Good news for anyone with Airpoints Dollars - you can now use these to book Qantas domestic flights on 85 routes across Australia. Reward flights can be booked on the Air New Zealand website and award availability seems to roughly match what's offered to Qantas Frequent Flyer members. The catch is that only Economy reward seats are available - and not Business class.

Should also mention that it's currently not possible for Australian airpoint accounts to redeem or search online. The process currently requires a phone call to Air NZ to find flights then an additional $100 "booking fee" which they won't waive either.

Thanks, I've updated the article.

Charging $100 to book something you can't do online does seem a bit harsh!
