Hi, I’m looking at booking a RTW Ticket using 140,000 Qantas Freq Flyer Points.
I have read a recent article on Points Hack regarding this.
Could somebody please clarify the following for me:
. The article in Points Hack says you can fly a maximum of 35,000 miles. However, elsewhere I read 34,000 miles. Which one is correct. Can’t find any reference on Qantas FF site.
. If I include say a flight from Los Angeles to London and say it stops over in Houston. Does the mileage counted to the RTW Ticket include the total miles flown via say the longer route via Houston, or does the mileage accrued to the RTW Ticket get based on the direct route from LAX to LON?
. The recommendation in the Points Hack article is to use the Multi City Qantas booking engine rather than the One World RTW booking engine. Why is this so?
. And when I use the Multi City Qantas Booking engine, looking for classic flights using my Freq Flyer points, it keeps accumulating the points required and well and truly exceeds the 140,000 points required for a RTW trip that I am considering. When does the booking engine then reduce the points to 140,000 points required.
I hope somebody can help me with the above questions.
