I don’t normally run fare ‘mistakes’ (if this is a mistake) on HfP but this one is worth a look.
Via Flyertalk, Emirates has filed a promotional fare of £1,275 in Business Class between Warsaw and Sydney or other Australasian destinations.
This books onto the Qantas codeshares – your flight will have a Qantas flight number but you will fly Emirates. This means that you will earn BA tier points and Avios. A search on HfP will pull up older articles explaining why this works.
To see the fare you need to depart Warsaw between 30th June and 15th October.
As always with fares like this, it could go away at any point. The airline may also cancel your ticket in a couple of days – do NOT make any ancilliary bookings until you are sure you are flying. All part of the fun …..
How to earn Emirates Skywards miles from UK credit cards (August 2022)
Emirates Skywards does not have a UK credit card. However, you can earn Emirates Skywards miles by converting Membership Rewards points earned from selected UK American Express cards.
Cards earning Membership Rewards points include:
- American Express Preferred Rewards Gold (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 20,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 20,000 Emirates Skywards miles. This card is FREE for your first year and also comes with two free airport lounge passes.
- The Platinum Card from American Express (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 30,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 30,000 Emirates Skywards miles
- American Express Rewards credit card (review here, apply here) – sign-up bonus of 5,000 Membership Rewards points converts into 5,000 Emirates Skywards miles. This card is FREE for life.
EDIT: Until 25th October 2022, there is an exceptionally generous sign-up bonus on The Platinum Card. You will receive 60,000 Membership Rewards points – double the usual amount – and £200 to spend at Amex Travel. You need to spend £6,000 within six months to earn the bonus.
Membership Rewards points convert at 1:1 into Emirates Skywards miles which is an attractive rate. The cards above all earn 1 Membership Rewards point per £1 spent on your card, which converts to 1 Emirates Skywards mile. The Gold card earns double points (2 per £1) on all flights you charge to it.
