    When to book Christmas flights to Europe on premium economy or economy?

    Two years ago I nabbed Vietnam Airlines premium economy tickets to Europe in Dec-Jan for about 2k return. I suffer the same problem as I think everyone else does… do I book now or wait and when do I Stop waiting and buy because prices will just leap. Any thoughts?

    Most comfortable economy class seat?

    What's the most comfortable airline seat you've sat in within an Economy Class cabin? Personally I like the SQ 777 seats, and I found the Economy Plus (extra legroom seats) on the United 767 pretty good - both wide and with good legroom. Perhaps the most comfortable Economy seat though was on...

    Difference between using points for Red e deal compared to Economy Classic Rewards

    Can someone explain the difference between using points for Red e Deal compared to Economy Classic Rewards because it seems confusing why Qantas would sell seats in Red e-Deal for points when you can get them at a heavily discounted rate booking a rewards seat? For instance this 07:35AM MEL >...

    Qantas Business Class customers bumped to economy in Tokyo

    Qantas is now behaving like Jetstar. We were just bumped down to economy for overnite flight from Tokyo to Melbourne. Ticket paid and booked 7 months earlier, discounted but still not cheap! As only Bronze status we got bumped. Will definitely never fly Qantas business again!

    Economy vs Premium Meals

    My family travelled on QF36 in both classes. Was a bit suprised the choices for the dinner were the same except Neil's leaves! I travelled in Premium and enjoyed the hot breakfast though. I felt that was better than the usual egg and bacon roll in J! Not sure what happened here.

    Economy 'Flex' - a bit of a con?

    A bit of a moan more than anything else. I recently bought a Flex Economy Return trip to Zagreb in Croatia, from Alice Springs, via LHR both ways, for the not inconsiderable sum of just over $3400 (H fare bucket, IIRC, at least for the QF segments). The LHR-ZAG both ways with BA. Towards the...

    Qatar Economy Class - The Very Good and the Slightly Annoying.

    We flew Qatar Melbourne to Stockholm last year, then Venice back to Melbourne. What was very good was that Qatar's total return price was less than other major carriers were charging just for the first leg to Stockholm alone. So choosing Qatar was a no-brainer, and their service was excellent. I...
