Has there been an increase in Qantas FF redemption point cost?

Hi

A month ago I was looking at booking return flights in Business Class from Sydney to Rome using QANTAS FF points. When I was selecting flights through the QANTAS site I was finding I could book the return flights for 1 person, 12 months in advance, for approx. 155,000/160,000 QFF points. Those flights were all on Emirates business class, Sydney-Dubai, Dubai-Rome and vice versa for the return.

Now, 1 month later, when I try to book the same flights 12 months in advance it’s quoting in 200,000+. I think when I checked a month ago I was looking at June 2018, and I’ve also looked at June 2018 now and still the hike in points.

Any idea of reasoning for the points increase?

Also, does anyone know how to get to Europe (any city) from Sydney return in Business Class for 150,000/160,000 QFF points?

Cheers,
John

Your lower figure may have been a mixed class booking.

  • You’re right.

    I managed to find the fares again, however only this time noticed that if you click on the ‘i’ in the fare box, it states that the Sydney-Dubai leg of the flight is in economy. How disappointing..

Hi,

I haven’t heard of an increase in redemption costs.

SYD-DXB-Rome costs 128k for 1 way business class.

  • Hi w-hiew

    I know that’s what the ‘using points calculator’ states. Although on multiple occasions when I went on the qantas website and chose the flights to book, specific flights worked out at approx 160,000 return for business class. Unfortunately I can’t seem to find these same flights anymore, 1 month later..

  • Sydney-Dubai (no stopover longer than 24 hours) – Rome with Emirates will costs 128k in Business.

    Will cost more if stopover more than 24 hrs.

    Sydney-XXX-Rome (or EU) with oneworld airlines (e.g. Cathay or Qatar) cost a bit different (more than Qantas/Emirates redemption).

    June 2018 award seats would be mostly taken by now. At least the more direct flights would be.

    The more indirect the flights, the total flying distance would increase, increasing the redemption costs.
