SYD to LHR with Oneworld Alliance

There are plenty of airlines which offer flights from Sydney to London via their hub city; some of these include the likes of Qantas, Emirates, Etihad, Qatar ………. The list goes on ……….. But what if you want to earn Qantas Frequent Flyer points on them?? Is it just restricted to flying on a ‘QF’ flight?? It turns out that there are more options than you may think, don’t forget that you can earn Qantas FF Points aboard it’s Oneworld alliance members as well. Below are the Oneworld members in question, their stop over point and how many points you’ll earn with them..

 The Oneworld alliance is made up of the following airlines, of which the ones in bold operate to Australia….

  • Airberlin

  • American Airlines

  • British Airways

  • Cathay Pacific

  • Finnair

  • Iberia

  • Japan Airlines

  • LAN

  • TAM

  • Malaysia Airlines

  • Qantas

  • Qatar Airways

  • Royal Jordanian

  • S7 Airlines

  • Sri Lankan Airlines

From this, we now know that 8 of the 15 Oneworld airlines fly to Australia. What does this mean to us?? It means that Australian Oneworld members (usually as Qantas Frequent Flyers) have a huge choice between airlines when flying overseas. Take two large hubs, Sydney and London, all the Oneworld airlines flying to Australia offer a one stop service to London (except LAN) meaning that the point conscious traveller still has a wide variety of choice. The table below outlines the route per airline and the Qantas Frequent Flyer points earned as the lowest frequent flyer on the lowest fare.Table

EDIT: QANTAS FREQUENT FLYERS EARN 1850 POINTS FROM SYD TO DOH, COMBINING TO A TOTAL OF 2600 POINTS BETWEEN SYD AND LHR

As show in the table, the amount of points one can earn fluctuates massively between airlines; this ranges from 2625 all the way to 6200 points on a basic economy fare. Naturally, the airline to which you hold a frequent flyer membership will offer the most points with their airline but if you prefer to fly with another carrier or there is an exceptionally good deal with one of the other Oneworld airlines it’s worth having a play around to see who offers the best rate, after all its not about points earned per flight but rather points earned per dollar spent on the flight which is worth your while the most.
