Can anyone explain to me why the SC yield on the new QF BNE to ORD sector is so poor?

I've included other city pairs as a comparison with Perth to London being a similar distance.

It appears they haven't set up a specific city pair in their award tables like they did with Perth to London and are just taking the miscellaneous ultra-long haul mileage item off their tables. Doesn't seem quite right.

BNE-LAX / BNE-ORD / PER-LHR / SYD-DFW

Hi NQflyer, it's as you say: they haven't created a city or region pair yet in the earning table, so the calculator would just be showing the 'default' distance-based result. I suspect that as the route doesn't launch until next year, it's something that Qantas would look at closer to the time, particularly as there's been a recent flow of generosity in terms of earning points on flights to the US, with earning rates on AA flights and codes having increased this month.

Whether Chicago is grouped in with the equivalent of Sydney-Dallas, Sydney-New York (single flight number) or somewhere in between, however, remains to be seen.
