I'd like to fly a friend from Singapore to Melbourne return using my Qantas FF points. She would be travelling alone. Are their any FF gotchas in this?
If using Qantas FF points for this trip, then you need to be aware of the program rules that state you can only redeem flights for eligible family members. The terms and conditions posted on the Qantas web site define the relationships that are considered eligible family members.powervideo said:I'd like to fly a friend from Singapore to Melbourne return using my Qantas FF points.

Having said that, QF don't seem very strict on enforcing the rule: Maybe she can be your cousin...'Eligible Family Member' of a member means any person the Member can demonstrate, to the reasonable satisfaction of Qantas, as being related to that Member in any of the ways described below:
- Domestic Partner/De Facto
- Child, including foster & step-child
- Half Brother/Sister
- First cousin
If they have any sense, they will launder the points through AA and save a fortune in fuel surcharges, avoid the requirement to be a family member, and be earning towards lifetime AA status (Gold = 1 million miles, Plat = 2 million miles).simongr said:One thing that I dont understand is that our business uses a corporate Amex card for all possible payments in NZ. The card is in the name of one of our staff in NZ. Points accrue to a FF account and the points are used to fly any/all staff. I have never understood how this works - and it does. They recently flew 12 staff members to Oz from NZ.
