I’m looking at claiming business class rewards to uk (or close by europe) in February / March next year, but I won’t know closer to the date when I actually want to fly - I can get it right within a few weeks- to a month now - I will try to hit those dates, but I might need to move them slightly.
Should I book the flights now to lock them in and if I have to make any changes, what are the chances of making the changes? is this possible? It will be a combo of qantas and virgin reward claims, and possibly on their affiliate airlines (eg singapore and cathay pacific)
Or am I better off trying to snag a last minute claim maybe in December / January?
