    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...

    Gold Points Upgrade Chances - Business vs Premium Economy

    I have gold status and am flying to the US in a few months in economy. I can be added to the waiting list to upgrade for a business or premium economy upgrade, but have to choose one. Do you think there is a higher probability of getting one over the other? Thanks!

    What's your experience of Cathay Premium Economy?

    I'm curious for those that have experienced CX PE, if you think it's worth the additional cost instead of travelling Y? My mother has had a number of health issues recently and is very nervous about travelling to visit my brother in the US (ORD). Last trip she went with EY and briefly passed...

    Premium passengers using economy check in

    I recently checked in for a QF flight to Australia. I wasn't surprised to see that only one check in counter was allocated to business and around five to economy. There was however the same amount of people in the business and economy queues so there must have been a few passengers with status...

    Economy X Row 3 - what is so good about it?

    Now that I have been upgraded to platinum, I can selected Economy X seats for my upcoming flights. I see that nearly all of you prefer to pick row 3. Why is that?

    VA8 EconomyX vs PE on QF12? Thoughts?

    Merry Xmas all - I'd like some advice on any experiences in VA EconX vs QF PE. Specifically: At the moment I've got 23A (EconomyX) on VA8 (LAX-SYD 777-300ER), 38" pitch, decent reviews on SeatGuru. It's a standalone one-way points booking, so I can cancel without any significant penalty...
