In a related question, I read one guy saying he needed 20000 Star Alliance Miles to travel MEL-AKL. After checking the UA Star Allliance chart at UA Award Chart
it states that an economy return within AUS/NZ is 20000 miles - Would this be possible from PER-AKL even though the mileage is DOUBLE that of MEL-AKL??
Don't you just love the fact that we and our NZ cousins are all thrown in together in the same "region". Your question is thus answered "yes". That is why it's easy to see exactly why some people love the UA program...all you need to do is find the *A airlines to fly you between any two cities in either Australia and/or NZ and 20K FF points is UA's....
