Would much appreciate if someone could give me some pointers on the best way to book a trip for two people, from Adelaide to Rome in Business (or First Class if possible) in May next year. I currently have a QANTAS Frequent Flyer Card (Bronze) with 300,000pts and a Virgin Velocity Card which carries a small balance of 15,000pts. I have someone who would be happy to swap my 300,000 Qantas points for Velocity points if that helps things. Any help much appreciated, thanks in advance.

With the number of points you've got, you can forget first class (if you want first class all the way and for 2 people).

Generally, you cannot "swap" points between programs, and strategically booking flights for someone in exchange for some sort of consideration is against the rules of many programs.

Just as a secondary research option .. Chris has written an excellent article (yesterday) on how he did his honeymoon to Europe and back, on approximately 320,000 QF points in J Class. Go to the 'Home' page on AUSBT, look to the left and scroll down to 'Expert Guides'. Voila .. "How I Did ....". This might give you some additional ideas and strategies.

I went Syd - CDG, FCO - Syd last August with CX using QFF points. The points required was far higher than if I had used QF, I think it consumed an 300 000 points, but the taxes were just $225 or so. If it was me I would firstly look at the options adl - SEA with cash in economy and then a cheap business class with cash. Ideally with Finnair to earn enough for a proper business class ticket the following year.
