Status Run Ideas?
For an easy and well-priced status run, our editor Tom found some excellent Business Class Saver fares from Adelaide to Canberra return via Melbourne for $573.35. These fares are available throughout the year, which gives some flexibility considering the current travel restrictions.
Since the route consists of 4 individual flight segments, you will earn a total of 50 credits per leg usually; however, thanks to the double status credits, this turns into 100 credits per flight or 400 credits total. Perfect if you’re looking to maintain status!
