looking for reasonable business class ticket for a short trip to Frankfurt in September. Home airport is BNE but would consider flying out of/in to SYD or MEL if the offer is right. Travel dates are 09.09.09 from Australia and returning from Frankurt 14.09.09 (or 09.14. for our American friends). So far best offer is on OZ and KE via ICN for approx. A$ 5900.00. Have done KE, CI, QF and CX many times and would like to try something else.
Just when I thought I had checked with all airlines I remembered Vietnam Airlines. Trying to get a price on their website is useless as it only let me enter Vietnamese depature and destination airports so here are my questions:
1) Best site to check Vietnam Airlines business class fare or do I have to contact their office in Sydney ?
2) How is their business class product on their 777 air craft. Hopefully better than their website I am not very demanding and do not care about the champagne they serve. Just need good seat pitch (201 cms tall) and friendly service. Do not use IFE as my IFE is the window and a good book.
3) Is transfer via Ho Chi Minh or Hanoi and is a one night stopover necessary going to Europe and/or Australia (like KE an OZ in ICN going to Europe).
Thanks in advance for your replies.
Cheers from Brisbane,
