I've been doing advance phantom bookings now for a few months and the day finally arrived, T-353. I got on the QFF site and booked my J Award flight from Perth to LA (OK through Brisbane). No problem. So maybe through Sydney or Melb and on an A380 would have been nice but at this stage I'm on a refurb 747 with row 14 seats upstairs and I'm a very happy camper. Sure the options are limited but if you are prepared to be flexible and get in early, you can get good value from your points.
