Im thinking of booking paid J class BNE to LAX in VA the business (cheapest J fare type). I believe the direct flights earn 120SC each way.

There's a saying: "Why fly direct when you can fly indirect?"Many of us regularly fly indirect to reach our SC goals faster and at a lower cost per SC.
Thanks that’s great. I will fly via MEL to maximise points - platinum for the Mrs I expect. Also to try the Etihad lounge.

Yes I regularly fly NTL to BNE for international and sometime domestic rather than driving to Sydney when it's practical to do so. You will earn SC for each leg (40 + 160 if going to Sydney) but the rates for the domestic leg are the international earn rate.
