redemption nominees??

Dec 2, 2006
Hi everyone
My first post here, wish i had known about this forum before.
Ok, I am with Krisflyer, i only have 13,728 points left, having lost around 20,000 over the last 20 months.
I am now married and my wife has 2 kids over 13yrs old, i signed up my wife on to krisflyer, she does not have many points at all.
We are all going overseas in 4 weeks time, roughly 36,000 points(9000 points each)
I am not too clear on this redemption nominee thing,
If i were to sign up the kids as members, is it possible that i could nominate all those points to myself or another family member, for example i transfer all those points to my name for use at a later date?? thus just about saving us the cost of one adult return trip next time we travel.
Or is there ther another way to go about this?
I had thoughts of starting afresh and signing up with Royal Orchid
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to AFF redct12 :)

Nope. It just means can issue awards in someone else's name. You cannot pool miles for an award with Kris Flyer.
