Hi, I have 800,000 Qantas points and am wanting to get from Melbourne to New York in business class or above. What is the best way to utilise these points to get 2 people there? I am looking at taking the shortest route possible. Thanks
From Qantas website, it shows that the shortest trip you can do is MEL-LAX-JFK (22 + hrs). 2nd shortest option is MEL-SYD-JFK (about 2 hrs extra).
Other partner airlines bookable through Qantas website include Cathay Pacific (via Hong Kong) or Emirates (via Dubai). These are 26-30 hrs 1 way.
As you may know, flights to USA is one of the most popular flights for redemption. Hence, a bit of flexibility wouldn’t hurt too when planning your trip. All 3 airlines have good business class products so its always good to have more options.
