At last the time is down to weeks now and not months before we are off on the next trip. We are taking a short trip to Bali in just over 4 weeks time and it can't come soon enough. Not only time off together but I think we got a great deal on the flights. Jo is chasing Gold status this year and I've got to get my Silver back so we looked at what was the quickest way to earn flyer points and status credits. See our YouTube video here for details.
By doing a LOT of investigation I uncovered a Qantas Business class flight that departs from Brisbane and goes via Melbourne to Denpasar during daylight hours for only $680 each. At last check the price for the same day is at $1000 each so it pays to get in early. The flight also gains 9900 flyer points and 180 status credits for the one way flight. However if you expected the same value on the return leg you would be.....very wrong!
I don't understand, but expect Mr Joyce would have a exceptionally good reason why the return leg, via Melbourne too, is more expensive by over $100 but only attracts 2100 flyer points and 60 status credits. So we will be looking elsewhere for our return trip, perhaps Jetstar as they offer a direct Business Class flight to Brisbane for around $600.
Rest assured there will be videos about all the flights and accommodation reviews so keep tabs via the Channel.
