Premium Economy

RouteLead-in cash price (return)Lead-in Classic Plus price (return)
Melbourne to Los Angeles$3,199179,300 points + $510
Sydney to London$3,799179,600 pts + $1,106
Perth to Los Angeles$3,549201,900 points +$549
Sydney to New York$4,399249,300 points + $660
  • The Sydney-London route has Classic Plus cheaper than Classic Rewards (usually 216,800 points + fees and taxes return). Note the higher cash co-payment which includes the hefty UK APD tax on departure from London.
  • The Melbourne-Los Angeles route with Classic Plus is slightly higher than Classic (usually 162,600 pts + fees and taxes for return Premium Economy Classic Reward). We’d consider the Classic Plus rates of around 177k points + fees and taxes a fair trade-off for increased availability.


RouteLead-in cash price (return)Lead-in Classic Plus price (return)
Sydney to Auckland$1,19962,500 points + $263
Sydney to Nadi$2,599154,700 points + $279
Melbourne to Seoul$3,999224,000 points + $668
Sydney to London$8,949483,600 points + $1,696
  • The Sydney-Auckland (and Melbourne-Auckland) routes are considerably cheaper with Classic Plus than with Classic Rewards (usually 83,000 points + fees and taxes, return).
  • As expected, Business Classic Plus isn’t cheaper than Classic Rewards for all the other routes.

To book these Qantas flight deals, head to the Qantas website and book your flights before the offer ends on 20 June. Classic Plus fares can be upgraded to Premium Economy, Business Class or First Class (from Business only).
