Hi all - I was reading an old Aus BT article and had a question regarding how to book Emirates flights with Qantas Frequent Flyer points. 


I have followed the instructions, however, when attempting a search from Sao Paulo (GRU) to Dubai (DXB) I receive an error message "The trip you have selected is not available through Qantas. Please try a different itinerary to continue."

Is this method only available for flights leaving Australia or is the route I'm searching not available via this method?

That's a very specific route which I think may be the problem... Might be worth placing a phone call to the FF department to see if it's something they can arrange.

It can be a problem when none of the destinations in your itinerary are within the QF-metal network. Flights within America tend to be exceptions but by and large, it can present problems. Booking codeshare or OW flights within Europe without doing a leg ex-AU for example is basically impossible online.
