, I would need to book business class flights or thereabouts in order to retain that status. I was willing to make that choice. With all of my impending flights cancelled, I will then remain on the gold level hopefully. I wish they would honour the amount spent, the number of flights and the goodwill involved in paying more and welcome me as someone who they could make money from into the future. Additionally, as they cancelled my flights, I could have opted for a full refund but instead took the credits… I’m certain this would benefit Qantas economically. Frustrating that they don’t show me the same loyalty that I show the. I feel almost like switching. Thanks

  2. I’m delighted to hear that Qantas has plans to help top-tiered Frequent Flyers retain elite membership status! This is great as I would be flying right now if I could…really thrilled that you’re considering extending status support for members who are facing a possible tier downgrade between now and June 2022. Keep up the innovative ideas – we will be back!
