My husband and i have finally racked up enough qantas points so that we can look to upgrade our selves to business class. Little did i know how tricky its going to be to actually use our points.
i believe that qantas have now stopped flying to dubai. Its operated by emirates not qantas so can t use the points to upgrade.
I dont want to have to travel via london to get to europe but this seem to be the only way as its actually a qantas flight …
When i called up qantas he tried searching all sorts of options and even tried searching to go via hong kong that didnt work either.
Apparently it has to be a qantas flight to use points to upgrade. even then you can put in your bid and then a few days before is when you will find out if you can fly depending on your status. we are both bronze … so chances are unlikely.
i think this has all been a waste of time for me and i think i should look at changing to another awards partner like krisflyer.
can anyone assist on who and where to go to if there is an option not via london thats going to book an economy flight and then upgrade using points.
We are looking to go from Melb to Athens or even Italy from mid july to mid june 2018.
