What is Qantas Classic Rewards?
Qantas Classic Rewards is the name given to the Qantas Frequent Flyer program reward seats. Simply put, these seats are limited and do not correspond to the available seats on a flight. There is no guaranteed minimum reward seat availability, so popular flights might have very few or no classic reward seats available. To find classic reward seats, click the “Reward seats” toggle on the search page for a flight. This will let you see all Qantas and partner reward seats. Qantas also has another type of reward called an “Any seat” reward which enables you to use points to redeem any empty seat on the plane. This is not the reward you should be going for, as the price depends on the airfare at the time and typically represents a worse value than the rates you see on classic rewards.
To give yourself the best chance to redeem classic reward seats start searching as early as possible. Qantas releases reward seats 353 days in advance, but if you have Bronze or Silver status, you can only see them 297 days and 323 days, respectively.
