A few years ago, CX's business class seat and service was one of, if not the best, offering for long haul international travel - and my favourite. However, since then competition from other airlines have ramped up and CX has not kept up with its overall offering (whilst trying to maintain its pre...

I am a lifetime Gold QFF member and now have more than 1m QFF points in my acccount. I have found it very difficult in the past to redeem the points for J or F flights during the period I usually travel for leisure (Dec / Jan). So I tend to use the points now (when possible) for upgrades on QF wh...

The new Air France first class offering is simple but refined and excellent. No showers though.

Have been avoiding Thai on J trips to Europe due their substandard non-flat bed seats between SYD to BKK. They have obviously decided to not use a better plane on this sector due to lack of competition on the route (QF's offering is also poor on this route). Real pity - as their onboard serivce i...

I have the same flight SQ/AF in J class to CDG and found that the connection time was tight (even at SIN). I got to the AF flight but my luggage did not. I had to file a report at CDG (in long queue with others) and only received my bags ca. 3 days later (for whatever reasons from SIN they sent t...

Strange and silly operational strategy re flights from Sydney to Tokyo as both JAL and ANA are offering fully flat bed seats at competitive prices.

Sorry - should have typed EY rather than EH.

Have travelled to CDG on SQ (A380), CX (A330/777W) and TG (747/A380) on J and found CX to be the best overall plus chance for stopover in HKG. SQ is better from food, service and entertainment but falls behind CX in terms of seat, lounges and amenity kits. Have flown on EH to London but not on th...

Interesting topic / question. I also have the same dilemma (i.e. already achieved QF LG and not sure about my ability to maintain platinum with QF in future years). I travel more to Asia and Europe. My current thoughts are to utilise CX more often (Asia/Europe) or try Qatar to Europe (even though...
