So if you have not planned your holiday for 2019, now’s the best time to think about it especially if you are planning on visiting Australia, New Zealand or London. I personally find going to USA via Australia a little bit of a detour, and the fares aren’t that great either (you could get SIA premium economy sale fares at that level).

Exception business class sale fares

Qantas is also running a Business class sale right after the Black FLYDay sale, starting from 25 November 2018.

Qantas Business Suites – found on the A330 and B787

The fares look very incredible, so I’ll be very curious as to how much availability are they putting out.

Best time for oneworld mileage runs

Apparently there is no minimum stay required, so if you have nothing on between 24-31 December 2018, this might be the perfect time to do a mileage run.

Qantas Frequent Flier members will get 7,800 points and 120 status credits for each sector. A return flight will earn you 240 status credits, a third of the 700 status credits required to achieve Gold.

If you are a Cathay Pacific Marco Polo Club member, you will get 60 Club Points for each sector, which really isn’t that great given that you will need 600 points in a year to achieve Gold status.

British Airways gives out 140 tier points per sector, which is pretty generous, but the only problem with BA is that you will need to take BA flights on top of racking up the tier points too.
