    Hi guys,

    Just looking for some advise.

    I am flying to SGN in October for my honeymoon and would like to treat the wife to her first international J flight.

    We fly domestic J most of the time by purchasing Y and then upgrading with points which works for us the majority of time.

    Just trying to find out the best way to so this, I have access to about 450000 points so I thought an ASA would be an easy option. I realise that QF doesn't fly to SGN so I thought an ASA to SIN would be the go and then a quick jump to SGN by a local carrier. However searching around the dates I need shows no available J seats???

    Am I better buying a non sale ticket which is a few hindered more than the sale ticket and rolling the dice to get a point upgrade?? Only a bronze so not sure how my chances to SIN would be?

    Any advice?? Thanks in advance

    Have you also looked at MEL-SIN and BNE-SIN?

    Also worth trying Bangkok.

    Use points to get to SIN/BKK (you could book to one and come back from the other if necessary, just do two one ways) and maybe just book revenue fares for the SIN/BKK-SGN flights, probably the best way to do it while still using points.

    Can you do a BA from SYD to BKK?
    OR fly QF to MNL and something to SGN?
    There is also MH or CX.

    BA and CX flights should come up in the QF search engine.

    BA doesn't fly SYD-BKK, only SYD-SIN.
