Bonzer means good or excellent in Australian speak. Walking down the aisle past economy, premium economy, even those flat beds in business (which will look shabby from now on) en route to your first class suite aboard Qantas stunning A380 is about as BONZER as it gets. Doing it for less than what most people paid for that seat three cabins back (that's economy)? 

You're Serious? $1473 To Fly First Class To Australia?!

YES! Ever flown Alaska Airlines? Me neither! They do however have an amazing frequent flyer program, which you can use to book flights on some of their awesome partners like Cathay Pacific, American and QANTAS at incredible rates using miles. No! Don't click away yet. You don't need to fly all around the world constantly collecting miles, you can actually buy enough instantly. These flights usually cost $15,000 round trip, so this is a trick worth knowing...

So... I'm Buying Alaska Miles To Fly Qantas?

So the first thing to know is that airlines have partners. Sometimes the airline you want to actually fly on offers the worst rate in terms of miles needed for a free flight. Like... Qantas. You want to fly in style on Qantas, but they would charge you 144,000 miles one way for US to Australia in First Class or vice versa. Even if you can afford to buy or earn those miles, don't, there are better options. Alaska charges just 70,000 miles for one way in either direction between the US and Australia on Qantas First Class! As you may have now guessed, you can buy more than enough miles, 75,000 in fact, for $1473 instantly right HERE. And yeah, you could buy double for less than $3,000 for a round trip. That's a savings of $13,000 per ticket...

Sound Amazing? It Gets Better!

Alaska airlines isn't as innocent as it used to be (they took away awesome opportunities like this one on Emirates). BUT, they are still pretty cool. The "better" is that you receive a free stopover, even on one way flights. This means that you can effectively add a destination into your trip, like Sydney on the way to Melbourne or anything else that floats your boat like Los Angeles and New York on the other end for nothing. Not only are you flying in style on an amazing deal, you're saving yourself from booking another plane ticket....

What's The Catch? There's Always A Catch...

There's no catch, just a challenge. Finding seats in just about any cabin to Australia can be time consuming, but for this opportunity, it's totally worth it. The best way to search award space like a pro is to use these tools, which email you if and when seats you want become available. If you'd prefer to search on your own, I'd suggest making a free Qantas frequent flyer account. Once you have that, you can search for flights using miles. If and when you find one that works for you in first or business, that's when you'll want to buy miles and lock it in...
