Hello everyone. I have been wanting to post but couldn't work out how!! I have 700k points so accruing is not the issue, spending the points is because you have to make reservations so far in advance. I did pick up that doing a points trip to Asia and then paying from Asia to Europe or Asia to USA might be the best way to get business class seats. does everyone agree with this. I am a QFF who has just lost silver status. I am travelling to HK in two weeks Premium Economy and have put in for upgrade to BC there and back. I live in Adelaide but deliberately chose to fly to Melbourne to get a bigger 747 with more BC seats availability to assist in my cause. Does Qantas still to the FF lottery about a week out of flying or is that only for domestic flights?
