When I bought the ticket it was planned to be an CS300 without First and First is not sold to Cairo. When they changed the plane to A330 with First, I tried to select the First Cabin even if getting Business service but could not. Too bad.

Pretty amazing flight combo. 3200 euro for that combo of flights is not a bad deal though still quite a bit of money. Have been on C class only flights US-Japan that cost double or triple and didn't had all that luxury. Thanks for all the details that you provided, nice read! Thanks for the comment...Jump to post

Dear Airliners, Back to Cairo for a First Class "deal" which I believe and all things considered it’s not really a deal. In September 2017 I snagged a ticket with LX and SQ in First for 3200€. Factoring the positioning flights to CAI (though I used my miles to get to CAI but then canceled ...Jump to post
Looks like a decent flight and for the price, plus the miles earned, it looks even better. I agree with you about the food, some airlines try to hard, food at 30,000 ft is difficult enough to pull off, without getting to fancy. Those dishes looked great, except maybe the portion size. One of the be...Jump to post
Many Thanks for the report. The nap room is a huge advantage. I need to try them to OZ in J to see.
The meal offered seems decent and well executed.
Keep up the good work.
Seeing a report on MS is not common. I can't blame you for picking another carrier. MS is known to be a dry airline and not the best airline in the world. A reader asked me where do I credit my Star Alliance miles, I replied MS (I enrolled in sepo but already got 108k status). Weird choice you might...Jump to post
Dear AI readers, I’m sorry if it took so long to publish my inbound leg since I had my QR trip to Singapore for my GGL (out of 4 flights, 2 were just far from the world’s best Business class… trip to come).

Good review Classiclover.
We have missed each other by few days. I took off 4 days prior to your flight.
While the ARN-DOH-ARN were great the RT to SIN were not great at all..
Enjoy AKL and SYD !
Btw where do you credit the miles ? BA or QR ?
I flew with them earlier in the year in J/C, what a total disaster. FCO/LHR/JFK RT. Club world seats are very last century, food or lack of was an amazing mess.

Today I'm taking you to Bangkok, my final destination was PVG but I bought the ticket separately and won't be covered. BA is affordable in Business Class to Bangkok.

Dear Airliners readers, On my previous report, I shared why I picked the B787, the other side of the coin for the flight back is the departure time: 2:30 am landing at 5am. It’s the worst possible flight for a tourist. I mean, you have to either book one more night in the hotel, wander in the city o...Jump to post

Flying for the sake of flying it's how I would describe my journey that made me fly 8 long hauls in less than 10 days. I booked 2 RT from Tunis to KL at around 900€ each. I'm often asked, why.
