I have done the trip about 13 times in the last 5 years, usually on QF
and usually in J class. However, I have done it once in Y on QF
and have flown AF
Y to NY and back.
is WAY better than AF
in terms of overall experience, consistency of service and end-to-end reliability.
Y is, all things being equal, as good as most and better than many, including all American carriers: food and wine are good, entertainment is not bad IF
it works, everything else is 'Russian roulette'.
iii) The aircraft on this sector is now the 777-300ER for which AF
is the launch customer, so at least the a/c should be reasonably 'fresh' and have the new AVOD, IF
it works (usually doesn't by all accounts).
iv) Strongly suggest taking of Melatonin from SIN
to address jet-lag and assist sleeping on this sector, otherwise it may take four days to recover at the other end. You can get it over the counter at the pharmacy in T1 at SIN
v) If you bought a ticket from QF
, join their (or perhaps BA
programme before leaving, if AF
, theirs: there are too many miles at stake to waste
Enjoy the trip.
When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.
