Class Rewards - only seeing MU?

Hi guys,

So I was hoping to redeem points for a holiday and no matter the destination QF only seems to display MU availability.

Not keen to transit thru China or fly MU.

How do I go about looking for OW carriers’ availability?


Thanks!

Doesn't seem to happen for qantas.com.au with origin from Australia or USA ... are you using a different website and/or AKL origin ... maybe MU has better connections for your NZ origin flights? Try changing the routing, there are plenty of award seats except for blacked out dates (e.g. Christmas holidays).

It’s very common that the QANTAS site does not show QF availability when trying to book travel originating outside Australia. For example, try booking QF24 ( BKK-SYD), maybe see 1 or 2 seats in J per year, if that. QANTAS tries to push everyone onto Jetstar, or CX, or EK/CX ( at hugely inflated points). It’s so blatant that QF does not even show up as ‘no seats’...perhaps they’ve given up pretending and wasting everyone’s time. It’s a loathsome airline.

Are you looking approx. max of the redemption calendar range? This is what I have seen, within +/- 5 days qantas didn't show its own and Oneworld flights but MU were there.
If not, then no availabilty. MU sort of always seems to have availability.
