Hi Point Gurus,
I am looking at using points to book two business class flights return from Brisbane BNE to Philippines MNL. The flights from BNE to MNL would be around 1-3 november 2017 and the return flight would need to be roughly around 8 or 9th of november 2017
I am a little confused as to which points options are best to use in the scenario. I have 300K Qantas Points, 220K lifemiles, 100K Amex Plat CC points and approx 2 million Westpac Black Points.
I am aware of that AA has an a reasonable deal on purchasing points at the moment but would prefer to use some of points I already have accumulated if possible.
It would be great if I could get some advice regarding the best value options in using points to book these. I have attempted using the AA online portal and there is no availability whatsoever for these routes during this time, similarly with Avianca LM online portal too (except economy). However, there appears to be some very limited flights when looking on the United airlines sight. I have looked through Qantas award booking and there appears to be flights out available but nil for the return leg.
We will be staying at the Shangri La for a wedding it would be even be better if anyone has advice with accommodation and points redemption for accommodation etc here also?
Thanks for any tips in advance!
