    A Business Award flight from MEL - JFK

    Could I have some thoughts on a J award from MEL-JFK for October 2018. I have considered QF and CX via Qantas points and EY or SQ via Virgin points as we have enough for either. The QF/CX award is available to book now whereas the EY has not opened up yet. Your thoughts please people?
