If anyone has come across a status run that is good value for money then this could be the thread to post it.
It always depresses me to see how much cheaper SIN-PER-SIN is against PER-SIN-PER.BlacKnox said:Not sure whether they represent good value or not, but (for those interested/ able) Qantas in Singapore just released some new Australia day specials. Just go to http://www.qantas.com.au/regions/dyn/home/qualifier-region-sg for a looksee.
Mal said:LHR-MAD-LIS (return) using Iberia - Just under $AU300 for 100 SC's. Something people might keep in mind if in London. Although from what I've read, flying on Iberia can be a real experience!
I will check them out, and if they look OK I will post them here.Kiwi Flyer said:If you check out BA forum on FT there are better 4-flight runs involving IB with cheap BA fares.
You have to search very hard to find these. Don't you also need expert flyer which also requires a monthly subscription. The number of people with ready access to these fares would be very small.Kiwi Flyer said:In the US you can also do better with multi-segment runs on AA (particularly if you can find cheap F).
I would be very interested in cheap F fares on AA internally... Any hints?? I am primarily looking at Anchorage - Chicago - New York.JohnK said:You have to search very hard to find these.

Unfortunately there is no great value $/SC in domestic fares.oz_mark said:I'd like to know what the best value domestic fares are (Like is SYD-CBR business class good value compared to other SC earning opportunities? )
Presently sitting in CX HKG first class lounge having just arrived on AY91 from BKK.JohnK said:BKK-HKG-BKK business flex (D class) airfare on Finnair. Airfare is ~A$446(13,390 baht) earning 120 SC's at A$3.72/SC. Finnair flies BKK-HKG-BKK on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Times vary depending on season. In April depart BKK 14:40 arrive HKG 18:30 and returning depart HKG 21:25 arrive BKK 23:10. This flight then continues on to HEL non stop.
Agree. Even most of the sale fares provide poor value SC run, unless you already needed to fly.Mal said:SCRUNs have been ruined by the Fuel surcharges. Most of the time domestic flights are around $10/Sc. Absolutely pathetic.
Agree and I'm certainly interested. I do however understand why he doesn't want to post it publicly :cry: :cry: :cry:oz_mark said:Pretty much the same as I had figured - there's just not much value available on the domestic sectors. Not sure what Mal's little plan is, I might have to try figure it out
