Qantas Australia – I Still Call Australia Home
Qantas was founded on November 16, 1920 (which is also Oklahoma Statehood Day, in case you’re a fan of trivia) and to mark the occasion you’ll earn double AAdvantage Miles on qualifying tickets booked on Qantas or American Airlines codeshare flights between the U.S., Australia, or New Zealand during March, April or May of 2011 on tickets purchased between November 10, 2010 and January 31, 2011.
In order to take advantage of this offer, you’ll need to register before making your travel plans using promotion code: QF90Y – make sure you check your fare class, to make sure it’s eligible to earn AAdvantage Miles, not all fare classes earn full miles, some don’t qualify for any miles at all (I learned this lesson from Qantas a few years ago).
Here’s the details from American’s website:
Book your trip between November 10, 2010, and January 31, 2011 (dates inclusive).
Travel between March 1, 2011, and May 31, 2011 (dates inclusive).
In celebration of Qantas’ 90th Anniversary, AAdvantage members can earn double miles when traveling on a qualifying ticket on any Qantas Airways or American Airlines flight number between the US and Australia or New Zealand during March, April and May 2011.
For every trip you take during the promotion period, you can earn double miles. Just book your trips before January 31, 2011 and register before travel. The extra miles you can earn are in addition to your standard base miles and class of service bonus.
Experience Qantas’ A380 on selected services between the US and Australia. Onboard, you can enjoy Qantas’ award winning products, including Premium Economy, voted best in class at the 2010 Skytrax World Airline Awards.
Offer valid for residents of the US and Canada.
Register before travel by selecting the red “REGISTER” button.

The actual song was originally written and performed by Australian Peter Allen: some love it, some hate it, but it occupies a unique place in popular Australian culture and this commercial was wildly successful.)
