One more comment I think, I'm not sure but QF 744 is not equipped with F cabin, the Sydney flight that originated NY is the 744, therefore if you book this flight with Avios you won't have the option of F, so technically there's no way of booking QF in F with BA Avios and put the rate of a single flight.

Does BA allow mixed cabin?

Isn't BA segment by segment, which makes the mixed cabin question moot?

Since this is considered one long flight it has a different rule.... That's why I think it wouldn't be possible to get BA to book F, because then they will have to split the flight in 2... JFK-LAX is a 744 and LAX-SYD is a A-380, both flights are QF 12 though, so Y and J will go fine but F I think not

What do you guys think?

Also, should I delete the Aniston video link and reference?
Thoughts on how I dealt with ilherman's post?

I think you'll get a lot of people complaining about the link...

Yup, I guess I'll just delete it before publishing.

1) Aside from the JL notes, what are you adding that hasn't been parroted already in the blogosphere? A day late and a dollar short it seems to me.
2) I would not point out or link to ilherman's post, which is potentially incendiary, lacks a basis in fact, and in light of the latest development seems wide of the mark.
3) I like "Taking a neutron bomb to deal with a fight at a soccer game" better than "Why use a nuclear bomb to solve a problem that a sharpshooter could take care of?"  ;)

At this point, I'd say leave it. All your readers that this affects and that care about this must've heard about it by now. All those that don't; this is irrelevant to. It'll look funny posting it a week later than ever other blogger, IMO. I'd say just let dead dogs lie.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

It adds to the post but I think most people who'll appreciate it have probably seen it anyways...

-Did Emirates reach out to Alaska as Ilherman posits and demand that they stop making them look bad? Is there another explanation for their behavior?
Typo. If you do end up posting.
