You can use QFF points to book the CX direct ADL - HKG flight as a partner award. IIRC it is 36,000 QFF points in Y one way.
If you have Asia Miles and book the same flight, IIRC it is 24,000 points in Y :shock:
If you pay cash for the flight you will earn twice as many Asia Miles for it as you would QFF points :shock::shock: (assuming you book an eligible fare class).
The point, that I got, was that SQ actually fly to ADL. Meaning there is no need to stuff around getting out of the country.
Yeah, that's great, but does it really make sense for BNE / MEL / ADL all to go to SYD only to fly back to SE Asia? Waste of time, waste of fuel. ADL would be a better hub!
