    Hi Lucky.

    I know looking for award flights from/to Australia is extremely difficult however when I have looked at both AA and Qantas sites for January 2016 it just keeps saying error messages. Do you think this would be because they haven't been released yet even though it is less than the 331 days? Is there any other airlines that would be worthwhile possibly purchasing points as we have no way to obtain them with credit cards?

    @ Sarah -- Alaska miles could be worth purchasing, since they let you route to Australia via Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific. There shouldn't be an error message if there's not availability and you're within 331 days.
