    This Destination Chart for Qantas Services indicted it's "zone 4" or 25,000 points each way (via Sydney); a total of 50,000 for PER-CHC-PER.

    However, I was led to believe this was to be based on the zones for the segments. As there are no direct CHC<->PER flights you need to travel via an intermediate port. eg SYD i.e. PER-SYD + SYD-CHC + CHC-SYD + SYD-PER. All are "zone 3" or 18,000 points; a total of 72,000 points.

    I am not sure why the table is indicating "Zone 4" :? ; as a result the only thing certain is the answer is either 50,000 or 72,000 points. :?

    PER-SIN is easy; "Zone 4" on a direct flight.

    Here is a link to the POINTS TABLE

    You only add the segment zone costs if you stop in Sydney. The routing will likely be PER-SYD-CHC-SYD-PER, and the points cost is for the distance travelled between stopovers. So PER-SYD-CHC is 2041+1323=3364 miles. That fits into zone 4. So for the return trip you need 2 x zone 4 awards which is 50,000 points total in economy (2 x 25,000 points).

    If you want to stopover in Sydney, it then becomes 2 x zone 3 awards for PER-SYD and SYD-CHC for 18,000 points each. Stopover in both directions and its 72,000 points total.

    kelli,

    NM is correct. The basic answer is 50,000 points unless you wish a intermediate stopover. I had known this, but that was back last year ;} ...
