Hope you can help with the below. Here’s my situation:
I currently have 450,000 QF points (more to come) that I want to use to fly to London (via Dubai), J Class, 2 x pax, next year circa June/July. On the return journey, I want a stopover in Dubai for 3-4 days.
I really don’t care how I secure J class, or even if the way I redeem points may not be that economical (although I’m open to suggestions that help me save points). What really matters is that we fly J Class there and back, and can stopover in Dubai on the return journey. I also DON’T want to purchase an economy ticket with QF and hope for an international upgrade (if I want to gamble I’ll buy a lotto ticket).
- Should I use expertflyer to create alerts for the dates I want to secure? AND
- Do I need to book separate tickets if I want that stop over in Dubai; e.g., one ticket from MEL - DXB, then another DXB to LHR, etc…?
