Air France - QANTAS resumes codeshare partnership from July 2018

So more options to Paris and can avoid the sand pit. QF get pax on their own aircraft for part of the route, instead of all on EK.

Air France and Qantas next month is resuming reciprocal codeshare partnership, announced in May 2018. Reservation for planned codeshare service commencing on 20 JUL 18, opened since last week. Planned codeshare routes include the following

<snip>
Qantas and Air France customers will now have more options to travel between Europe and Australia via Asia following a renewed codeshare agreement between the two carriers. (2)

Available for booking from 5 June for travel from 20 July 2018, Air France will add its code to Qantas flights between Hong Kong and Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane and between Singapore and Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.

Air France customers will also be able to access codeshare services from Sydney to five cities on the Australian airline’s domestic network; Canberra, Hobart, Adelaide, Cairns and Darwin

Under the reciprocal deal, Qantas will add its code to flights operated by Air France between Singapore and Hong Kong and Paris-Charles de Gaulle, as a continuation of flights from Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth

And the old AF-QF thread QF/EK agreement --> end of AF/QF code-share where this was posted.

Just done a dummy Y booking for Sep, the QF Codeshares on EK are still significantly cheaper than either the QF/BA or QF/AF options provided for the same day.

I note that AF Lounge access is provided at CDG and SIN, has anyone seen whether other status benefits are supposedly provided: Check-in, PB and Baggage Allowances?

Regards,

BD

Which lounge do you get in HKG - the CX first class Wing/Pier, or whatever SkyTeam puts forth?

Per press release:

Air France eligible customers(3) will also be able to access Qantas lounges in Hong Kong, Singapore and Australia, as well as Qantas eligible customers to Air France lounges in Paris, Hong Kong and Singapore.

Not sure if this means you get to choose in each of the ports or whether you need to go to the one you’re directed to.

This is largely motivated by the need to fill all the extra AU-SIN capacity that now exists.

QF shouldn't be debasing its brand by partnering with an unreliable third world carrier like AF though.

I wasn't aware that France had left Europe and was now part of Asia, Africa, or Latin America

I have found Air France to be a decent airline

I don't think there are any plans (and no routes cited here https://www.routesonline.com/news/38...rom-july-2018/ ) for QF codeshares on AF intra-EU ... ?

You will not be able to book a standalone QF codeshare AF operated flight to Heidelberg from LHR /LGW flight. QF will not have traffic rights.
QF have UK codeshares with BA, but they cannot be booked as standalone flights.
Need to be a tag on to a long haul or specific destination like Paris from Oz. But rules do vary a little.
With codeshare normal practise is only some nominated flights as codeshares and not all flights of that airline

So you will not be able to get QF SC's on an Eu short haul route.
As you other posts, getting QF SC's can be hard for Eu/UK resident who do not travel to Au-NZ or in Asia (for Jetstar SC'S) or other QF long haul routes.

Edit: sample Eu QF codeshare

Schedule for June 27
London - Basel/Mulhouse/Freiburg (LHR-BSL)

Also not necessary if you're OK with a 4-hour train journey.

Earning Qantas Points on Air France, KLM

Until now, Qantas Frequent Flyer members could only earn Qantas Points with Air France and KLM when travelling on a Qantas (QF) codeshare flight number.

While that’s still possible, travellers can also now earn Qantas Points – but not status credits – on all paid fare types on all Air France and KLM flights globally, being those with AF and KL flight numbers. The number of points earned will depend on the type of fare purchased and the distance of the flight.

QF continuing to move away from Oneworld & EK.
Other airlines are also doing more partnerships outside of the 3 big alliances
