    If it includes taxes those are pretty reasonable prices. Plus you’d assume availability would be great.

    That said spending 10 hours stuck in a tube with the kind of people who would be excited about a QFF only flight would probably cause me to have a meltdown…

      So it’s plus taxes…

      Points required (one way, per person)
      Economy 35,000 points plus A$182*
      Premium Economy 54,000 points plus A$257*
      Business 72,000 points plus A$272*
      First 108,000 points plus A$272*

      Not terrible but it’s only a one way flight with the A380 the return uses a smaller plane so there might be a bit of difficulty getting a seat on the way back. https://www.ausbt.com.au/qantas-opens-up-an-entire-airbus-a3...

    Think someone tried to post it as a deal earlier today and the thread title had tax amounts in addition to the points.

    I believe it is just their normal cost for a one way redemption, but lots more availability than usual (although after all the articles, who knows).

    I think there was a lot of unhappiness regarding the inability to redeem points, particularly for the lower tier members? Hopefully this should relieve congestion a lot

    What would be the per dollar value of points on economy redeemed this way?

      Return economy flights Melbourne to Tokyo (Narita) on Qantas are currently on special from $795 return around that date.

      So ~$400 one way, less $182 in taxes, means you are getting $218 for 35k points, or .6c per point. Not great value IMO.

        Thanks, that's not great value then
