• Thanks Simon, bad news, but at least I know now.

  • Hi Simon, Just came here to find out this exact same question - know this was a couple years ago, but how did you go? We have a 7 hour transit, first flight should be in First - wondering if we stay at the airport can we spend the time in First lounge? On-flight is in economy with EK.

  • This may explain why the earlier of the 2 A330 BNE-PER has been replaced by a 737. Booked in September, they changed it about a month ago. Frustrating when you book around a particular plane/spec.

  • Thanks for the clarifcation ChrisCh, I couldn't find anywhere that it states if QF marketed was OK, or if it had to actually be QF Operated. Great article too, shame I'll miss seeing the lounge.

    The original article about Emirates new J, on this site, stated that all 777 from November 2016 delivery would have their updated fully flat beds. I think i found quite a few delivered since then - all from tail number A6-EPV onwards IIRC. I think the ones an the new business and the new first as...
