    Looking at SIN/MEL, I noticed that J rewards are 75,000 QF points (vs 68,000 on QF metal). Ok maybe EK (and BA) are more 'expensive'. But what's going on with taxes? QF redemption on EK404 SIN-MEL is 75,000 points + SGD 84.40 whereas EK405 MEL-SIN is 75,000 points + AUD1,217.67 !! Does...

    Strange Qantas economy / business redemption pricing

    Bit of a strange one while doing some flight research. Male (Maldives) > Colombo > Melbourne on Sri Lankan Airlines is 100,000 pts +$247 in Economy or 86,200 points and $341 in Business. Wouldn't be a difficult decision if I was in a position to make a firm booking right now!
