"Originally Posted by AsiaBizTraveller Korean Air is obviously going to be the fastest way, as it's a direct flight of 10 hours, and at least the flight from Brisbane is in daylight hours, but you're right, the A330 business class seat isn't the best experience. Cathay Pacific is certainly a good..."
"Hi all, I'm heading to Seoul (from Brisbane) for work in June and can choose which airline I would like to fly. Will be in business class. I was tempted to go Qantas but it seems the most direct route is via Asiana Airlines. Korean Air would be on an A330 and the product doesn't look great. A..."
"Hi all, I have well over 1,000 status credits with Virgin but only 6 eligible sectors (most of my travel has been with Etihad and Singapore on their flight numbers). I won't be doing any overseas travel for a while but would like to upgrade to platinum for some domestic travel (such as the compl..."
"Hi all, in a few days I am flying MEL-BNE on a 9am flight in Business and am wondering what food I'm likely to get? Is it too late for a breakfast service and is it more of a morning tea? Thank you."
"Hi all, I'm off to Italy for a wedding next year (with my wife and 1 year old son) and will depart from Brisbane. I have around 300,000 Velocity points and am contemplating the best way to use them on the trip.One thought is to do three economy class paid trips to get over to Italy and then come..."

"Originally Posted by PK Was recently in F to London, and a married couple kept swapping between a F and Y seat. He explained to the crew that they were sharing the care of their baby in Y, and the crew did not bat an eyelid. I did not mind either. Do not think anyone else did. We're thinking of ..."
"I think the best way to achieve this would be to book economy seats and then upgrade with points. While there's no award seat bookings available... ever (so it seems)… there's always multiple of the extortionate 'any seat rewards' seats available, which indicates that there's probably spa..."
"I haven't done this particular route but chances of an upgrade on an Aus to LAX leg flying VA I would think are pretty slim. They count on selling as many of these as possible and getting a reward seat for the trip is nigh on impossible. I think points is your best bet but definitely call the V..."

"Hi all - first time poster.My wife, 6 month old and myself will be travelling Etihad business class to Europe later this year.
