QR Z - where to dump the mileage?

Hi there,

I recently couldnīt resist one of QRīs extremely low Z fares from EU to India and booked a little holiday. Now I see that they even have earning partnerships with some *A carriers. However, I am almost exclusively using M&M, which they donīt partner with. The list includes UA, US, ANA and OZ (and BD, maybe that would be a nice in with BA avios at some point?).

Any advice of what would make sense? Or should I just dump it all at QRīs program and maybe fly with them again? My flying is 90% intra-E, with up 5 trips to the US and 2 to Asia each year.

Thanks for any advice!

Unless you are going to fly soon, I would take UA off the list.

NH = 125%
US = 100%
UA = Partnership ending
BD = 150%
OZ = 100%

With your flying patterns I would go with BD and wait till it changes to avios. Then 9k + Ģ35 to many places in Europe is a great deal.

NH would be second choice.

Thanks for your tips. Iīll probably use BD indeed and consolidate my Oneworld earning (the little that there is if that) on Avios then.
