Australia to Turkey with Qantas points - How do I redeem this?

I am looking to book a return Qantas FF rewards flight, Mel/Syd to turkey, in Aug-Sep next year. The qantas flights go via Heathrow so they are nearly double the flying time than via Doha or Dubai. Apparently I can redeem my points for a Qatar Air flight as they are a part of the One Workd Alliance but I can’t figure out how to do this via the Qantas site. Any ideas. All help with be appreciated.

Hi Cherylk,

You can look for Classic Award seats by clicking on the “Classic Award” button before clicking the search button on the Qantas website. Similar to searching for a normally paid ticket.

You could also try the Google app for award flights
or the British Airways Executive Club site.

I’d be looking to fly Emirates due to it being Qantas’ preferred partner so the points cost is lower.

But if you’re points rich, Qatar would has a much nicer hard product.

You can book both EK & QR direct through qantas FF online, you’ll most likely find EK availability to be much better.
