FF Points query

How come flying one way on a cheap fare with JQ CHC-AKL/ZQN-CHC I get 1000 points for each flight, but when it comes to one way AKL-SYD I only get 1346 points....

Edit AKL-SYD with QF also

Qantas has a minimum 1000 miles per flight, so it doesn't matter if it's 1 mile or 999, you get 1000.

Anything above that gets actual miles.

(Ignoring status/class-of-service bonuses)

To be pedantic, that 1000 minimum applies to Qantas/JQ flights only (where points are earned).
