My husband is currently a Skywards Gold member and has a small balance of 80k points. He is flying business this year twice (Africa and Nepal) on Emirates as per company preference.
What I have noticed is the value of points he earns on skywards vs Qantas returns. Also noticed that some if his points expire sooner. Should we switch to Qantas ff for his work trips and use his small skywards balance for a trip to NZ so that they are not wasted?
As a family we are saving our points for a trip to Japan and have a Qantas balance of 135k. Sadly he doesn’t have gold status on Qantas. If we did decide to switch the earning on these flights would we ask the company to book via Qantas onto the Emirates flight?
Or should we just stick to Emirates since we already have a balance and gold status?
