After lots of running around, and failing to secure anything reasonable for a LHR-SIN for the family in late May, I went with QR, who beat SQ's price for the 5 of us by over S$3000 (!). It's a Q fare, so would earn at 70% on OZ or 50% on BD. Thing is, I'm now wondering whether to credit to QR's Privilege Club instead, and see whether they could be a backup choice when *A isn't available, considering their good route network and increase in capacity to SIN. They refused point blank to status match, unless it was part of a new corporate account (which I can't swing). This trip would earn me 80 QPoints, and the same for the wife. It looks like miles can't be earned for the kids until I become Burgundy anyway. So, is it really worth the hassle of having another card? I could see this as our travel option for family trips (assuming their prices remain competitive).
