    1. I need to travel Perth-Frankfurt (ultimately Nuremburg) Feb 1 2007 - returning Feb 4.
    2. Currently QFF Gold. I am looking at CX Business class via London. $5816 + Taxes
    3. However, LH also has great fares. $5047 + T (Per-BKK-FRA-Nuremeburg)
    4. I will more than re-qualify QFF Gold - and be on the way to Platinum.
    5. Is it worth joining a SA FF programme and get a quicker, more direct flight to and from Germany ? As the fare is via BKK - I guess the first sector will be TG.

    Or - do I consolidate with QFF ?

    Thanks GCD

    If you go with CX how will you get between Frankfurt and Nuremberg? A separate air ticket for such a short trip may be risky (else costly to buy a flexible one).

    PER-BKK-FRA-NRN return in LH business class is enough for *Silver status starting from scratch.

    Train for the last segment is fast and frequent.
    Else, taking Lufthansa with a Frankfurt-Nuremburg connection.
