It's Time for Qantas Frequent Flyer to Ditch the $99.50 Joining Fee
The past few months have demonstrated the importance to airlines of a frequent flyer program with as many engaged members as possible. At a time of significantly reduced flying, loyalty programs remain one of the only consistent sources of much-needed revenue for airlines such as Qantas.

So, why on earth does Qantas Frequent Flyer still charge Australian residents a $99.50 joining fee in 2020?

AFF Member Profile
This week, we interviewed AFF member jakeseven7 from the Brisbane. jakeseven7 joined Australian Frequent Flyer in 2005 and has so far made 2,389 posts.
Q: Where did you go on your last trip?
A: Domestically, Melbourne. Internationally, Bangkok.
Q: Where will you go when the current travel bans are lifted?
A: Domestically: Melbourne, Devonport and Bendigo. Internationally: Rome.
Q: Favourite airline?
A: For domestic flights, Qantas. Although for work I used to fly a lot on Virgin as well before it collapsed, and it was fine, the higher quality of service and seamless experience that Qantas offers is just consistently better for my personal needs and flying patterns. For international flights, I like Emirates, Qatar, Qantas and Cathay Pacific. I only fly J [Business class] internationally for work so they are all good to be honest. I'm not interested in the minutia of differences in the colour of beige between the offers!
Q: What's one piece of advice you would give to a new AFF member?
A: Don't spread yourself too thin. Focus on one alliance or airline and you can shut out the noise from the rest. Makes it much easier to process!
Q: Favourite thread on AFF?
A: I love reading peoples' trip reports, they give me inspiration to plan my next trip!
