    It seems every time I call Qantas and choose the option for Frequent Flyer program I get hung up on.

    All I want to ask them is why I got 225 points per segment flying Iberia ALC-MAD where I thought I'd get the 1,000 minimum crediting Qantas... I booked via Travelocity and flew Economy.

    Sorry, cannot help with why you get hung up on when trying to reach QFF.

    However, as for the 225 points, it appears the 1000 point minimum guarantee only applies when flying with QF (and when flying 'full economy' JQ). There is also a lesser minimum guarantee when flying BA or AA.

    It may be misleading on certain parts of the QF website (not sure), but there are no minimum point guarantees when flying any other airline, as per this link.

    Hence you were credited with 225 miles/points as the actual distance flown.

    Agree with above answers. I remember taking some BA flights in discount Y and getting a paltry 96 points. Bleurgh.

    I thoguht BA has a smallish minimum points, like 125 points. Maybe that was brought in after you took the flight.
