From 3 people I know, working at the same place (big name organisation), all pretty much on the same pay, around the same age, similar credit history (no home/car loans) and under 10k credit card limits. They all applied to ANZ, BW, NAB and AMEX under the current offers at the same time, all requ...

Except that BW put a 50-transaction limit per day, and have closed some accounts that have exploited this. (look up the thread on AFF).
Mar 09, 2015, 11.03 AM / Qantas Cash vs Bankwest Qantas card: which earns the most points?
Nice review. It's interesting how VA priced these flights, SYD/MEL/BNE-AKL is cheaper than SYD-MEL! Out of NZ the fares for inderict flights are marginally higher than direct ones, so one could easily maximise on points/SC by taking a detour (e.g. fly to BNE via MEL, MEL via SYD etc.).

The tray in that photo is placed the wrong way (food away from the imaginery passenger). And that orange/red colour in the arm rest yells cheap. Just sayin'

Great reporting. Meanwhile in NewsCorp wasteland, someone titled their report which is riddled with inaccuracies: would you pay 5.5k to fly backwards?

Right, so without knowing the travel dates of the OP nor class of travel this becomes a guessing exercise. I initially thought the OP was interested in the best value in business. There are AA one way fares via LAX (LAX-SYD on QF) for about 1900AUD in economy, jumps to 6.5k AUD in business. But...

Right, and so someone suggesting an alternative option gets negged for what reason exactly? There are no good value fares that the OP could use ex-LHR to SYD via the US and still accrue QFF points/status. What good is it to suggest say a 5000 dollar AA fare in economy when a J fare is a mu...

The reply was about best value at an absolute level. Loyalty to QF, or to any other carrier FF program, is meaningless if the options for one travels present poor value as a whole. Dr., how about you actually search for AA flights ex-LHR and see how much the OP will need to fork out in order to ...

Your best bet is to forgo earning on QFF. Air New Zealand have a great one way business fare via LAX (so LHR-LAX (stop) LAX-AKL-SYD) about 5.6k AUD You can book this through expedia UK or Air NZ direct. Add the LAX-LAS flights on Virgin America (First class have a special now, about 300USD retu...
