Qantas promised and Qantas delivered. The Australian carrier has just released a glut of award space, including multiple seats in premium cabins on key longhaul routes.
Qantas Premium Cabin Award Space Released
Facing backlash over its record profits, Qantas promised to release tens of thousands of award seats on Friday, February 24, 2023 at 11:00 AM Sydney time. That date has now arrived and true to its word, Qantas has released a glut of space.
Use the British Airways award search tool to locate space. Then, call American Airlines or Alaska Airlines to book it (the space does not show up online in premium cabins).
I’m seeing two first class seats and up to four business class seats on many flights: this is very rare on Qantas.
I’ve managed to book myself on a round-trip journey from Los Angles in late summer (winter down under) that will give me an opportunity to review multiple products. I’m quite looking forward to the trip.
Qantas is notoriously stingy with award space, but has released a generous allotment of award seats across all four cabins of service for travel next July and beyond.
This space is going FAST (really fast), so if you want seats, drop everything and deal with this now.
