Qantas - Qantas Frequent Flyer

Planning a trip to Dublin next year (dep from Sydney). I have a fair amount of Qantas points (into the hundreds of thousands) and am trying to figure out if I can use these points to get to Dublin on another one world partner airline? QANTAS can get me as far as Dubai but the DUB-LON flight appears to be sold out already in business class.

They can be used for other oneworld airlines.
i would recommend looking at availability with either of cx, jl or ba.
in terms of finding this availability, you would need to look on the relevant cx or ba pages to see what award availabilities are there, or even call up qantas and see if they can route you to dublin via hong kong, singapore, tokyo and london

What class are you looking to go? And what dates?
Looking at the award booking calculator it will cost you 256,000 in J return. Whilst first will cost you 384,000 points.
By DUB-LON you mean DXB to LHR on QF?
Why wouldn't you go EK direct to Dublin in J or F. I understand if you don't want to because they operate a 777 on the route and their J is sub par. Their F is ok though.
If you would like to go DXB to LHR then LHR to DUB. If the QF 1 leg on the DXB to LHR route is sold out in J look for QF9 from DXB to LHR, as they arrive a couple of hours apart (6 I think).
Otherwise if you don't want to wait around go for EK A380 to LHR (If connection times are better) then LHR to DUB on BA.

As a preliminary step (prior to calling the QF call centre) - I've had success in similar endeavours by looking at multi-segment journeys on the Qantas website (e.g. SYD-DXB-LHR-DUB or SYD-HKG-LHR-DUB, etc.).As Hayden noted though calling can be a good idea, for there are times that certain city pairs do not show up as having classic reward availability on the website / are not searchable, when in fact there are seats available for QF redemptions.
Hi Tom, def mean DXB to LHR. You are also correct in assuming I'm not a fan of EK J product on the 777. It looks tired and outdated. My trip is quite a long one, so I am happy to spend a little longer in the sky and fly with cx if need be.
thanks for all the info so far everyone. Keep it coming...
You could go BA which isn't the best.
CX are alright but I think I still prefer QF.
If you would wait for 6 hours at DXB in the louge you could go QF to LHR, by going QF1 to DXB then QF9 to LHR then a BA flight to DUB
