This is an easy one in my books... join AA... then look into doing the Platinum Challenge for a fast track to one world sapphire. Your earn rates when flying PE w CX are good on the AA program and their redemption rates for rewards flights between AUS and the UK are very generous.

Avoid the QF program in my opinion. Its too hard to get status unless you book with QF and the redemption rate is rubbish.

The best carrier for you will be CX going from Cairns (they do fly direct to HKG). The other great thing about CX is if you get to an elite status your chances of an operational upgrade are pretty stong.

CX also offer a good value PE product when compared with QF!
