Not everything has a link.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

I didn't see this mentioned anywhere, but now that El Al can be booked via Qantas, there is another interesting way to accrue Qantas miles.

Accor points transfer to Qantas 1:1 (2000 Accor to 2000 Qantas).  Not necessarily the best way to use them (2000 Accor can also give you 40 EUR off at one of their hotels), but if you just need to top off it can do the trick.  Also, no other hotel has a 1:1 to Qantas.

I haven't found anyway to buy/earn Accor besides actual stays or rental cars, but they do partner with E-Rewards at a very good redemption rate.  $60 E-Rewards = 1000 Accor with no limit to number of redemptions per period. (Obviously you should work on Accor redemptions only after completing your monthly airline redemption of $100 E-Rewards to 2000 miles).

What a question
A classical question for someone who earns miles only by flying and redeems at terrible rates (if at all).

Is there a way to know if there is availability without calling. (like a 12.5k on AA will be found on BA)?

Thanks
