You can transfer to her QF account from your Amex, if she's an AU on your account.

Try to find anyone in the family with same last name and transfer from their Amex to her QF account, Amex to QF only last name need to match.

Any Qantas pros here that can answer a quick (maybe silly) Q?

I am trying to book a flight from TLV-JFK and pricing is seemingly changing whilst in the cart

It shows 37,800 + 55gbp and then hops to 50,900 and 234gbp when I head to checkout..?





I'm having the same issue.
Trying to book 3 pax in premium econ TLV-MIA.
Price is 81,800 + £57 ea. Total - 245,400 pts + £171.
After I add to cart it jumps up to 286,800 pts + £1,424.70.

Any ideas what's going on?

I had the same experience with the tlv jfk flight that I was trying to book. Once I transferred in the points to Qantas it stopped showing the higher amount in the cart. I'm assuming that it only shows that amount when you don't have enough points in your account so you should be fine transferring in the points and booking with the lower fare.

I had the required points in my account.
Maybe because I had just transferred them in..
I checked again now 24 hours later and it's now showing the correct pricing all the way thru..

Is there a way to transfer Citi Thank You Points to Quantas to book EL AL to Israel? Is this a decent value or is there a better way to transfer points to Delta partners for JFK-TLV?

Booked an elal ticket with qantas miles over a week ago, CDG to TLV. When I try to add the trip to my ELAL app it says it is not yet ticketed and can't be added. Does it typically take this long? (On Qantas website status is "confirmed" and on the confirmation email from qantas there are ticket numbers for each passenger...)

Does this mean that there will not be any fuel charges at checkout?
I don't want to transfer the points and then find out...

I undertsand that, but I don't want to transfer my amex or capital one points and then find out that I need to pay $400 in taxes and fees....
Would anyone know "about" how much money Qantas charges in addition to the 50,000 points for a roundtrip direct flight on AA from the US to Europe?
I"m looking for an estimated amount...
