How to use Qantas points to fly Cathay Pacific business class from Milan to Hong Kong?


I’m trying to use Qantas FF points to redeem two business class awards on Cathay Pacific flying from Milan to Hong Kong (then onwards Hong Kong to Melbourne), I can see Cathay Pacific does fly direct from Milan Malpensa to Hong Kong, however the only flights I’m seeing for June 2019 are flights from Milan to London on British Airways, then Cathay Pacific London to Hong Kong.

Does anyone know if you just can’t redeem Qantas awards on Cathay Pacific for this leg, or maybe this is a temporary issue (with Cathay Pacific’s recent frequent flyer changes)?

Thanks in advance,

Try Rome-HKG and Zurich-HKG as alternate routes.
