Hi - am interested if there's any intel on whether Qantas will have an International sale soon. I've been checking fares and routes to a few overseas destinations (London, Singapore, Bangkok) and I'd estimate the business saver fares are about 15-20% higher than what I've paid previously - which is understandable, but costly... A few competitors have come out this week with sale; but I'm holding off booking and can wait given my timing... thanks...

I wouldn't bet on it. There is a lot of pent up demand at least initially. Maybe waiting a month or so after the initial excitement is gone, and then there will be a sale. But this really is the best time to use your points. After a relatively "tough" 2 years for the airlines, they are no doubt going to be devaluing loyalty programs sooner rather than later. Not immediately, but use it whilst you still can.

Thanks djtech... I was thinking that might be the case: so more hoping than anything as I'm wanting to book flights to get status credits... and keep points for upgrade requests...

There appears to be more of a demand for flights to London now then there is for flights after 27 Dec 2021 according to Qantas.

If you go to the Qantas international sale page they are listed there: not for everyday and the December ones seem to have gone but they are there.

cheap flights in peak January season to LAX & SFO from BNE, SYD & MEL. Seems to be via Fiji. Must be Qantas codeshare. $999 return & can fly to new A359s.
