I've got an interesting quandary....
I've been able to snap up some super cheap fares for myself and my family, that are mainly at the front and in a couple of cases the VERY front of the plane.
Some of the fares are with QF & BA, so I'm more than covered understanding the options and earning potential here, as I'm a WP with QF.
Coming up, the four in our family have the following: RGN-BKK (Y with TG), then a RGN-SIN (J with SQ) and SIN-MEL (A with EK). I have no status with anyone and a few points with KrisFlyer, but not enough to worry about.
What I'm interested in is doing what I'm doing with my QF & BA flights, which is registering everyone, with QFF then doing a family transfer at the end (we don't travel as a family very often). Which *A program would you recommend? I'm most interested in using the points in and around Asia probably (if we even will have enough)?
I just can't let myself just waste the prospect of A class points....
Aegean - 20k miles to earn *G and 1 flight every 3 years to maintain it seems.

United. I don't think the OP mentioned a desire to be Star Gold/Silver.
Intra-Asia flights at 12,500 miles. A good deal, I think.
Actually Ben is confusing.
Mentions *A in the same post as BA & QF.

"RGN-BKK (Y with TG), then a RGN-SIN (J with SQ)" there's not much distance in it anyhow, so no effective status to be gained.

I'm in the same situation. The family is OW for frequent flyers but we are doing a J RTW trip on a TG, LX & LH flights for half of the trip in Sep 12.
I was going to get everyone on KF to do a BNE-CHC visit for the snow in Jul/Aug 2013. About 25k in Y or 36k point in J return. I was going to use AMEX points to top up.
The trip is BNE-BKK in TG, BKK-xZRH-FCO in LX, LHR-xFRA-MCO in LH. All in business.
I've calculated about 15725 miles should give 19641 points with business (125%) loading on KF.
Using AA & QF across the US and home.
Not too worried about *A status, more just getting the next holiday organised!
Appreciate any advice.
