Qantas is notoriously stingy with award space. And US-Australia awards are notoriously tough to get. It’s a long flight, business class does sell, and increasingly airlines are putting smaller Boeing 787s on the route rather than planes that might have excess seats for sale. Getting to and from Australia during winter is even harder.
So it’s notable that right now business class awards space for two passengers is fairly good on Qantas in February and March.
Here’s a look at March award space — skip the Los Angeles – Sydney route and West Coast – Australia is pretty doable in both directions for two business class award seats.

You can fly Qantas, and redeem awards without fuel surcharges. And remember that Qantas award space can be better than what appears on American’s website.
