Hi all, if anyone can point me in the right direction from a previous post, much appreciated!
I’m flying in to London somewhere around the period of 14-22 July from Sydney and looking to return in the week of 6-12 Aug (somewhat flexible). I currently utilise flybuys and have about 170k of Velocity point banked. Suffice to say I’ve missed the boat to actually use my points for anything meaningful, other than maybe a car hire as I’m heading through from UK to Germany and Italy for a few weeks for a wedding.
It appears that through flybuy Travels, I can at the moment purchase a return flight Sydney-London with Emirates for around $AUD2000 and receive 15x the points for it. So my question is, would this be a better option than paying around the same price for a Virgin ticket and subsequent Velocity points, or Etihad for a cheaper fare + Etihad Guest Miles?
