Qantas Frequent Flyers now have more opportunities to use their Qantas Points on redemption seats for flights between Sydney and Hawaii (Honolulu).
From August, Qantas has put the larger Boeing 747 aircraft on the route, replacing the Airbus A330 aircraft which currently flies between the two cities.
This means there are additional redemption seats available for booking.
Between Sydney and Honolulu there are currently 1,900 Economy, 370 Premium Economy and 200 Business redemption seats available to book as Classic Flight Rewards in each direction between 20 August 2018 and 15 April 2019: that’s an average of 55 redemption seats per week in each direction for Economy, 11 for Premium Economy and six per week in the Business cabin.
