I was recently offered a surprise operational upgrade on a Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt to Lisbon. This gave me a great opportunity to try out Lufthansa’s short haul business class. Since this was a surprise upgrade, and the business class part of the cabin is the same as the economy class, the review will be a bit shorter than usual.
After flying economy to New Zealand I decided it was worth to spend some miles on a business class flight back to Europe. With some luck I managed to find a routing via Taipei and Paris. The first leg of the journey from Auckland to Taipei was an Air New Zealand flight in a 787-9 Dreamliner in Business Premier.
This was my first time flying Qatar Airways and it was probably the longest economy flight I had ever taken. The trip consisted a 6 hour flight to Doha followed by a 16 hour flight to Auckland.
Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been having issues fetching availability data for Thai Airways, Singapore Airlines, and TAP. However, after some hard work, this is finally back. There are some limitations though described below.
I recently had the opportunity to try Lufthansa’s Premium Economy in their A380 between Munich and Hong Kong. This is a brief review of the flight (Both there an back in combination).
Awards are now available on ANA’s new A380 service between Tokyo Narita (NRT) and Honolulu (HNL). Book while seats are available as they’ll probably disappear quickly!
Two big announcements today. First, we’re introducing AwardFare Alerts. Second, we’ve added First Class awards for some Singapore Airlines.
Lots of updates, including our Black Friday Offer, introducing AwardFares Trips, Singapore Airlines availability, New Routes & Map.
