    According to the Qantas earn table:



    I need to get into Phuket on the 4/5/6 so if I book an o/n class, I get full FF earn?

    Per the earning table

    Code:
    EGKLMNOQRSV - Discount Economy* - 0.25
    I think that is a no - only 25% on o/n

    Probably wasnt too clear. I need to get to HKT, but since BA only goes SYD-BKK-SYD on BA9/10, would this fit into the exception rule?

    My understanding is that you will have no problems booking to fly into Bangkok or Singapore for that matter with BA and earn 1 point, but your flight into Phuket might not.

    - Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne, Perth or Sydney and London or Frankfurt via Bangkok or Singapore
    - Adelaide, Brisbane, Darwin, Melbourne, Perth or Sydney and Bangkok or Singapore

    will earn a Base Rate of 1.

    Jetstar can get you SYD-HTK on 4/May with a Jet Flex fare earning QFF 1 for 1, or Star Class @ business class rates.

    You can purchase the MEL-SYD connection, seperately from your preferred carrier, with SYD MCT in mind.

    Excellent...Base Rate of 1 is great.

    Sadly, I need to be in Phuket start of business on the 4th. JQi only flies M/W/F. This is a bummer, full Y SCC would have been great. Also...not a strech to upgrade to Starclass for the D SCC earn.

    But alas, this means I fly on the Friday, and leave the following Friday, adding 4 extra days away. So no dice.

    Due the the Qantas/BA Joint Services Agreement (JSA), services with Qantas and BA on the "Kangaroo Route" as specified in the airline earning table quoted by the OP and highlighted by littl_flier are shared. This basically means equal earnings for FFers of either BAEC and QFF on BQ/QF services on these routes.

    So point earning for a QFFer travelling discount economy on BA SYD/BKK is 1:1.

    I guess unlike the arrangement between AA/BA on the LHR-NYC route people would choose evenly between QF and BA with equal earning - with equal earning on LHR-NYC between AA and BA , AA would have to have significantly cheaper prices due to the poor product...
