I now have enough Qantas frequent flyer points to travel return to New Zealand. When I have used them before, the trip was totally free, but now they are charging you for the additional taxes and fees.
I am not a fan of reward programs, and they probably only benefit people who travel on company sponsored trips.
I agree Mike with you we only benefit from Brians FF points after 3 years of travelling with his work. Anne and I are going to Ireland and return trip compliments of Runenergy.
