    NZ PER-AKL award availability wide open

    Just thought I would post this in case anyone is interested/looking. Air New Zealand has released lots of award seats in Y & J on its Boeing 787 services between Perth and Auckland. At 12,500 KrisFlyer miles in Y or 31,000 KrisFlyer miles in J, it's potentially a good use of SQ miles (or points...

    I've been lucky enough to secure approval to travel for my business to LHR. I'm looking at Booking a J award to Europe with Emirates during May 2021 Any thoughts on probability of me getting bumped if I'm using a classic QF reward rather than paying for the ticket?

    QF702 MEL-CNS Award Availability

    Was skimming around looking at where QF have currently deployed their A330s domestically, because if I'm going to shell out some avios to take the family away it's going to be in J on a decent plane. Found QF702 running daily from MEL-CNS on an A330: perfect! Trouble is, there doesn't seem to...

    SQ pulls partner award inventory

    Singapore Airlines has reportedly removed award inventory from all partner airlines until at least 1 September 2020. So it's not currently possible to book any SQ award flights using United miles, Alaska miles, LifeMiles, etc. (Velocity redemptions on all partners remain unavailable anyway.) SQ...

    QF awards available on JL codeshare flights operated by Korean Air?

    I haven't come across this before... On the Qantas website, it seems you can now book JL codeshare flights operated by Korean Air? At least, that's being offered when I search for flights from ICN-HEL... Who would've thought you could use Qantas points to fly on a Korean Air aircraft!
