Best Way To Get To Oz In J?

Sat Jun 17, 2006 2:00 am

What is the best airline to fly with in J from GLA or EDI to MEL? I am planning a trip there in July 2007 and was hoping to get on the 380. I know that probably won't happen now (had to get that in!) I want to stop in DXB either on the way there or back but not too keen on flying EK for the whole journey as their seat is appauling!

Taking price, entertainment, best seat and service into consideration, what would be the best option? I am willing to go via LHR.

Take it easy on me this is my 1st post after being a long admirer of the site!!!

** - BA will introduce a new Club Class very soon, so in 2007 it will feature a new and improved J class  Smile

So your routing would be LHR-BKK-MEL-SIN-DXB-LHR  Smile

If you do not wish to travel on SQ, then I would reccomend MH via KUL  Smile

Thanks for all the help so far! Any more would be greatly appreciated.

Quoting B742 (Reply 2):

Wow! That route sounds great! The only problem with that would probably be the cost. Do you have any idea how much it would be for 2 adults to fly on that route? Am I right in thinking it would cost more flying with so many different airlines?
