Status credits determine your Frequent Flyer membership level. Every time you fly on eligible* flights, we will allocate Status credits to your account. As soon as you have earned the required Status credit to qualify for the next membership level, and provided you have travelled a minimum of four eligible Qantas, Qantas Link or Jetstar flights during your membership year, you will automatically move up to the next membership level. Status credits are totally separate from Qantas Points, they are simply a measure of how often and how far you fly on eligible airlines.
The more status credits you earn, the higher your membership level.
You will retain any new status for at least 12 months. At the end of your membership year, your Status credits will be reset to zero. Provided you continue to earn the required number of status credits each year, and take at least four eligible Qantas, Qantas Link or Jetstar flights in that membership year, you will remain at your acquired level.

It is the responsibility of the Member to check whether a proposed booking is eligible to earn Status credits and if so how many status credits will be earned.
