I am planning to book some flights soon, I have found the itinerary I want using the Emirates website but was hoping to compare it with the Qantas price as I'd prefer to earn SCs if its a similar price.

All the flights do come up in different searches on Qantas but not when I do the Multi City I want, I think they all have a QF flight number except for EK978.

QF35 MEL-SIN 10 March 16
EK978 IKA(THR)-DXB 12 March 16
EK354 DXB-SIN 15 March 16
EK404 SIN-MEL 15 March 16

When I search it tells me to contact a Qantas office, but I thought I'd ask here in case there is something obvious that is stopping the search.

Thanks

I assume you mean EK405 for SIN/DXB and on 16/03. EK404 is a DXB-SIN-MEL flight.

QF don't publish fares for DXB-SIN return and the EK fare does not permit QF flight numbers. You'll need to book this as QF MEL/SIN one way, EK IKA/DXB one way, EK DXB/SIN return.

Thanks for the reply,

I meant EK404 SIN-MEL

So that means I would have to do a return QF MEL-SIN and then IKA-DXB, DXB-SIN as another booking?

You can ticket IKA-DXB-SIN-MEL on a single QF ticket but it's more expensive than a MEL-SIN return + IKA-DXB-SIN one way.

I'd recommend considering a return ticket MEL-SIN-DXB-IKA-DXB-SIN-MEL... it may work out better for you:

Flights for SIN-DXB-IKA can be tweaked as needed...

Thanks for all those details and prices madrooster.

I will look at doing the return to SIN then another booking for IKA-DXB-SIN, The reason a round trip to IKA doesn't work for me is that I have already booked KUL-IKA on IR, So now I am trying to find flights to get to KUL (planning on trying Oman Air from SIN-KUL) then from IKA back to MEL with a few days in DXB in between.

You can use a QF fare for MEL-SIN <open jaw> KUL-DXB-IKA-DXB-SIN-MEL and it'll still come out cheaper than MEL-SIN return + IKA-DXB-SIN (which would be $1651). Basically if you aren't 100% fussed about which airline you're using and you just want QF SC's... I'd dump the IR ticket and just use a single return fare.

Then you just need a SIN-KUL ticket... Jetstar Asia, AirAsia, Oman Air, SQ, MH are a few options. You can't include SIN-KUL in the QF fare.
