But why would you assume he paid for it.

Between that and the LX... it's not inconceivable.

If my memory serves me right, he admitted in one of his posts that some of his trips are revenue fares.

Not sure what's the big deal if his company pays for his first class trips or he has enough money to afford it.

He must be a real nutjob if none of the above applies to him.

...to your apparently inexperienced and/or adolescent view :)

$40K x 6 =240K HH=.0019 per point. Which means ~$140/night at the Conrad MLE.

I'll buy HH at that price all day.

Diamond is just gravy.
What's the x6?

Well, this is an underwhelming development:

KE's new J and F:





Yeah, they both look like J to me, too.

But, hey, at least they offer an F class to more destinations than other Asian carriers like OZ, NH, CX, etc.

And LX on A333:

Never said it was good.
Just saying that they're not replacing the 388 product with this.

And all I was saying was that it's subpar for the 333, let alone for the 388.

Not to mention, it's likely the JFK<>ICN route will be upgraded to the whale by then.

Ding Ding Ding!

OZ is starting A380 service on the JFK<>ICN route beginning on June 13, 2015.

Initially will start on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays, and will be daily beginning a month later.

Got lucky and picked a good ^ day. Already picked my seats.  Could be one of my last hoorahs in *A F, given the usual astronomical pricing.

Ouch, I'm booked on this route in April.

It's nice if you can get it, but don't lose any sleep over it. Essentially same product, but more space and just a bit fresher.
