On the website I'm being quoted around $800 return and yet if I can get a seat it will be only 16000 points. Why pay with $ unless accomodation is over the top unless it is packaged?Mal said:Still will make it out to each for a weekend at some stage. Don't know when though and unlikely to use points for either.
Thanks Mal, I assume someone has done a calc on the best use for points and a table exists somewhere - is International upgrades from Y to J the best in terms of cents per point?Mal said:Fares to Lord Howe Island from Syd...
Decent value I agree. However I prefer to use my points for other things where I get more value (such as upgrades on International).
If it makes sense to you to use points, just go for it. However the package deals do look to be good value (From circa $1100 for airfares, transfers and 7 days accom!)
