There is an FAQ with more details when you scroll down at:
The only FAQ that slightly puzzles me is this one:
I am registered for Qantas Frequent Flyers program, how are the points calculated?
The Qantas Frequent Flyers programs direct earn conversion rates will remain the same.
I assume this means that we will effectively earn double QFF points because we're earning double Cth rewards points?
