Scenario 1:
Qantas build upon their alliance with MasterCard to deliver a spend orientated route to FF loyalty status, along with other minor enhancements.

Scenario 2:
Qantas reveal the culmination of their vast investment in recent technology trends and announced their KangaCoin ICO, being the first airline in the world to introduce a distributed ledger to their FF program.

Scenario 3:
Qantas announce themselves as the buyer of Affinity’s share in Velocity, creating one FF program to rule them all.

We all know what this means.

Lower prices for economy cabin redemptions will be offset by higher prices for premium cabin redemptions.

Welcome to the brave new world of dynamic pricing.

Usually 12000 QFFP

In fact, ADL is *annoyingly* just outside of 600 miles whereas you can fly to BNE, SYD or MEL for 8000 QFFP.

The fact that it is slightly over at 8400 QFFP makes me wonder if they are fattening the number of zones so that you pay for a distance closer to what you actually travel, rather than a more broader target of, say, 35000 QFFP for anywhere between 4801 and 5800 miles (all in Y of course).

I can't seem to get any premium fares to come up. I'll keep searching
I too am seeing the 8,400 number for CBR-ADL and 18,000 CBR-PER.

There is an update going on for sure. Reward calendar giving false results, showing only Business seats but when you click there are First seats. SYD-DFW still pricing at 168000 in F and $478.72

If I click on e.g. the 8,400 pts CBR-ADL it's advertising I still see the old pricing chart in the actual booking engine
