Thanks, very interesting. I certanly will ask - definitelly does not hurt.
And once again - would you became disappointed if you have crying baby next to you in F that cry all 14 hours of flight? What id bigger disappointment - all 14 hours of unbearable noise or couple quietly having dinner together. Mind you I never pretend that "guest" should be serving in expense of pax.
Thanks for info.

We encourage open discussion here but must remind you of AusBT's long-standing comment policy, specifically:
such, please leave your personal remarks at the door as these are not
welcome here, and keep discussions to the topic at hand (a rather
interesting topic, at that!).
You've been warned about posting personal attacks/remarks before, and we'll not remind you of the policy again.

No success in the past for me if we're split between cabins. Personally I support such a stance - it's a premium 6 seat cabin and it would be unfair on other paying F passengers having visitors from other cabins coming up for meals/drinks.
They have no issue with an F passenger visiting J (or lower) but not the other way around.
Hi Chris,Fair enough, but capitalizing post means shouting aloud and I believe that this is personal attack on my curiosity, not even opinion! In return I said that such answer imply to me something that not even necessarily imply the same to everyone else. Of course YMMV. "Last time" was pretty much the same - I am careful not to do direct personal attacks though can and do quite frequently sarcastic or tongue in cheek posts. I am very happy (and I am sure that you agree) to keep conversation in civilized way, but man, it double-edged sword is not it?
Hi Serg, we're not going to enter into a debate here.If you feel a comment is inappropriate, you can use the 'report' button to bring it to the admin team's attention - but posting personal remarks about another user (as we've removed) is unacceptable, and will find your commenting privileges suspended if it happens again.For the record, a capital 'O' in the word 'NO' doesn't constitute a personal attack in our books, but when other users do post direct personal attacks or remarks (either here or anywhere else on the site), we remove them also when we see them - and users can help us find these faster by using the 'report' function.
Now back to the topic at hand: I'll add that I've not seen it happen on Cathay Pacific (including when sitting in the front row of business class directly behind first class on the Boeing 777s, where it's easy to see if anyone comes and goes), although I've heard of many Qantas Airbus A380 CSMs striking a fair compromise for 'premium cabin' passengers to chat with economy or lower-cabin flyers, where the solution is to spend some time together in the onboard lounge (near the A380 stairs) if it's not being used by anybody else. Not for a meal, of course, but for a drink or two (and perhaps for a couple of hours at most).Whenever I've flown Qantas First on the A380, the crew always seem to remind at the beginning of the flight that the lounge upstairs is available for meetings, but whether that was an open invitation to have anybody join me there or only to meet with business class passengers (who have access), I've not asked.
BTW on side note I was amazed that this topic attracted almost 2.5k views and it means to me that topic is hot and people keen to know answer, i.e. I am not alone in my desire to have something more out of wonderful F experience by CX :-))))
We included a link to this discussion in yesterday's AusBT email newsletter, which accounts for many of those views (and it's a great topic to discuss!). :)

No. And there should be a locked door between First and Economy.
Hi Guest, join in the discussion on
Can I bring a "guest" into the first class cabin?
