    Problems booking Qantas reward flight

    Hi there, I am having a bit of trouble trying to book a QF flight via the Skywards redemption search: A lot of destinations are simply unavailable in the Airport search, for example BNE-WLG, BNE-HBA etc. Does this have to do with there being no direct EK or QF service? However, if I for...
