Aren't you forgetting about the DL cap at 75,000 RDMs per ticket/PNR, including elite bonuses, etc.? This seems to be a RT fare, so I don't think you can buy it as two OWs for the same price.

Let's not forget the Australia entrance/quarantine requirements.

Apologies didn't remember that RDM Cap, when sharing these deals I just input the values I get from my calculator. Usually never close to 75,000... Will take that into consideration for the next iteration
If RDM greater than 75000 display 75000.

But you have to wait 14 days after booking (If I'm not mistaken) and hope the QR policy remains in place...

Currently it would be less about waiting for the policy to still be in place as much as hoping the same fare buckets are still open in 2 weeks.
If you bought under one policy it should be easy enough to argue for being able to keep using it or it would be misleading advertising
