  1. How to find out which airline requires the least amount of FF points to travel the same route.
    e.g. Brisbane, Australia to Cape Town South Africa.
    or Cape Town South Africa to Dubai, as there seems to be a great variance.

    Look at their award charts, try their online site (usually doesn't work for complicated Intl routes), call and ask.

    The first is the most reliable method, the latter two are prone to crappy sites and dumb agents.

    Take a look at milewise, you can search for flights based on Miles, Cash and Points.

    Remember, however, that miles can be far easier to earn in some FF programs than others. You shouldn't only be comparing the simple numbers of miles required for a particular award ticket.
