    I am curious what the earning rate is for this fare, is it 1 or 0.25 miles, the airline table is not quite clear on this for flights via Sin or BKK?

    The Kangaroo route earning for BA is 1 for all fares. I cant recall if this also applies to just the first hop. Unfortunately Qantas website is down at the moment so I cant look it up.

    Did anyone else notice something interesting related to this offer?

    "The 50% reduction is calculated on the tax exclusive price. "

    Right?

    Wrong.

    1/2 price on the tax/fees/FUEL SURCHARGE exclusive price.

    Makes it around $75 more expensive than it should be.

    Once again Australian's are being misled by fuel surcharges and an airline is trying to hide them away as a tax or other associated charge... Bring on full visibility of all charges in the base airfare.


    Further more.

    The website also says "We are offering lovers, and others, a sweet 50% off British Airways return airfares from Sydney to Bangkok and Singapore and from Melbourne to Singapore, booked on ba.com. "

    So it's 50% off the cheapest fare right?

    WRONG!

    The special fare SYD-SIN seems to book into R class ($904 ++ normally). The cheapest advertised fare at the moment for mid March is $600++ in O class SYD-SIN. The advertised fares MEL-SIN are similar.

    An example:
    Leave Mar 16, Come back Mar 23 (SYD-SIN).
    Discounted Fare:
    Fare 452.00 AUD Taxes/Surcharges 263.18 AUD Total 715.18 AUD

    Non Discounted Fare (Lowest) - Same Dates.
    Fare 600.00 AUD Taxes/Surcharges 263.18 AUD Total 863.18 AUD

    MEL-SIN the "discounted" price is $695.92 vs a non-discounted price of $843.92

    1/2 price my big toe!!!
