Qantas FF or Marco Polo/AM?

Qantas FF or Marco Polo/AM?

  1. markja3

    Hi – I am currently a QF Platinum member (just renewed so status expires in 2017). Currently living in Sydney but moving to HK in a few months. CX has agreed to status match to Gold tier, but here’s my question: As I fly throughout the region (Asia) regularly, would I be better off allocating miles to my Quantas FF or building points from scratch on Cathay, knowing that Cathay will be the primary airline I fly. It’s difficult to tell which program is better, and my goal is to earn points as fast as possible while enjoying the best benefits. Thanks!

    Welcome [USER=1319]@markja3[/USER] – your answer may depend on where you plan to use the award miles. Annoyingly, Qantas doesn’t seem to publish a chart for using miles on QF & JetStar but has a page where you enter your origin & destination and they’ll tell you how many miles.

    For Asia Miles, they do publish a chart so at least you’ll have an easy reference point to compare to the QF page.

    MMS has a handy page with links to all the major airlines’ award charts (or as close as it gets, in the case of QF). [URL=’http://millionmilesecrets.com/mile-and-point-resources/airline-award-charts/’][U]You can find that page here[/U][/URL]. Good luck!

    I think [USER=7]@Tiffany[/USER] has opined a few times here that the QF program is one of the lowest values for redemptions so if you are going to be flying CX for the forseeable future you might do best to move your points earning there. Depending on what fare categories you book in you should also consider other OW and/or partner programs as they can provide better value!

    Very helpful, thanks. Since I’ll be based in HK, Cathay will be the most frequented. I looked a bit more and Asia MIles seem to offer better value and more flexibility w/ rewards. So long, Qantas!
