Qantas has reduced the number of points needed for its Classic Award frequent flyer flights (the ones with a fixed points cost but potentially limited seat availability). More specifically, it's cut the number of points you need to use if you want to avoid airport taxes and charges and get a totally free flight from 5000 points to 3,500 points per sector. So a Sydney-Brisbane flight, which used to be 13,500 points charge-free, is now 11,000 (and remains 8,000 if you pay the taxes yourself). The change only applies to domestic flights, but it's still a nice improvement. Check out our guide to Qantas' frequent flyer scheme for more on how to best use your points.
