    Hey everyone, just a heads up (and of course assuming international travel is back to some normality)- I was looking at premium economy fares on BA to LHR ex SYD in late November and you can get return flights for under AUD$3200.00. Thought that was a pretty good deal. Has anyone flown BA...

    VA premium economy to USA - what is the fare type for AU domestic connections?

    I’m thinking of booking a premium economy ticket to JFK with the intention of waitlisting for a J points upgrade on the Au to LAX leg. However, because I fly from Hobart I will have a domestic connection that doesn’t have premium economy seats. Does anyone know what fare code these domestic legs...

    Anyone flown PE on QF A380 Refurbed birds?

    Just out of curiosity, has anyone flown on the refurbed A380s and more specifically, has anyone been seated in 31A/B/J/K. I know these seats don't have the great extra legroom feature as 24A/B/J/K (which in 12 months time will be phased out,) but according to seatguru.com, Row 31 is...

    Had a booking from awhile ago and paid for econX and will be platinum before the flight(hence free econX) and was hoping for a refund. I know I will have to ring customer service but was wondering if any one had any experience with this before I do.

    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.

    QANTAS Vs Virgin PE to US (and then MEX)

    I want to fly PE SYD->MEX return next year (1/6-8/6/20) and I see QANTAS have a PE deal for $3200 via Dallas with their 380, whereas Virgin costs around $3400 via LAX on the 777. I believe the US->MEX leg will be Economy only. Has anyone flown these 2 routes to the US and can compare them? I...

    Singapore airlines - paying for extra leg room on Economy & Premium Economy

    Over the past 2 years I purchased on 5 separate occasions extra leg room on Singapore Airlines. When paying extra on a flight you do have some expectation of getting at least the same service or better in the cabin. From my experience you get the following: 100% of the time you will be the last...

    Delta not upgrading VA Gold to Comfort Plus [booked "Basic Economy"]

    Very disappointed on my recent flight with delta they refused to even put me on the comfort plus upgrade list. I requested at check in, at the lounge and at the gate. They seemed to have very limited awareness of the delta/virgin arrangements, which goes against my previous experience where...

    Has anybody had any experience with an online TA called Ypremium? I think they operate out of Adelaide. They may also operate as flatbeds.com.au.

    QF10 LHR to MEL Premium Economy

    Last week, my request to use points to upgrade from Economy to Premium was granted, so I took my first PE flight. Overall, it was very good, and to anyone wondering if upgrading to PE is "worth it", I would say Yes. The extra comfort allowed a little more sleep, with the result being that the...
