    Is it worth redeeming points for Y and W awards?

    Is it worth redeeming points for Y and W awards? Have to book and fly at short notice and can’t get a J award but combo of Y/W/J might be possible? Is it bad value to use points for awards below J?

    A380 operating QF79 MEL-NRT on 21/10/19 [as a "Points Plane"]

    Qantas is operating an A380 from Melbourne to Tokyo as a one-off service on 21 October as QF79. Only J and Y are being sold, so presumably some lucky Y passengers will be able to select seats in the PE cabin, and likewise with F seats for J pax. I can currently see award availability on this...

    BA changing partner award prices

    Uh oh, this cannot be good news :( British Airways is apparently making "changes" to the number of Avios required for redemptions on partner airlines, except for BA, Iberia, Aer Lingus and Vueling. However, they haven't actually said what the new prices will be! I expect prices will increase...

    EF not seeming to reflect award flights for QF platinum

    Hi, I am a premium member of EF and a QFF plat. I have added my QFF number to EF but the searches do not reflect the availability on the QF award site.
