Qantas passengers can now book on the Red Roo's new joint network with Emirates for travel starting from 31 March.
The move follows last week's interim authorisation granted by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, allowing Qantas to sell codeshared Emirates flights (bearing QF numbers) to Dubai and then onwards to the UK, Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Qantas is also selling tickets on Emirates' Melbourne and Brisbane flights to Singapore, Melbourne flights to Kuala Lumpur and Sydney to Bangkok, as well as onward flights from those Asian airports to Dubai.
But you won't find a similar cosy arrangement offered for Qantas and Emirates flights to New Zealand, as the ACCC hasn't granted trans-Tasman approval.
Nor has the experience for Qantas frequent flyers been fully revealed.
While you'll earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points and status credits on Emirates flights sold by Qantas, the airline is still to advise how many points or status credits you'll earn on those flights, along with extras like status bonuses for Platinum, Gold or Silver members.
Australian Business Traveller is told that's all in the 'still to be worked out' basket, and we'll share the details as soon as we have them.
Also on the to-do list is an alignment of pricing between Qantas and Emirates so that booking the same flight through either airline delivers the same ticket price.
Qantas and Emirates are still working off their own fare structures, resulting in different pricing. That's soon due to change as the airlines fine-tune their fare tables and settle on what's expected to be fairly competitive rates.
