Exactly. That is why the title is Minimum QF Connect Times. I am not especially interested in Air Tahiti Nui connect times. I just would like to know what MCT I can request to have ticketed and know that my bags and I will be looked after and eventually get to my destination if I miss the connection. I appreciate the risk on my part of being much later getting to my destination than I hoped.

Yet the times I have been given for AKL and SYD are quite different both for Air Tahiti Nui and for QF, according to an agent. Reasonably, at least to me, simpler terminals and easier transfers for people and baggage between International and Domestic should make a difference in the time needed for people and their baggage to make another flight.

Anyone have further thoughts on this? QF PS? SG? WP?

Perhaps someone with access to a GDS can confirm whether the MCT for SYD and AKL listed above are correct for ticketing and whether MCT varies with elite status.
