An update on flexible Classic Flight Reward seats
From 1 January 2023, fee-free date changes under Fly Flexible will no longer be offered on Qantas domestic, international and trans-Tasman Classic Flight Reward seats.
You may still be able to change or cancel your flight, depending on the rules of the fare you’ve booked. Check your fare conditions for all restrictions and fees.
If however, you’ve booked an eligible trans-Tasman or International Classic Flight Reward before 30 September 2022, you’ll still be able to change your travel dates or cancel your booking fee-free until 31 December 2022. Additional points may be required.
