For years flying THAI I could never attain needed miles in 12 months for * Gold Status. As an Asiana Club member you have 2 years to fly 40000 qualifying miles on Asiana or other Star Alliance airlines so it's easily possible to reach Diamond Status (equivalent of * Gold). After qualifying you n...

Malaysia Airlines flights within Asia, especially Z-class business will earn good numbers of SCs. Between Australia and Asia not so many. Check how many you will get using the Qantas calculator here https://www.qantas.com/au/en/frequent-flyer/calculators.html#/
