I fly regulary between SYD and BRU, always with QF/BA via LHR. I am planning my next trip and I'm looking for alternative ways to get to BRU other than via LHR. I will be flying Y and I want to use OW as much as possible to maximise my SC to retain Platinum status. One option I am looking at is via HEL. How does Y in AY compare with QF? Are the chances of an opup better with AY than QF?
