I'm interested in peoples' thoughts on flying J rather than Y from Melbourne to Perth. Other than the obvious extra space, what are the other benefits (aside from FFP) from flying J?
The last time I did a points upgrade to J they served tubs of [SIZE=-1]Connoisseur vanilla bean icre cream[/SIZE]. As a bit of an ice cream junkie this was most welcome. As I had to drive from the airport to home on arrival I did not imbibe too much of the better quality wineNM said:
- better food and wine
For me any domestic flight is short enough and time passes quickly.Danger said:I'm interested in peoples' thoughts on flying J rather than Y from Melbourne to Perth.
Same on my last upgrade, from PER to MEL - but they ranout by the time they got to me Nevertheless I asked for, and received a mini magnum from down the back of the bus. And I didn't feel like any alcohol, as I'd already had far too much scotch on the previous sector down from BME!Shano said:The last time I did a points upgrade to J they served tubs of [SIZE=-1]Connoisseur vanilla bean icre cream[/SIZE].
For a 3-4 hours flight an upgrade IMHO would only be worth it if going to Dreamtime Seats or SkyBeds. Millenium Seats simply don't cut it. So in these cases you need to be travelling on 747's, 333's or 20 J Seat 763's.Flying Fox said:I think that MEL - PTH is a long enough flight to use points to upgrade if you have them to spare. Anything shorter domestically is a bit of a waste. Personally, I like to use my upgrades for International flights although, I do classify flying to NZ as 'domestic' due to the short flight times.

better seat pitch on the Dreamtime seats. Also more width. Dreamtime config on 767 is 5 across (1x2x2) and Millennium seats are 6 across (2x2x2).Flying Fox said:And if so, other than the IFE, I thought that these two were basically the same?
Ditto for NYCguy. Y might just possibly be tolerable for a SYD-CBR sector if there is no J available, but MEL-PER I wouldn't even consider flying at the back of the bus.simongr said:I really dont want to see the back of the bus any more - its either J (or F) or simongr is in a no fly zone
Lightweight I do it all the time!NYCguy said:Ditto for NYCguy. Y might just possibly be tolerable for a SYD-CBR sector if there is no J available, but MEL-PER I wouldn't even consider flying at the back of the bus.
