    Anyone know which route acrues the most SC's? MEL-LAX-DC or MEL-SIN-LHR-DC?

    Probably the latter, but it's a longer trip. Is it worth it? Heh! :) Trying to plan to get my platinum! Have another standard trip MEL-SIN-MEL soon too ..


    Thanks ..

    What class of accommodation? The journey is 4,000 miles further so , unless u are desperate to spend time sat in a metal tube, I would stick to MEL-LAX-IAD

    SC earning in discount economy is 65 , full economy 130
    SC earning in J LAX-MEL and F on AA MEL-IAD is 300
    SC earning in J LAX-MEL and J on QF codeshare on AA is 260

    Going via LHR

    Economy is 100 / 200
    business is 400

    Not sure which class yet. Waiting for our agency to get back to me. You're rihgt, may not be much to benefit from it and I hate flying. Only reason would be to get some extra SC's.

    Thanks! Crossing my fingers they give a decent class.

    The only reasons I would see for going via SIN and LHR is if using an ATW ticket or if wanting to go in premium economy using BA WT+.

    Another way to maximize SC's especially if travelling in business class, is to buy a Circle Pacific fare, but unfortunately from MEL its just too far for DCIR22. So you could start in SYD or BNE and route SYD/BNE-LAX-IAD-ORD-NRT-SYD/BNE and add on a domestic cheapie to/from MEL.

    But I would not both if travelling in discount economy.
