I am gold with Virgin and Qantas.
I currently have 40,000 points with Qantas and 140,000 with Virgin. I am looking to get flights in April for my partner and I from Darwin to Dublin and back but with a stopover in Dubai for a few days. Preferably I would rather fly with Qantas / Virgin or their partners so that we can make use of luggage and lounge facilities but I was also hoping to try and upgrade to business for one part of one of the flights.
Has anyone any ideas in how to best utilise my points please ?
We could fly from Perth if necessary but would rather fly from Darwin but not with a 7 or 8 hour stopover in Adelaide or Melbourne.
Any help is much appreciated.
