The only downside to accumulating piles of FF points is not being able to use them when you want to and on routes and carriers that you want to . Has anyone worked out how much less value FF points as Points Plus Pay vs classic award ?

An additional benefit of points to pay is that you earn points back on the flight and status credits. Taking into account taxes, this sometimes makes the comparison a little more compelling.

Points + pay and ASA are basically what QF (or VA or any other airlines) want you to use your points on. It has a fixed value of 0.5cents per point (cpp). You exchange at that rate to a revenue ticket at a price set by the airline.
