it's taking a while to catch, but in the long run it'll pickup and will serve QF well.

Looking forward to it  Smile

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Do you get Asia Miles for flying QF from HK to LHR as you would on BA or CX?

QF is part of oneworld so naturally you'd earn Asia Miles but whether you get any comes down to the fare class.

It should do well because:

i) HKG is on the great circle route, SIN and BKK are a slight diversion, so it's shorter and potentially slightly faster
ii) If you're into airports HKG is second to none.
iii) If you want a stop over in Asia, I would definitely choose HKG over SIN or BKK
When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.

So, I can get Asia Miles on CX, BA, QF but not VS. I guess that is why HK remains a monopoly. I'm going to use Finnair next time, because of that oyster bar airside on the upper floor. Can you still smoke there and do you also get Asia Miles on AY?
