While based in Manila, I did some status runs on MH whenever they had a business class sale. MNL-KUL-CGK return was often quickest and cheapest, and each trip netted 240 QFF SC for a $350 fare. Intra-Asia fares on MH have retained a decent earn rate. A pretty easy way to bump up to Platinum!

You don’t even have to fly Qantas, 4 flights on Jetstar is also enough. Easy to achieve in Asia.

Sorry should have said BA Gold is the equivalent of Qantas Platinum (Emerald).

@rwsydney I think you made it very clear. For someone that actually read what you posted! It’s the sapphire / emerald piece that’s consistent across the one world group. Not bronze / gold / platinum etc
With all due respect, Ourmanin, I read rwSydney's post in its entirety. However, I'm not au fait with the BAEC programme. I wanted to know more about how its lifetime membership compares with the QFF lifetime membership programmes.

Slightly (or significantly, depending on your point of view) OT, you are likely to be offered a “retain for points” option by QF if you have been platinum for a while. I have been offered the option of retaining platinum for 120,000 points today.
