Restrictions

There are a few restrictions to be aware of with this offer:

  • Travel must be on Qantas or Jetstar operated flights, any codeshare flights are not eligible
  • There are restrictions on connecting to other airlines. The example Qantas give is an itinerary that is connects from a Qantas Sydney to London flight to a connecting flight to Brussels
  • The discount only applies to the points component and not to any taxes and surcharges

Qantas run these promotions from time to time, and there may be some good value around.

Normally, best value for redeeming points is usually found in premium classes such as Business and First Class, Unfortunately, these cabins are not available in this sale.

There are however cases when it can make sense to book in Economy, and this is especially so when there is a sale such as this.
