    Guys and Girls,

    So I may be heading to China in the next week or two for work and was having a quick look at prices etc.

    Employer was going to book discounted Y for $~1100 on CX.

    I am keen to fly SQ at around the same mark and I then jumped on BestFlights (Dont normally do this :) ) and found they have Premimum ecnomy fare for $1300. However i can't find it on the China Southern site itself.

    Is bestflights reputable? Anyone know what China Southern PE is like? Happy to pay the extra $$ if its worth it!

    Cheers

    Absolutely - have used them a dozen times without a hitch.

    But I hate the 4% AMEX surcharge they apply

    Can't say it sounds all that enticing...

    China Southern Airlines Co.,Ltd

    There seem to be mixed reports on Skytraxx of some aircraft only have mainscreen IFE showing Mandarin movies.

    Personally I would be going for SQ in Y I think

    Eeek! I reckon they've lost a sale then!

    Looks like I might need to go to SGN as well so may just book on SQ Y. Try and get a cheap mile earning flight and I'll use my Westpac KF card!

    I booked MU J MEL-PVG return May 23 / 29 with Best Flights incl 4% AMEX for $2,356.

    I booked MU J MEL-PVG return Jun 20 / 27 with Flight Centre incl 1.8% AMEX for $2,381

    I would rather pay ZERO surcharge but even an occasional 4% aint much when you consider a total years spend
