Sadly not. Not sure if possibly you could say do a LHR-DOH-MEL-CBR multi trip, and then do the MEL-CBR portion into the future. I did that once with a QF LAX-JFK QF flightAny chance of buying seats solely on MEL-CBR or vice versa? (It may be covered in the linked article, but the article is paywalled.)
Just read the article. Interesting, indeed. Someday, Q-Suites, hopefully.

I would have thought a morning departure from DOH arriving into MEL early morning would be more sensible.
What lounges would be open at that time for pax in MEL?
Those policy hours only (of late at least) apply to QF metal flightsI'd think the QF would ...

I made 3 bookings with QF points incorporating these new services:Qantas is showing some award availability exDOH to CBR. Taxes are ridiculous! None showing on Alaska Airlines (yet).
Exciting day for us Behrens!
