So what would you include in a "real F experience?" Just SQ, CX and EK?
I guess it is personal preference.

For those who got the email, are your reservations still there when you check online?

If EY and QR are not "real," (I'd disagree), then EK isn't either.

On that train of logic, it's Asian or bust (something with which I also disagree).

For me one of the main reasons going to MLE is the flights. DW and I have flown many times in what I call "fake F" so it will ne nice to fly "real F". As far as fun in the sun, I have done that so many times I can't remember.
You flew ELAL F?  ;)
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Both of mine are still on the Accor website, but not on the Angsana website. I couldn't pull them up on the Angsana website when I tried yesterday before I got the email, either.

I think many here are at a big disadvantage rating F service. Wouldn't one of the major factors be food?

When do they need to add PVR and CUN.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

The major factors are:

-Hard product
-Service
-Hard Product bonus perks like a shower
-Food
-Booze
-Lounges

Random thoughts:
-US airlines F is dead due to poor service.
-The ME3 don't have consistently good service, though I found EK to be better than the rest. Service is a huge part of the F experience and bad service will kill the whole thing.
-Asian airlines like JL, NH, and SQ have out of this world service. CX service can be more robotic and less warm than the rest of the Asia carriers.
-SQ suites are a step above the rest for privacy and the new suites look amazing.
-CX has by far the most comfortable bed, bedding, and seat.
-EY's seat and bed are spacious, but not particularly comfortable. Seat recline is also poor.
-EYs shower room is tiny and dingy. Its' not nearly as enjoyable as the EK shower spa which is much larger and feels more like a Park Hyatt than a Holiday Inn.
-You won't find food and champagne/wine reviews here, so look to FT if that's important.
-Lounges like LH FCT are nice to try out, but in the end of the day I can lounge at my home as well. It's not what makes or breaks the product.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
