Hi

I was hoping with your vast knowledge of everything flyer points related you might be able to advise me how to make use of the 280k in velocity points i have in order to get two people into business or first class return to either europe to east coast usa? Happy to do a points + pay option if it makes the points work better?

Cheers
Justin

Hi Jlykke,

290k Velocity points could  get you to New York 1 way for 2 with the following

Virgin Australia (Business)

SYD-LAX =95500 Velocity

Delta (Business)

LAX-JFK = 49500 Velocity

 

280k Velocity gets you 207k Krisflyer – Could only get you so far too.

Australia-Europe=80750 (112625) Krisflyer (incl 15% online discount)

Australia-New York=85000 (119000) Krisflyer

 

You best option is probably using your $4000 flight centre voucher to buy economy tickets and upgrade with your points.

SYD-LHR Economy $1000 1 way per person

SYD-LAX Economy $1300 1 way per person

SYD-LAX Economy $1500 1 way per person

Upgrade Econ-Business

Australia-Europe 75000 Krisflyer (not incl. online discount)

Australia-USA West Coast 75000

Upgrade Business- First

Australia-Europe 77500 Krisflyer (not incl. online discount)

Australia-USA West Coast 77500

 

Bear in mind that availability of flights are very low.

Good luck.

I forgot to mention i also have $4000 in flight centre vouchers i can use to book towards the flights….. So im guessing singapore airlines will be my only option by transffering Velocity to KF to upgrade via points?
