Hi folks, I need 280 SC's by the end of June and was thinking of a trip to Asia (obviously via Singapore) - any suggestions? Any advice much appreciated!
Yes, quite so - all other issues being variable (re $$ I would of course like the best bang for buck!), the one fixed point is my home port, Sydney.
Are there any promo codes available for international flights ATM?
Yes of course. The J fares to SIN make it very unappealing - isn't the better option to fly Singapore Airlines SYD-SIN-HKG in flexisaver Y, which will be $1,095 and will net 200 SC's?
I may be in the position later in the year where I have to try and maximise my status credits to maintain status and was wondering what the best way is to search for indirect flights to help with this? Am thinking of a potential MEL - SYD - BNE -CNS instead of flying direct to try and maximise segments. However on the velocity website it does not show such options. if I try on other third party websites such as Skyscanner it shows me these options but there is no clear information on the fare type.
Hoping that someone may be able to assist?
First time poster here, but long time reader! Thanks to everyone for their contributions on here, I've learnt a lot!
So I've got a few weeks up my sleeve before my Gold review, and I need about 140SC, and want to do most of it in a return trip. I'm based in SYD, but considering this:
SYD-MEL Elevate: 15SC
MEL-OOL vis SYD BC: 110SC
OOL-SYD Elevate: 15SC
Total: 140SC works out to about $1000
Have I worked that out right? Do you think this is the quickest (and cheapest) way to make up 140SC - albeit a bit boring I know.
My last question is about one way miles: are they counted per sector or the total of the trip? (only because it would net me 30 more SC if MEL-OOL via SYD was counted as Zone 2)
