    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!

    Seat Selection for BA flight (booked as QFF redemption) separate bookings

    So I've just booked a flight on BA (with QFF points) in business class (rewards) on which I was able to select seats quite easily (QF Gold / OW Sapphire). Turns out that I had to make another booking for a family member on the same flight, and unfortunately they had no status so wasn't able to...

    SQ Redemption Flight Change - No ticket number?

    Hi all, looking for some advice. My Velocity redemption for SQ SIN-MEL was moved forward by 10 minutes, and this tiny change is leading to some unfortunate consequences. The current situation is: - I’ve noticed in the SQ online Manage Flight portal that there’s a banner saying I’m not ticketed...

    Mixed class redemption

    Hello all! I've currently got a J redemption SIN-MEL and looking at changing it to BKK-MEL. There's no longer J seats available on the BKK-SIN leg but I'm ok to take this flight in Y. Given the zones are the same, the miles required should technically be at the same rate right? I had assumed...

    My Velocity points balance has fallen to zero... and I couldn't be happier

    A lot of points collectors seem to think that a sign of success is having a balance in the millions. I don't subscribe to this theory - let me explain why. I've just spent every last point in my Velocity account. I'm very happy with this result because it means I've been able to spend the...

    Good redemption rates for Qantas points?

    Hi all, I was wondering what you all would consider a minimum threshold for redemption points value for it to be worth spending Qantas points on? Obviously different things will have different values, such as hotels, classic flight awards, upgrades etc. I'm mainly thinking of using my points on...

    Qantas points redemption to/from Maldives

    I was looking at using my QF points for flights to and from Maldives next year. CX, UL, MH are the QF partners that operate flights to Male. However I can’t seem to even enter MLE as a departure airport on the QF website. (I wanted to book one way from Maldives back) Despite on some dates I was...

    Redemption flights from anywhere back TO Australia

    I was trying to book a redemption flight for me and my partner from Helsinki back to either/or SYD/MEL/CBR/DPO, but could not find a single redemption flight to Australia for December/Jan. Then I found alternative flights all the way to KL, which is an excellent place for a few days' break. Now...

    You can now redeem Qantas points for JAL domestic First Class

    This notice was in today's Qantas Platinum newsletter: I hadn't really noticed before that you couldn't previously use Qantas points on JAL domestic routes in premium cabins. But it's also quite possible that I just never looked into it. Is this a new thing? FWIW I'm currently *only* seeing...

    Managed to get a FJ redemption from SFO-NAN-AKL in business with a 12 hour daytime layover in Nadi for early November for ~ 90k points. Taxes were minimal (75 USD). Will probably stay in New Zealand for 1-6 days before flying back to Oz. There were no seats of QF for months either side. Has...
