I’m currently 140 status points off Silver for QF. Since last year I have been on standby list for Cathay and so rarely use full flight tickets any more. As such I’m slowly sliding down the status rankings (was Gold regularly previously). I will be on the Cathay list indefinitely as my partner flies for them.
I have a large amount of QFF points (600k+) that I use for family holidays.
My question is this: If I have Bronze status, or no status at all, will that affect my ability to purchase tickets using my QFF points?
Is it worth my maintaining Sliver or Bronze status to get more reach from my QFF points purchases when I make them (roughly once a year).
