    I'm looking at the innovative use of a NRT origin DONE3 fare which effectively will get me a trip to Asia, a separate trip to North America and finally a separate trip to Europe. The in-between commuting I'll do by a mixture of QF award flights and VS points.

    I'm wondering if anyone has any idea of general availability using VS points on NZ. Specifically I'm looking at SFO-AKL-SYD in 05/2008 and SYD-AKL-SFO or LAX in 08/2008. Of course, I'm not ready to try to book the SFO-SYD leg yet and I know it's too early to book the second trip. I should be able to do so 11-12 months in advance. Using dummy dates is there any way I can check on EF to get a warm feeling that what I want to do is likely to be achievable? Into what class do VS points book on J NZ?

    I'm anxious to get a good feel for it before I commit to the DONE3 because I don't want to find that I can't use my VS points and have to fork out real dollars to get to and from the SFO stopover.

    Hope this makes sense :shock: It does to me, but then it would, wouldn't it! :D
