I’d like to get some advice/suggestions on who I should be collecting points with, either Qantas or Velocity, based who has better reward seat availability with Y+ on flights to/from the US
I’m planning to make a trip to the Orlando, USA sometime in early Feb 2022, so plenty of time to start accumulating points.
I was just there with my partner just last December, so this will be our second trip there, and while the inbound trip in Economy X with Virgin Aus was comfortable enough, the return flight was less than bearable for myself.
While I’d be content with flying SYD-MCO in economy, I will definitely take the trip back home in premium economy (having both journeys in premium would be ideal but can live without!)
Now it’s just a matter of whether I should start getting points with either Qantas or Velocity? For the sake of this lets say we’re starting with 0 points and no status
I’ve churned through some cards previously for J seats in SQ with Velocity points, and this month I will be redeeming another flight in J for an upcoming trip so I’m familiar with Velocity.
Qantas does appear to offer appealing products in regards to their Y+ seats, however I’m not familiar with how good reward seat availability is with them or American Airlines.
I won’t be able to sign up on any Amex offers again until next year, and currently still holding a Citibank card that I’ll cancel after I sign up for a new card sometime soon.Just trying to decide between sign up bonuses for Qantas or Velocity.
If anyone could offer their 2 cents that’d be greatly appreciated!
