Hello all.

Looking for advice. Have tried to work out how to get PE to London from Brisbane. I keep getting messages that the flight has legs in which PE is not available. Are there certain flights to ensure PE all the way.

Any help would be appreciated..

Which airline ? You won't get PE on BNE-LHR end-to-end with Qantas or any of the ME3. Most certainly will with Cathay and I expect on some Singapore, depending on their aircraft on BNE-SIN.

I think British Airways runs PE from Brisbane to London (via HK) as well.

As GregXL mentioned you can go Cathay, with the option to go Virgin Atlantic from HK if you prefer

This might clarify why only some SQ BNE/SIN flights have PE https://www.ausbt.com.au/singapore-airlines-brings-a350s-premium-economy-to-brisbane. I think maybe 2 of the 4 SIN/LHR flights have PE?

With SQ your best bet is sticking with A350s, 77Ws and A388s for PE. Not quite sure if all the 77Ws and A388s have PE but all the A350s do.

SQ 256 from BNE-SIN is the only flight with the A350 and PE, so that's probably the best place to start!

BA doesn't fly to Brisbane: it just codeshares with Cathay.

Airlines with PE out of Brisbane include Air Canada, Air NZ, Cathay Pacific, Qantas (only to LAX), Singapore Airlines (A350 flights only) and Virgin Australia (only to LAX).

Being a Singapore Airlines thread, your best bet is to look for the Airbus A350 flights from Brisbane for starters. :)

Just looked at SQ256 being A350 to SIN the A380 to Lon but keeps coming up with a error that PE not available on selected route..

Any ideas??

If you haven't called SQ to discuss, that would be your natural next step.

Singapore airlines have been having some issues with PE full fare all the way from Brisbane.

Previously due to only A330s from Brisbane (with no PE) and then the leg to Europe in pre youd have the Australia flight in Economy.

Since the introduction of the A350 to Brisbane and hence PE the website seems to have broken and sell the Brisbane legs in PE and the Europe leg in economy despite PE having free seats.

I've looked at this as well and depending on the European city I want to fly to/from it depended on days.
However I recently booked to LHR from BNE when I selected my seats they were all in PE despite getting the same message you did. Could be the segments you choose. I find Singapore Airlines extremely difficult to book through especially when it comes to cabin classes

SIA uses a quota system when booking multi-leg routings, that sometimes results in seats not being available when they really are. I've been told by SIA call center that the flights were "full", when there are still plenty of seats. I've only been able to get around it by using a travel agent, as its usually related to fare classes.
