Help! World's Most Suboptimal FF Itinerary!

Fri Aug 26, 2005 8:58 am

My boss' PA has just booked us on CDG-NRT-HKG-MEL-SIN-CDG on FOUR different airlines in FOUR different alliances:

CDG-NRT AF; NRT-HKG JL; HKG-MEL CX (!) ; MEL-SIN SQ; SIN-CDG AF in C/J class.

Talk about a suboptimal FF itinerary, not to mention the fact that we could have gone QF and CX on the JL and SQ legs.

Ah, well; vivre la difference!
When all's said and done, there'll be more said than done.

That's company travel bookings for you. I remember a large company I used to work for insisted that we use this travel agency for our bookings. This travel agency knew nothing about discount fares and instead would find the most expensive fare possible. Our company was then stupid enough to pay for it - and they wondered why they weren't making much profit. Why spend �30 on a LON-GLA flight when you can pay �300?
