Well a visit to AA.com and you can see that I class earns 1.5 points per mile flown on both BA and CX and 1.25 miles per mile flown

Using the great circle mapper at http://gc.kls2.com/

BKK-HKG is 1048 miles
HKG-LHR is 5994 miles
LHR-GVA is 470 miles

at 1.5 qpoints per miles flown, the HKG-LHR will complete the lack-of-challenge and you will officially be a stealer of candy from babies

Mileage earning will be

1048 * 1.25 as a base member
5994+470+470+5994+1048 * 2.25 as a candy stealer member

Total miles earned is 32,756 approxand total qpoints earned is 22,626

QFF Plat (OW Emerald,) QC Life, 93.24% to Lifetime Silver, NW Plat WPerks, SQ KrisFlyer, UA. SPG Gold, HHonors Gold, Hyatt GP, Avis Pref, Hertz No 1, et al
And I hope the 93.24% refers to the status and not to the lifetime :p .

... On FT it is 93.25%. :shock: :? :p :oops: :(
That's probably due to differences in rounding processes between Oz and US based boards when metric time is taken into account! 8)
There is that metric time again :!: Knew we should have stuck to imperial time. :roll: Easier to remember. :oops:
