I have approx 450000 velocity points and 400000 Qantas points and 150k amex reward points. I am keen to use them to / from Japan
Problem 1 . Only a bronze Qantas member and the 308 days v 323 days is making me think I’m better getting an economy reward seat and requesting an upgrade? Rather than risk waiting for a full reward.
Problem 2. Virgin seem to have very little availability for reward flights. while Krisflyer have business seats at 83000 each way. My velocity points will be devauled if I transfer? And if I transfer to Krisflyer I am guessing I’ll have to use the points so can’t hold out for a Qantas upgrade anyway.
Also are velocity points relatively useless…so should I just transfer them to Krisflyer and cut my losses.
Basically what’s my best options to get there and back…
Ideally I would love to be on the Qantas BNE/ SYD/KIX FLIGHT UP and the NRT/ BNE flight back but really want the overnighter to be business class.
Thanks a bunch
