    $1210 J class round trip on PR MEL/SYD to S.E Asia

    Flew SYD-MNL return in January 2018 in J. My overall assessment is good value for money (paid $1800 return). New business class lie-flat seats on A330 very good. . SYD-MNL service was friendly, ok but not excellent. Food was ok, not exceptional (vegetarian meal). MNL-SYD service was ok, Food...
