      Hi Katy,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Yes, since Cathay Pacific and Cathay Dragon lounges are available to First and Business Class passengers, selected members of The Marco Polo Club and oneworld partner programme members.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

    I have been travelling frequently with my wife to the U.S. and Europe and also far east. How do I register for the ‘frequent flyer’ status?
    Will I be able to add the trips made earlier from 2006 on wards?

      Hi Sridhar,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      If you’re after of signing up with Marco Polo Club, kindly visit their page for your online application and to know more on their tier and memebership benefits. You may learn more on claiming missing points by logging in on your Cathay Pacific account then click on “Manage Your club points and/or Asia Miles” and then “Claim Missing club points and/or Asia Miles” to complete a Missing Mileage Request Form online. It would then let you know if you may claim points for flights you had earlier that 2006.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,
      Jeni

      Hi Peter,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, it’s not possible to transfer your points from one frequent flyer program to another because different programs have different terms and conditions surrounding how you earn points and what they can be spent on.

      However, it is possible to redeem your frequent flyer points for flights and rewards with another partner airline. You may check our guide to learn more about how to redeem and earn frequent flyer points with other airlines.

      Cheers,
      Anndy

      Hi Mary,

      Thanks for your question.

      Although Qantas and Cathay Pacific are partnered airlines, unfortunately, you won’t be able to access the Marco Polo lounge unless you’re a member. Also, as you can’t enter the lounges for a fee, you need to be a member to enter.

      Cheers,
      May

      Hi Fred,

      Thanks for your question.

      Unfortunately, as Qantas and Cathay Pacific both belong to the oneworld Alliance and Singapore Airlines belongs to the Star Alliance, you can’t transfer KrisFlyer Miles between these airlines.

      Cheers,

      Sally
