does not fly to CCU
. In fact, very few international airlines do.
flyboy, I have narrowed my choices to SQ
, the route will be westward, via SFO
. In this case, I will fly have to fly AUS
on United first; and the price is at about $2000 for the entire trip.
on the other hand is one stop to CCU
. I live in AUS
; so for IAH
flights, I usually take the Greyhound to Houston. The QR
flight costs about $1770.
I have flown on QR
once and SQ
three times. Although, QR
is great, the flight map did not work in the IAH
sector and then, at the gate for my CCU
flight, I was told that the flight was overbooked. I had the spend 24 hours in Doha. QR
provided hotel and food; a $200 (I think) voucher, and a business class upgrade in the return CCU
leg. Good gestures, but after a 14 hour flight and rushing to the connection gate and making it in a 55 minute layover, only to be told my flight was overbooked has made me dock some points off QR
. I am curious about the new DOH
airport though. Last time it was the old airport.
, always comes with more stops, but they have always been on time and of course great service which is a plus.
So, what will it be? I still have some thinking to do. What would you do?
Spend more hours on SQ
or less time on QR
