Hi everyone, looking to hear experiences for TPRs for those based in Aus. I've heard that PER-BKK often has sales. Does anyone know how cheap they get and are there any other fares available? Ex-EU has some good deals I've seen, DUB-LAX or BUD-Hawaii.

I would like to see whether its cost effective to keep up with OWE via QF or BA.

The question is whether the PER-BKK fare comes back. It actually can be done from most major cities in Australia. We would fly it twice a year which got me to gold in BAEC. Even at full price the F fare on this route was still cheaper than a J fare on QF's Circle Asia fare so really was a no brainer. Prior to finding out about the BA fare we regularly used the circle Pacific fare.

With the disruption of Covid there hasn't been a sale for nearly 3 years. The world is still not back to normal travel patterns so I presume it will be at least a year before it comes back. I hope it does as I want to use it in October 2023.

Have you got the BAEC required 2/4 flights on BA-IB? (as the detailed rules)

What airline for PER-BKK?

PER-SYD is on QF. Only 2 BA segments SYD-SIN-SYD.
SIN-BKK and any other places you visit is on a OW service. We always used CX or JAL. Hopefully at some stage CX will resume on the SIN-BKK and return segments.

Thanks for the info. I've heard the ADL-AKL on QR was a good earner when it was in sale. Is there any truth in this? Current prices seem fairly expensive for what you're getting

AKL-ADL is just over the magical 2000 miles, so earns for example 140 TP is Business rather than 40 for 1999.
