Qantas and American Airlines have teamed up to offer more flights between the US/Canada and Australia, and to promote this partnership, Qantas is offering double points on eligible flights with a Qantas (QF) flight number between Australia and the USA or Canada.

The window for this offer is tight; tickets have to be booked between today and October 19, 2015. But the eligible flights are from December 18, 2015 through September 30, 2016 — so if you’ve been hesitating on booking an Australia trip for next year, now’s the time to push the button.

Who’s ready for some caveats?

  • An eligible flight for the purpose of this promotion means any International Qantas or American Airlines® flight with a QF flight number on your ticket between Australia and the USA or Canada where Qantas Points are normally earned.
  • Connecting domestic flights within Australia and connecting onward international flight segments are not eligible under this offer.
  • You must be a Qantas Frequent Flyer member to earn and redeem Qantas Points. A joining fee may apply.
  • The number of seats available depends on the flight, date, season and destination and some flights may not have any Classic Flight Rewards available.
  • Points Plus Pay – Flights are available on any itinerary including flights with a QF, JQ, 3K BL, or GK flight number booked on qantas.com.

If you’re planning to fly Qantas or AA (with a Qantas flight number), and you don’t mind earning Qantas points instead of AAdvantage miles, don’t forget to register!
