Swiss – A round trip in Club Europe is worth 80 points 80/1500 equates to 18.75 round trips. It is possible to purchase short haul CE for around £250.00 staying a Saturday night. Therefore £250.00 x 18.75 equates to £4687.50. Even if you go further afield or have a short journey at the flexiable fare of say £400.00 x 18.75 still only comes out at £7,500.00 which is a long way off £30K.
Flying Chinaman – yes that was mentioned earlier about CX but the only one. Being Oneworld will that change as well.
