It does include ALL domestic flights, so they are hardly putting Perth folk at more of a disadvantage than present.Just received this offer by email and couldn't wait to book flights.

If you're in Sydney you can fly to Bangkok, Singapore, Tokyo (Narita), Los Angeles, Dallas Fort Worth, New York (JFK), Auckland, Santiago, Manila, Hamilton Island, Gold Coast, or Alice Springs.
If you're in Melbourne, then fly to Singapore, Los Angeles, New York (JFK), London (LHR), Auckland, or Alice Springs.
Even from Brisbane you can fly to Singapore, Los Angeles, New York (JFK), Auckland, Hamilton Island or Alice Springs.
From Perth - choose between Alice Springs and Auckland. Or Singapore if you're prepared to fly Jetstar, which I will not do.
There seems to be no end to the ways in which the scaling back of QI and the partnership with EK is screwing over frequent flyers from Perth.
Qantas really should changes it's slogan to "The Spirit of Sydney".
I find best value Y redemptions are usually QF link. In fact if you are ok with substituting other international carriers for J flights (instead of QF) it's not uncommon to see a better cents per point ratio on QF link Y flights than international J.Such a shame Y redemptions are such poor value.
Could be worthwhile if you absolutely needed to take a peak golden triangle flight with no red e-deals left.
What dates? They are limited.Guys I must be doing something wrong. As it turns out I was ready to book a CBR to MEL classif awards flights in Y, when I saw this email.
So I followed the instructions carefully, and its still coming up at 8000 points (not 6800). I went right to the end just prior to putting in the CC details, and still charging 8,000.
Anyone else having difficulty?
Sorry, didn't read the fine printWhat dates? They are limited.
You are right, no points, sc's or squiggles.I was going to book a domestic flight but classic award flights don't earn SC or points .
Am I correct in assuming it would not count as an "eligible flight" for the "minimum 4 eligible flight segments" needed to be able to advance to the next status level ? .
