I need to get rid of some expiring Krisflyer points, and am planning to use them on a short trip SYD-AKL later this year (25K points return).

When I pretend to book a normal flight (on ITA Software), NZ additional charges are about $213 return, but are about $165 on UA codeshare on the same NZ-operated flights.

This isn't a huge issue, but generally can you specifiy code share flights (both being *A) when booking award flights with Krisflyer - or any other FF programme? I imagine the differences could be significant for other routes.

generally no

best bet (for minimising fuel surcharge on awards, may no be best bet in terms of redemption value) is to redeem on flights operated by an airline with no/low fuel surcharges
