I am looking at booking a SYD-PER flight award in January.

When I try to book, there are none available to me as a NB, only business awards. What's to stop me in theory:
1. Transferring points to my Plat "cousin"
2. Getting them to book a Y flight in my name, saving me 18k points ?:confused:

Very little - assuming there is availability shown for your cousin.

I believe "First cousin" is an acceptable person to book you tickets using their points (and also for you to transfer points to as part of the family transfers).

I should also say that if you have a "cousin" then you'd probably also get away with it.

We're all from the same family aren't we in some way, shape or form?
