Point Hacks readers have access to some discounted Business Class fares to Asia, taking advantage of British Airways’ fifth freedom route between Sydney and Singapore (which we have reviewed here), and onward flights throughout Asia with oneworld partners such as Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific.
This deal is especially attractive if you are wanting to fly to Japan in Business Class for cheap, as well as being able to visit cities in Southeast Asia and earn some great frequent flyer miles and status credits along the way. You can get up to five stopovers with this deal.
There is also the opportunity to customise your itinerary to get Qantas Gold status in one trip.
And you’ll get to experience a range of different aircraft, including British Airways’ 777 between Sydney and Singapore, Japan Airlines’ 787 Dreamliner, and Qantas’ A330 service if departing from Perth.

Destinations and prices
This deal is valid for departures from all capital cities.
Here are a couple of example itineraries from three of our largest airports:
Departing Sydney from $3302
Sydney – British Airways to Singapore – Cathay Pacific to Bangkok – Japan Airlines to Tokyo – Japan Airlines to Hanoi – Vietnam Airlines to Singapore – British Airways to Sydney
Departing Melbourne from $3303
Melbourne – Qantas to Sydney – British Airways to Singapore – Japan Airlines to Tokyo Haneda – Japan Airlines to Bangkok – EVA Air to Taipei – Malaysia Airlines to Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia Airlines to Singapore – British Airways to Sydney – Qantas to Melbourne
Departing Perth from $3352
Perth – Qantas to Sydney – British Airways to Singapore – Jetstar Airways to Ho Chi Minh City (Economy Class) – Japan Airlines to Tokyo – Japan Airlines to Bangkok – Japan Airlines to Tokyo – Japan Airlines to Singapore – British Airways to Sydney – Qantas to Perth
In this example, flying to Tokyo twice increases the Status Credits earn with Qantas Frequent Flyer to 700, which will give you Gold status in one trip.
First Class upgrade on Sydney to Singapore leg
This fare can be upgraded to First Class for $895 per direction (i.e. $1790 return). However, the only legs which offer a First Class cabin are the British Airways flights to and from Singapore, so all other sectors would remain in Business Class.
