Oneworld Award (140K/280K/420K) Planning

The Qantas oneworld Classic Flight Reward is a Qantas Frequent Flyer redemption for a distance-based ticket up to a maximum of 35,000 miles of travel, using 140,000 points in Economy, 280,000 points in Business and 420,000 points in First class.

Rules

The conditions for the oneworld Classic Flight Reward are set out in the Qantas Frequent Flyer program terms and conditions. In summary:

13.2.4 A Reward Flight Itinerary must contain no more than 16 Segments (including any Surface Segments).

14.3.5 A Classic Flight Reward Itinerary must contain no more than one departure from the city or country of first departure on that Itinerary.

14.5.1 The itinerary must include travel on at least two oneworld alliance airlines other than Qantas, and no travel on any non-oneworld airlines. (Note: travel on Qantas is not a requirement.)
14.5.2 The maximum distance travelled must be no more than 56,315KM (35,000 miles).
14.5.3 Unlike standard Classic Flight Rewards, prices are based on return journeys, not one-way. If the itinerary finishes in a different port than that started in, the distance between those two ports must be included in the maximum allowable distance.
14.5.4 Stopover conditions:
(a) Five free stopovers are permitted;
(b) Additional stopovers are not permitted;
(c) You may only stop once in any one city;
(d) Only two transfers are permitted at any one city.
14.5.5 Surface segments are permitted, but the distance will be included between the two ports.
14.5.6 If classes are mixed, the itinerary price will be calculated based on the highest class booked.

oneworld Classic Flight Reward table

While a oneworld Classic Flight Reward can range in value between a shorter zone 1 award and a much longer zone 10 award, this wiki and associated thread concerns the zone 10 award primarily.

    "oneworld" award (140K/280K/420K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    There's plenty of material on this site about the One World Explorer RTW fare, and many on this site who have used it.

    But I've searched yet cannot find any info on the equivalent flight award that allows you to skip around the globe on points.

    Qantas certainly don't have anything on their website.

    But it does exist - a mate of mine has used slightly above the normal 128,000 pts that a return trip to JFK or Europe would involve, but has been able to do a RTW itinerary on One World airlines using points.

    Can anyone help me out here?

    The Qantas Award product they have named the Qantas OneWorld Award has nothing to do with the OneWorld Explorer product.

    From the QF FF Terms and Conditions from their web site:
    Quote Originally Posted by qantas.com.au

    13.5.1 A oneworld Award is an Award Flight Itinerary that includes travel on at least two oneworld Alliance Airlines other than Qantas and does not include any travel on any airline that is not a oneworld Alliance Airline. Jetstar Airways is not a oneworld Alliance Airline.

    13.5.2 Award Flights using the oneworld Award table must be no more than a distance of 56,315 kilometres (35,000 miles). Longer journeys must be broken into separate Itineraries.

    13.5.3 A one way oneworld Award Itinerary will be charged as a return Itinerary. oneworld Award Itineraries finishing in a port other than the port of origin must include the distance to return directly to the port of origin when calculating the number of Points required to redeem the Flight Award and the maximum distance for the Itinerary.

    13.5.4 The following Stopover conditions apply:
    (a) up to five free Stopovers are permitted;
    (b) additional Stopovers are not permitted;
    (c) only one Stopover is permitted in any one city in the Itinerary; and
    (d) only two Transfers may be taken at any one city in the Itinerary.

    13.5.5 Surface Segments are permitted as part of oneworld Award Itineraries, but the distance between the disembarkation point and the next embarkation point will be included in the Award Point zone calculation for that Itinerary.

    13.5.6 Where mixed-class travel is booked, the whole Itinerary will be calculated using the Points level for the highest class booked.

    Thanks NM.

    I tried to read those terms and conditions but they gave me a headache. Is there a cap on the number of points required for the OneWorld award fare, eg. 140,000? Or does it depend totally on the number of miles you travel?

    The oneWORLD award gives generally better value for points than most other means of burning them.

    I've been working out an ATW in 'J' for my wife and the conditions as spelt out by QF were:
    1. 285000 points,
    2. Must use 3 (or more) carriers,
    3. Only allowed 5 stop overs,
    4. Doesn't actually have to be ATW just a combination that fits the above conditions.

    I hope that helps.
    cheers,
    Bill.

    And from what I can tell, this fare is impossible to book over the net so you can automatically add the 2500 pt phone booking fee too.

    Correct, it can't be booked over the net. Not sure if the 2500 is waived for higher status levels though I'm sure someone will tell us soon enough.
    cheers,

    Can do it with only two OneWorld airlines if you want. The restriction is that you must use 2 carriers other than Qantas. So if Qantas is included, then its a minimum of 3 carriers. If no Qantas flights in the itinerary, then only two OneWorld carriers required.

    As a matter of fact this is true; to the point that the table I linked to above actually includes the 2500 point penalty.
