I've just read an article in a 'business travel' magazine, that the Australian Federal Police (AFP) actually sell QFF points to their agents at a "rebate price"...

I thought Qantas prohibited the sale of points to anyone....

Who knows of this practice?

Is this right?

(one rule for civvies... another for the feds!)....

My guess is that it is not actually a "sale" of points, more a "you want the points, you cough up for some of the airfare" type deal.

A bit harsh though if you are a cop travelling on business.
