You can't earn Qantas status credits (only points) on Emirates flights with an EK flight number. You do earn if it's a Qantas codesahre booked on a QF flight number, but that wouldn't be available on the tickets out of the Philippines.With EK also offering the same deal, do you earn Q status credits on EK metal or is it only QR?
Not always the case with travel. Picked up a wonderful J fare to SGN last year with SQ around this time and the year before picked up a J reward with BA to SIN even later than this. But MNL does seem to be one of those places at Christmas with higher pricing.I guess that's to be expected if booking 2 months out for Christmas travel.
How is availability on SYD-MNL for the rest of the year?
