A reminder that if you fly Qantas you can earn 100% Alaska miles.

Also, when I booked Qantas SFO-SYD on Expedia the price dropped to $618 for some reason.

This is a nice sale and is very tempting! I wish the nonstops to AKL were more readily available at this price later in the year. They jump up to around $1000 but the SYD connections stay low priced. Trying to find something on SkyTeam and if so, I might jump at it for a quick trip for 3 days of fishing in September.

Ended up grabbing a pair of tickets on VA to CHC around Thanksgiving.

Paid $870 to get to CHC on VA on those dates, but that's OK, this will earn nearly 1600 DL MQDs with the 10% multiplier and almost 16K MQMs which should easily lock me down for PM this year at the rate things are going.

It looks the the AA fares are 'Refundable' but book into the 'O' fare category. Can that be correct?

Great catch!!!

Fare rules dictate. I'd say it's a mistake, so save the fare rules...

Edit - I just checked the fare rules on AA.com and it shows $200 cancelation penalty, so it must be a web display error

Can you provide sample dates?
I only found SFO to SYD, 5/5-5/7, $688 on Kayak.

If anyone booked these and are flying QF, remember to sign up for Alaska's Global Partners bonus for 200% flown miles on these economy fares. No other program on QF "O" fares will even come close.

Totally OFF-TOPIC ...what type of fishing? Might make it worth a run. TIA
