it will be the airport/airline minimum connecting time. Somewhere (generally) between 1-2.5 hours (the latter for arrivals into the usa for example).I'm aware that when booking USDM flights, the max transit if 24 hours - however is there a minimum transit time?
Whilst I appreciate from a real world point of view you don't want to be cutting it too fine - wondering if there is an official policy
The 90k miles USDM will cost you USD1693 including the 7.5% tax charge...I'm not sure if you're including that in your ++ or you only mean taxes associated with the flights.is someone able to check the following please?
SYD-HKG rtn J
- 90k USDM (South Pacific - North Asia). With current 100% promo = USD1,575 (plus any taxes)
- 60k Alaska Miles. with current 40% bonus - 39k (+15,600) $1,072.50 + 5k (+1k) - 137.50 = USD1210 (plus any taxes)
anything obvious i'm missing?
in many ways, USDM is the same as Qantas when it comes to redeeming awards. you need to find the availability you want.I see many are booking with USDM to an end destination but routing via various cities to get there, is this done by the operator?.
Sorry i am not sure what you mean…. can you explain a bit more.Under the rules you cannot, and they are fairly consistent with that. Assuming you have a LHR-DXB flight in that itinerary, you could add KUL-JKG and not fly the last sector.
you cannot have a double open jaw.Sorry i am not sure what you mean…. can you explain a bit more.
For a bit more clareification i am using Qantas points to fly emirates from FCO - DXB
provided you only have one stopover for your entire itinerary (in addition to your destination), you are fine.Would BNE/HKG/CDG stopover then on return HKG stopover then BNE fit within the rules?.
Im tossing up wether to go out of HKG or BNE have enough points/miles to do both.
you can choose flights that suit you - as i mentioned in post #1051 you find the flights you want (same as you would using the QF tool), and call USDM to have them book and ticket. It is sometimes helpful to have alternatives in case USDM can't see the same availability as you might have found via the QF/BA/JL tools.Looking at USDM rules it doesn't say whether a mix of OW airlines is allowed to destination.
We are at an age where we like to have a stopover on long haul flights where possible.
Our destination is CDG from OZ, we need to stopover on return in HKG.
Can see better flight times via HKG / DXB both less than 24hr overnight departure to destination CDG but there are other connections that leave within hours.
So if I find the USDM flights (with less than 24hours departure) that suit us better so we can break the journey overnight would they allow this (if they have them) or would operator choose other quicker connection flights?.
