Some advice needed here.

Until recently my air travel requirements have been restricted to maybe twice yearly short haul in Europe usually with different carriers as no one single carrier operated a reasonable service to my two regular destinations.

Now (since relocating to New Zealand) however I find I will be travelling long-haul at least twice a year (to UK and Philippines) plus once or twice yearly to MEL and perhaps 4-6 times yearly to AKL.

With this amount of travel would I find it financially viable say joining ANZ FF program? Or would I be better off sticking with SQ for my long-haul trips?

There's a reciprocal agreement between SQ and NZ on the frequent flyer front. I'd say check both programs and see which works best for you.. keeping in mind that the types of fares that will be purchased on your behalf may not offer credit on one or the other program.

It does not really make a difference. Both carriers are Star Alliance members an you can earn/redeem miles on any eligible Star Alliance flight, no matter what FFP program you choose.

Either you have your NZ flights credited to your KrisFlyer account, or your SQ flights credited to the NZ Airpoints account.

I am not too familiar with both programs, so I don't know if there might be any additional benefits in favor of the NZ or SQ FFP program.

One good place to look at for FF programs is Flyertalk http://www.flyertalk.com/

They have a whole section on *A programs, they should be able to help you out. Also try the Star Alliance site, particularly for things like elite levels etc.

Looks like I will be be able to have the best of both worlds then. A liitle choice and still the benefit of an FF scheme!

Thanks to all!
