• Just an addition: it seems that you don't need to be departing only from TBIT to use it. I flew United BusinessFirst MEL-LAX-JFK return recently, and both legs leaving LAX left from terminal 7. Was able to pass through security, and was only asked about why I was going into TBIT out of concern th...

    Surely this more aimed at the high frequency business travellers who are heading to Brisbane, Sydney or Adelaide on day trips and can then pick things up just like they had been at work all day. Should be great for them if they don't have a large suitcase for a 4hr trip

Must be route dependent - a booking Sydney to London is currently showing both saver and sale fares, but no red e-deals.There is a slight difference in the wording of the upgrade rules for sale and saver, but its hardly clear. Sale fares are definitely not upgradeabl...
