I want to use points to fly Sydney - Glasgow - Sydney in November this year.
We can fly Emirates over there going Sydney - Dubai - Glasgow, but it looks like the only route back using points is Qantas/BA going Glasgow - London - Melbourne - Sydney. Does anyone know why or how I can fly Emirates back to Sydney?
Hi! I assume that the return flight isn’t available due to points availability for your dates.
In that case you don’t have many options. This is what you could do:
- Increase your flexibility in your travel dates to see if you find an award seat
- Do some more in-depth routes on Qantas partners that maybe Qantas didn't search for - for example Finnair is operating to Helsinki from Edinburgh. Try and get creative with your own research.
- Continue to monitor availability as your travel date gets closer. Often availability can change in the weeks and days prior to travel, and you could get a better routing by paying the change fee to change your booking.
