I have a trip on Qantas on Sat from HKG - CNS and returning SYD - HKG next week. I tried calling Qantas to put my CPlus number in but was told that they couldn't do anything because they said name does not match !!???! So I have to mail the tickets and boarding passes which I really don't like to do as I hav to wait and wait to see whether miles are credited. This also mean I will be travelling tomorrow with no OneWorld status!!
Have anyone had the same thing happened to them? I will try to call back to Canada EP desk and see whether anything could be done.
Empress - it all falls down to HOW the name was programmed into QANTAS' system when all this OneWorld thing began.
QANTAS' programmers could have misspelt your name or alternated your middle name or something like that. My cousin, had his middle initials switched around to his first name (Chinese name) and that caused major problems on his OneWorld RTW ticket because every other OW airline recognised the name and status except QANTAS!
The best bet is to ask QANTAS how your name is spelt by giving them your CPLUS number first - they might deny it , but yes, you can check name based on CPLUS number!
Otherwise, just show your card at check-in ! It works that way.
While EP desk never did return my call, this is the reason I discovered:
The name on the ticket matches the name on the passport with my middle name spelled out while the CPlus account only have the first letter of the middle name. I never thought this was a problem as this is the first time since I joined CPlus in 92 that they can't get my number in.
