I am starting from scratch and based in Perth.
I have never had a FF program. The wife has Qantas through Woolworths shopping card, but has never used the points.
I can see myself taking a two week golf holiday with three buddies for the next few years. We have penciled in Bangkok/Pattaya travelling with Thai Airways.
I am about to book a holiday travelling with Virgin to Phuket.
The wife an I go to Phuket or Singapore yearly. Usually we fly Singapore Airlines or Thai Airways, though this year the Virgin option is better.
I also travel for work 2-3 times per year from Perth to the Eastern States and am offered Virgin or Qantas flights.
Currently, credit cards are with Bankwest, though able to move to a different CC if that will add points to the FF program, but which one?
I am looking for the occasional upgrade, but mostly the use of a lounge to relax in before travelling (domestic or international) or when transiting in Singapore.
So which FF flyer program to join?
Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated, before I join something.
