Hi all. I need to travel from London to singapore in November. I have the option between qantas direct and cathay via hong Kong.Which one would you recommend? I will be traveling alone and in business. I hold qantas platinum, so I am hoping to spend some time in the cathay first lounge in London and the new qantas lounge. I will be connecting from Rome on ba.
Thanks for your help

Take the direct flight. Unless you have a wish to try out Cathay.

Do you live in Perth? Otherwise one stop either way surely?

I think the poster is flying between London and Singapore not Australia, Singapore and London.

Other option in Finnair, if you could BA to Helsinki then fly from HEL to SIN. Finnair I don't think is as good as Qantas Business Class but the A350 is probably pretty close compared to A380 Skybed.
Yeah, sorry missed that.

As QF Platinum, you must have done a bunch of QF flying. Try CX if you like, as it’s unlikely you’ll jag an upgraded Business Class A380 on QF. Or go QF one way, and CX the other...

If you were going to do a stop i would go with Qatar and try to get the Qsuite. The lounge in LHR is quite good also

Can you just go from Rome to Singapore via Hong Kong on CX..? Might saves lot of $$$ and time

Just flew on the Finnair A350; one of the best products in the sky; great bed, excellent service and superb food.

I don't rate Cathay's business product at all. I'd fly Qantas business if given the choice between the two.
How much is that UK AirPaxDuty?
