I’m transferring my current stash of Velocity points to Krisflyer and redeeming 2x FCO to PER (J) in late-April for my wife and I.
We have around 300,000 Velocity points at the moment. However, I’ll only have around ~40,000 Velocity points leftover after purchasing the flight home, and we still need to get to Europe in the first place.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to buying points to Europe? Given we are booking late, we’re flexible with where we arrive.
Haven’t found anything suitable with Alaska, did find some availability with AA, but it’s proving quite expensive - would require at least AU$4,000 plus taxes for a one way trip for two people.
Also open to booking a cash economy ticket for a shorter leg (e.g. Perth to Singapore or Hong Kong); and then buying points for a longer leg to Europe, if that works out significantly more cost effective.
