Here's my google flights search . You'll only get the $4K price by booking through Expedia as far as I can tell. Click Price Graph for availability during Nov. Looks like minimum stay is 12 days.

Books as "I" class but I'm not sure who you can credit to...

125% on Virgin - not too shabby!

Good find. There are 2 stops making it 30 hours but I could live with that in J. 😃

Anyone flown this airline? Paul Lucas gave them a terrible review recently.

They are fine. You have to remember that most of those reviewers are capturing just that moment in time only. There Will always be varience. I only watch them to see what the seats are like, legroom etc

I traveled with them in March with my wife. BNE to CDG in business via Sian.
I probably wouldn't go that route again.
The airport transfer experience was a little ordinary. You are not allowed to stay in the airport. they move you to a hotel. Checking in and getting through security takes an age!
The lounge at Sian was ok.
The staff were great, both in the lounge and on-board on all legs.
I'd be happy to travel with them again.

The cabin on Paul’s flight had a serious issue with cleanliness. This hasn’t been reported on other similar trip reports that I’m aware of.

In general the reviews are pretty positive, given the price point.
