Due to limited frequency ex. DRW, I'll be flying into SYD about 8pm on Sat 1 Nov for an evening commitment on Sun 2 Nov. All things being equal, I'll have around 20 hours to spare.

Status run or airport hotel?

Suggestions for either option appreciated.

Edit: There's no immediate status benefit to be gained, just a small contribution to the lifetime total. If I did it the status run would really be just for the fun of it and to say I'd done my first.

An overnight status run SYD-MEL-AKL-SYD would "save" on accommodation but you won't be able to afford any misconnection in SYD or MEL...
 
The Qantas Premier Platinum Card delivers up to 100k Qantas Points, 75 bonus Status Credits, complimentary lounge invitations and travel insurance. All this with a reduced first-year annual fee of $199.

I looked at that, but being Saturday the last SYD-MEL service is 20:15 and I think it's too tight on the SYD connection to be worth the risk.

JQ529 departing SYD at 20:25 and on the same booking as the connecting AKL flight if possible?
