    I have just got a quote from AMEX Platinum Travel for a trip to London on BA.

    They have quoted a price of $7424 for two passengers in Business Class (ex Melbourne). This doesn't include taxes (payable per person).

    I cant believe this. I have to recheck with another advisor. But I rechecked with the same person twice.

    FYI The price quoted for First Class was $14848 for the two passengers.

    Once this seems like a REAL saving, which is hard to find with these companion airfares.

    They seem like remarkable savings!!???

    For once that does actually sound like a good deal - and nothing I would be able to match as a mug traveller.

    ~$4000 each to London is amazing on a OneWorld carrier... Better book it fast!

    Even through discounters and travelling through weird places, the best I would be able to do on OneWorld is about 6.5K/person.

    Have you checked you get the points? :D

    Apologies! I jumped the gun.

    The first advisor who quoted the wonderful fares was wrong, even after I checked with her 3times.

    Annoying!

    The Real Fares are not as attractive really, at all.

    J $14848 (for 2 pax) + Taxes for 2 Pax
    F $19648 (for 2 pax) + Taxes for 2 Pax

    He he - tgtwwm is flying J to LHR from SYD and paid about $9,500 - that's on QF though so no chance of NNCW - Amex seems a little more expensive ;)

    OT, but do you have the contact details for Amex Platinum Travel?

    I can't seem to get anywhere on the Amex website.
