    Booking EK sectors with QF Points - how far out can I book?

    Hi Thanks for feedback. I have corrected DBX to DXB. From subsequent online research it seems redemptions on EK metal in J are not as difficult as on QF metal, even if one is using QF points :-) Still 11 months out (or thereabouts) for EK is still fine.

    SYD-BME and DRW-SYD on QF

    Hi Mattg Thanks for the feedback. I don't have blinkered loyalty to QF but want to do both sectors direct so on my understanding that obligates QF on SYD-BME. Cheers Geoff
