Fixated with constructing the best points itinerary beheld by all of mankind, I forgot common sense in making my booking from Melbourne to Wellington. I elected to use Avios to fly business on Qantas. The fare should've been 40,000 points and a nominal amount in tax. Instead after hours arguing with terrible British Airways customer service, I ended up paying $260 which included improper fuel surcharges.
My fascination with Hungry Jack's began when I visited Sydney in 2013 (see The $77,000 Trip Heard Round the World).
On the flight from Darwin to Melbourne, alcohol was not included leading me to rethink my Avios valuation (see Burn Those Avios!).
