Why is this? If I could go a day earlier, which I can't, with QF, it would be 60000. What gives?
Ok. I've found out:
Connection in the Asia 2 airport of Singapore or Bangkok (or possibly in addition, the Asia 1 airport of Tokyo Narita or Osaka) allowed when traveling between Europe and the South Pacific.
Its misleading when the QF option connects in the Middle East. Or perhaps it doesn't with the same flight number.
So why not the asia 2 port of KUL? Strange.

p.s. the point of this thread is clear.
