    Interesting how the velocity points are non-linear with fare. This is an aspect I feel velocity could simplify and thus improve trust with their customers. Since they don't publish full details of award costs they should (IMHO) have a simple rule that customers can understand. That way the customer can easily decide whether points or cash is good value.

    Contrast this with airpoints. For awards solely on NZ metal (other than discounted business elite awards), the cost is 1 airpoint for $1. Easy to follow and understand.

    QFF using fixed points costs is also easy to follow and understand, although requires some knowledge or lookup of flight distance, so not as easy as US-based programs for example (with their broader zones).

    I agree here, the value of a point seems quite variable and does not seme to be any rhyme or reason to how they work it out.
