    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    I think your options will depend on availability, but roughly speaking: RJ only has night flights to AMM from FCO and CDG, so you're looking at a 1.30am arrival into CAI. BA's later flight from LHR also gets you in at around 1.15am. You can't make the earlier flight from FCO, but you might be...

    "oneworld" award (132.4K/249.6K/318K/455K) Planning - The Definitive Thread

    Where in Europe are you flying from? Your options to Cairo are to go via: London with BA Madrid with IB Amman with RJ Casablanca with AT Depending on where you're coming from, I would look at connecting through London or Amman as they generally have the shortest total travel time. Iberia has...

    Accor Fast Track to Silver/Gold/Platinum

    Yeah, I can't really do much anyway, so I guess I'll stay and report back

    Accor Fast Track to Silver/Gold/Platinum

    I'm trying to figure out if the promotional nights will trigger after the 3 night stay has credited. I'm at 29 nights currently, so my next 3 night stay will bring me to Gold. I think this means that I will receive just 10 nights instead of 30. Does that sound right?

    Jetstar no longer offering Max bundle in Economy

    What a sneaky change! Thanks for the spot. I still think that JQ Business Max is a great value earner depending on the route, and the product is pretty decent for what you pay. Still, the overall devaluation (sorry, “enhancement”) across the board hurts.

    Platinum shadow seat

    I still have a shadow at T-1, EF has the seat blocked and lounge staff say that I still have an empty seat next to me. Plane is now 90% full, so I will be very happy if it sticks.

    Jetstar no longer offering Max bundle in Economy

    They've also taken away a bundle with 14kg of carry-on. I'm realistically not going to fit everything in under 7kg (my non-clothes backpack already usually comes up to 5kg). These set of changes doesn't just kill Max bundle efficiency for me, but also makes the Starter Plus bundle a lot worse...

    Reward Flight Questions

    Amazing, thanks! I vaguely remembered seeing that floating around, but I didn't realise it was also filterable (i.e. it wasn't just a blank route map).

    JAL Japan Airlines domestic business

    Yep - I am consistently impressed with the WiFi on domestic JAL flights. The lounges at HND and CTS are the same as well!

    Fly in style, stay in ghetto. Anyone else do that?

    My maths tells me that if I save $200 p/n across 7 nights, I can use the money on more flights :p

    JAL Japan Airlines domestic business

    Yep, Japan domestic is incredibly no-frills. "Class J", as you have experienced, has the same service as economy. You do get a meal in what's labelled as "First Class", but it's a lot more expensive. The Class J seat is also no better than a PE seat, even on widebodies. The lounges are the...

    Reward Flight Questions

    While I agree that it's worthwhile to look at the thread linked above, I can offer some suggestions for your routing. I’m guessing that the biggest difficulty is the SIN-FRA leg, so that’s what I’ll focus on. Note that you will need to fly oneworld airlines, and there needs to be classic...

    Platinum shadow seat

    As @RichardMEL has said, I can see a blocked seat follow me around in EF.
