F seats in CX are huge and have ottoman across the table (even with own seat-belt!)  so two people can dine together. So question is - can I invite pax from other class? I been in exactly the same situation with BA - I was lucky enough to have free upgrade to F while my dear was "struggle" in J. So they allow her to came over, but not for dinner. Thus I curious if it possible with CX.

And.... WHY SO LOUD?!? Do not shout If you simply do not like it - I personally would not care as long as they do not interfere with my business (i.e. not as loud as you for example). I personally hate babies on plane because they may cry and I hate uncontrolled kids that may jump up and down whole 14hr flight and thus do not like to see such category of pax in premium cabin. But what is wrong to dine with your wife especially considering that seat actually designed for this? I indeed will politely ask CX once on plane and if they say "no" so be it. Though I like to know it upfront because if it "no" I simply may purchase ticket for my dear elsewhere.

Don't shout back if you don't like the answer.  Seems you have so called 'yelled' at people in a past post...

Hardly fair on the other paying passengers in the cabin.

I just mimic you. And besides there was no answer, just some kind of emotions that amused me. Sorry if I upset you.

And back to the question, is that a 1am departure?  Most likely a no to ensure that other F pax are not disturbed by conversation (lower case no!).   In a similar situation with QF, but a morning departure, they were OK with a visitor from J, but only briefly after the meal.

And how fair to allow bring a guest in lounge? I would argue that this is even worse because gust taking someone space in lounge and not taking any space in F suite. And how fair to allow crying baby in F?

I don't know of any airline that will allow a passenger from a lower cabin to dine with someone in F. Many airlines seem to be OK if it's just for a chat or maybe (at most) a drink. There's certainly no way that they would serve the passenger from the other class a meal from the F menu, and it would look pretty poor for the extra person to be sitting there eating their economy meal out of plastic while the F pax is eating off fine china!

Don't know about CX but it does not hurt to ask. A few years ago I flew on QF SYD-JNB in J for work and my wife flew in F on my FF points. The FSD spoke to me just after lunch and apologised for not inviting me to join her for lunch but invited me to join her "after she finishes her after lunch nap" for afternoon snacks and drinks for a couple of hours. One of the FAs gave her a nice bottle of red when she was leaving the flight. Good crew and flight.

As a full fee paying F flyer, I would be disappointed that 'guests' are allowed - if one F passenger is permitted a visitor, then all should be granted the same privilege which is untenable.  I would also be disappointed to learn that a F meal was unavailable due to a guest having dined on my option.

Well I did this once without any issues. Flew SQ Suites from SYD to SIN and my friend was travelling in business upstairs on the A380. He came down and had a few beers with me and then the staff asked if he'd like to join me for dinner. I was surprised but I certainly didn't ask. Perhaps it was a bit more relaxed as there were only 3-4 of us in the Suites cabin that evening?
