    Qantas Club Pass - Mark III (One to give away)

    Best place for SQ points? *A status?

    Hi all, I have to fly to SIN this weekend on SQ from ADL. For various reasons I have a J seat there and a Y one back (then straight back to work <sigh>). Not having flown *A since AN went bellyup, I'm a little put of touch with how *A works compared to OW. Based on what I've read, UA is the...
