As you book each flight, the points will be progressively deducted from your QFF account. Each time, the points deduction may take a day or two to show in your account.
Eventually, as you make more bookings, the points cost will max out at 132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K and further flight bookings will no longer affect the balance. It’s probably never too early to start booking, as you may run the risk of availability disappearing at some point.
I agree with one caveat ... changing too much eats away a lot of points in change fees. And also some carriers have this crazy rule that certain flights can only be booked as “new” bookings.
I have had trouble with CX where i could book a segment for a fresh booking but the QF agent could not add it to my existing half-booked J OWA.
