Qantas Frequent Flyer are introducing a partner earn rate specifically for partner flights between Dubai and Doha and New Zealand. The new earning rates, effective from 1 September, 2016 are designed to account for newly introduced/announced flights by Emirates and Qatar.
At present, there is no specific table for flights between Dubai and Doha and New Zealand. As a result, the earn rates for the routes are defined in the catch all distance based rates.
The current earning rates, and the new route specific earn are show in the table below. While the changes do not affect the number of points that will be earned when flying the route, they will effect the Status Credit earn rate.
|Travel Class||Current Distance Based
(Greater than 6.500 miles)
|Doha & Dubai – New Zealand
(Effective 1 September, 2016)
|Points||Status Credits||Points||Status Credits|
While this will not affect travel on Emiarates flights (as Status Credits are not earned on Emirates flight numbers), it represents a halving of the Status Credits that may be earned when travelling on the forthcoming Qatar flight between Doha and Auckland.
