Think its been miles for at least 10 years now.

I believe it was km back in the distant past

I believe LANPASS is the only FF program that both flies to Australia and uses kilometres to calculate flight earnings.

If that's of interest to you, do check the redemption rates before jumping ship – a higher earn rates doesn't always result in the best value.

and please provide proof of  when QF used kms as a measure of distance in relation to points earned during your period of FF membership

thanks to the posters on here...it seems QFF STOPPED calculating distance using kms about 13YRS AGO!! ..im guessing  cstockwell just wants to stir the QF BASHING POT..and WE ALL HOPE that cstockwell being an ENGINEER... IS MORE UP TO DATE IN HIS/HER INFO AT HIS/HER WORKPLACE!!!!

I believe the only airline in the OW alliance to use metric is AY.

QF has always accrued in miles. Even BA and IB uses imperial measurements (disguised as Avios)!

Don't tell Brussels lest we get the metric martyrs all hot and bothered again!

QFF did indeed use to base points earning on KM rather than miles; this was changed in September 2001 when the current FF scheme was introduced.

Same time as the 1000 mile min was introduced if I am not mistaken.

Hmmm... for someone that travels 150 days a year, it is very strange that you have only just know realised that it is miles per point....
