The whole shower thing? Yeah, not overrated.

Never felt more refreshed after traveling 7000 miles.
Sure it was the 5 minutes in hot water and not the luxury of the cabin and service?

Two things:

Dubai and Abu Dhabi are amazing cities.  Really regretting not staying here for 3 or so days.

From the lounges I've experienced thus far, EK F lounge is disappointing; a distant fourth behind FCT, and TG BKK, and EY AUH.

JL F, while not as roomy, is definitely prettier than CX F.

While pretty/easy on the eyes may be useful feature when picking a spouse, in an airline seat though I'll pick roomy and comfortable every time.
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.

CGK-NRT

JL, at 1-2-1, will never have the spaciousness that CX does,  at 1-1-1,  but it's pretty, which does count for something.

That's why you should strive for beauty and braun!

Wouldn't hesitate to fly them again, though.

USA-Asia in F = 70k AS
USA-Asia-Africa in F with a stopover in Asia = 70K AS.

Crazy sick deal.

I don't think CX flies F to JNB.

They don't. Not currently anyway.

But you get 13.5 hours in CX J and a stopover for the same price as just F to HKG.
