    +1 on this. I am in Adelaide. To get here, I had a return Cathay Asia Miles flight waitlisted for months. One direction came through; the other did not. So what am i supposed to do? Cathay does not allow mixed tickets, and their one-way tickets are prohibitively expensive (this was biz class).

    I discovered that I could use my Qantas points to book the (exact same) Cathay sector that had availability, and then book a paid return, without it getting a "one way uplift". This is all one booking. Wow. So Qantas is getting my money instead.

    That's the only reason why Asia Miles still exist. If you are a frequent flyer on another airline, I will give it a pass....except for maybe getting oneworld benefits.

    Actually it's USD 40 per 2000 miles. That is pretty ridiculous. I have 38,000 miles expiring in July 2020, and it costs USD 760 to renew it!
