    Hard to redeem Qantas points on Emirates?

    I think I'm an experienced QF points redeemer. I’ve managed to fly J class every June for the past six years Brisbane to Europe, but has usually been with CX &/or BA, in to London, Paris, Frankfurt etc. I book 350-odd days in advance & not had a problem. Had time on my hands recently & out of...

    SQ Redemption not working IST-BNE

    Been trying to book a SQ redemption for IST-BNE J class for early January 2021. I hit the button at exactly 10am AEST 355 days out, but only see Advantage redemptions. I can see IST-SIN J Saver redemptions for the date, and then the next day I can see SIN-BNE J Save redemptions. Is this because...

    Is it possible to add an extra leg to a velocity redemption?

    Situation is I have a bne-lax flight booked. I would like to add a delta connection lax to phx. The connecting redemption flight is available but I’m just not sure if VA allows you to add a flight. I could not do it online and the first agent I spoke to had no idea if it was possible. Any advice...

    A Qantas J points redemption whinge

    I received an email from Qantas saying that they had J points-redemption seats available from MEL to San Francisco (YAY!!). Have just discovered that the route will be MEL to Shanghai (Pudong), a 6.5 hour wait, then Shanghai to San Francisco, all on China East. A total of 29 hours. WTF???!!!

    I have just made a sweet redemption for April - MEL-SIN-CGK in QF F and 3K (Jetstar Asia) Y - and CGK-SIN-MEL in 3K Y and EK F. It would have been even sweeter if I had made it a fortnight ago. :) Now I knew the deal with the Jetstar Asia legs when I booked, so this isn't a complaint as such...

    Do redemption seats "devalue" the First Class product?

    Before reading this - BREATHE! This is not my opinion – it is a QUESTION. And I am not the first person to ponder this – I thought this a great forum for a sensible (?) discussion… Recently I was reading about AF or LH (or maybe both) that do not allow First Class seats to be fully redeemed as...

    MH redemptions to Europe in J - dynamic pricing

    Haven't been on the MH site for a while. Is there ANY point in even looking for J redemptions to Europe? I had a quick look but can find nothing for less than 406,000 return. Am I doing something wrong?

    Krisflyer Redemptions - The Best Kept FF Secret [Pre Aug 14, 2019]

    For those not aware - from August 14, Krisflyer removed the ability to waitlist for a flight within 14 days of departure. Being able to waitlist was (IMO) the single biggest perk of redeeming Krisflyer miles on Singapore Airlines. Why so good, and why did SQ remove the option? When...
