Bar? Check. Bling? Double check. If you’re going to fly down under, spending 18 hours on a plane, you’re gunna want to do it in style. Fortunately, thanks to a ridiculously low promo fare from Emirates and Qantas, you can soak up more than the sun at 33,000 feet on board Emirates A380, earning tons of miles and perks the whole way…
UPDATE 6:55AM EST: The Deal is OVER. If you missed it, be sure to bookmark God Save The Points so you don’t miss out. This deal was here for over 24 hours and bookable. Next time!
Emirates and Qantas are codeshare partners, which essentially means they are buddies. They are offering extremely low promotional fares from Warsaw, Poland, which is worth a visit anyway. You can fly from Warsaw to Melbourne, Perth OR Sydney for just £1050 round trip with more than 20 hours (round trip) on board the A380, complete with on board bar and Emirates premier business class seat. Getting to Poland is EASY with cheap, direct connections from most of Europe. You can even use miles to do it for free…
For any British Airways/American Airlines fans out there, there’s even a trick to earn British Airways/American miles, elite status and tier points, even though you’re flying on Emirates…
This fare is available from June 21st to October 15th of 2016, though you’ll have the easiest time finding dates in September. You can see options to Auckland HERE, Perth HERE, Melbourne HERE and Sydney, HERE.
Ok, Just Get Me To The Booking!

Now, How Do I earn BA or AA Miles + Elite Status?
If you book this with Qantas flight numbers, i.e: QF9081 is your flight number on your reservation rather than EK281, it means that since Emirates and Qantas are buddies, and Qantas and American or British Airways are buddies, you can earn miles like you’re flying on one of them, even though you actually fly on Emirates. No Qantas flight numbers, no points on British Airways or American though. Happy travels (and all those miles that come with it).
