Book an Air NZ (NZ) Domestic Flight but with a Qantas (QF) Codeshare Code

Kia ora koutou.
I have Qantas Gold status (thanks to a status extension deal) but lost my Air NZ Gold last month due to not being able to fly due to pandemic restrictions and pretty restrictive extensions from Air NZ.

I was wondering if anyone knows how to book a domestic flight (WLG-TRG) within NZ (on Air NZ) but with a QF codeshare booking code. This can be done when connecting to a QF international flight but I can't seem to find a way to do this for a single domestic flight.

The reason I ask is this would allow me to utilise my Qantas gold status within NZ (lounge access etc). Any help would be much appreciated. I wondered whether travel agents or flight aggregators might be an option.



  • Ive been in a similar predicament, and never been able to gain access to codeshare flights beyond a domestic extension to an international booking. Qantas only let you book rewards flights domestically in NZ, and the 3rd party websites (webjet/ etc) dont let you either.

    I think your best bet is to try for a status match with a Star Alliance partner. Ive managed to do this once with AirNZ in the past, and it was tricky (had to show them my last 6 months of travel with my Gold status airline, as well as a bunch of upcoming travel with AirNZ). But others have (apparently) been much easier. A star alliance partner match to Gold will give you access to the Airnz lounges. Good luck
