Knowing this flight was low on reaping QFF points (50) and SC's (5), it didn't come as a surprise but still looks rather hilarious. At this rate, it'll take only 159 more flights to score a one-way Y award to the next city over... :p

Do we have flights where you could get even less (but still get some points / SC's)?

I've got quite a few 100 point / 5 SC flights logged like below - never seen a 50 point flight though!

100 Points and 10 SC in the history for my Air Berlin domestic German flights. All of my routes were long enough to yield 10 SC. The shorter ones had 100 Points and 5SC.

Since Lufthansa changed to a revenue based System I had flights with 12 Miles!

0 Points and O SC on a Qatar Flight
Just adding to the mix as I am a bit board and adding no real value - MrsM, MissM and I have all had a few OW flights that I received 0 Points and 0 SC for, but then again these were F and J redemptions. I suppose these don’t really count. ;):) Got a few more coming up next year as well.

I think 50 points + 5 SCs is also the lowest I've earned via QFF:

My all-round lowest earner from a flight was 36 United miles (including 50% bonus miles):

61 points between MCY and BNE. back when QFF discount economy earned 0.7 point per Km with no minimum

I was also surprised in the late 90's to earn a miserly 110 points MEL-SYD on a BA*QF flight number.

My friend earnt 0 points and 0 SCs on a Melb -Syd flight the night Abbott was sacked as Liberal leader.

He said, emerging from the gate tunnel that was worth way more than any points.

To which I replied, but you’re not a member

NO QFF membership no points

I'm fairly certain the lowest I have managed is 100 points and 10 SCs for LGW - BOD and KUL - LGK.

50 points and 5 SCs also (LHR-MAN on BA) and have had to submit a missing points claim for the last four of these flights :(
That would have generated some mirth at the QF office when they received your request.

Wow, you may be setting a record here... :D

Looking at the QF partner earning table, they seem to gift whopping 25 points & 5 SC for discount economy flights <100 miles. Supersonic Swinger's comment about the direction of the FF program may be spot on when looking at it from that angle.
