Hi everyone,

I want to experience first class luxury (on a budget). Seems I can fly from Singapore to Sydney for $5900 (dates not an issue) Im based in PER so SIN or HKG are not too far away. Anyone know of a cheapest quality First Class experience?

Im Qantas platinum member.

Thanks in advance, and MERRY CHRISTMAS

Nige

1st is nice - worth doing ... at least once.

I got an op-up to F once on CX years ago and though their J class is really nice, F was plush!

Your question has me thinking now, will return later if I can find something cheaper.

Im with the Boss. Anything ex UK or Europe is going to be much better value than ex Australia (or SIN).....

The cheapest "proper" (long haul config plane) first class you can get would be Doha - Bahrain on British airways. First class one way is about AU$280. Handy if you are in the middle east. But the journey is so quick (20-30 minute flying time) it is almost pointless.

There are some cheap first class inter-asia fares avalaible. Such as BKK-HKG on Emirates or Thai which can be had for ~AU$500 one way and the flight is long enough (two and half hours) to enjoy the service.

Malaysia airlines has a first class service from KUL-SYD if you want a longer flight. Which you can get for a bit under AUD$5000 return, some times with specials it can get even cheaper.

That sounds about as exciting as AA F between GIG and GRU (which incidentally, cannot be purchased as a standalone fare)
