Nice!

Yep. Nearly $600 YQ/departure tax. Hope to tack on a TLV-LHR leg to lower it to under $300, almost certainly won't ticket it otherwise.

Glad some people understand why it's special ;)

Special maybe but why waste the points on an inferior product when you can fly Q suites?

I'm booked on a modified Qsuites for Sept IIRC.
Qsuites isn't avail.
This has a special appeal to me.
Qsuites is a full 2 stops back home, while this isn't exactly 2.

True, but I can say I am proud I have never in my life stepped on a BA plane!

Not sure why that's something to be proud of, other than the ridiculous YQ, i like them.

BA1 supposedly has a private jet feel to it, especially when empty.

You just answered my question and in addition their F= Best J class at best.

BA1 supposedly has a private jet feel to it, especially when empty.

Hence why it's a cool redemption.

Was referring to which program and how many miles you had booked the flight with.
Booked the JFK-NBO-SEZ through flyingblue for 115k miles + huge fees per person.
SEZ-HRE was 15k United
I don't remember how many miles the HRE-NBO-AMS-NYC was but it was through FB also so probably similar amount of miles (I was a bit tipsy when I got the notification to book the flights).

Added RJ for now. Taxes lowered to just over $300.
Should go down another $10 or so with the Jordanian fees removed if BA will open

JFK-ZRH-BKK with LX 2 I class with infant. 155k AC with 20% bonus from MR. No fuel surcharge.
SIN-MLE with MI coach. 37k SQ for 2 seats.
MLE-SIN-TPE-JFK with SQ and BR 2 seats I class with infant. 150k AC with 20% bonus transfer. No fuel surcharge.
Jan.-Feb. 2k20
AC is definitely the best for infant!!

Held and intend to ticket SQ 787-10 J SIN-SGN for 21.5k+$49.80 SGD.
Just noticed an aircraft swap to a 333, seems they are not operating the Dreamliners on this route any longer (as indicated below). I was doing this to try SQ's new short-haul J, so now with the swap I'll have to decide whether to do it, or do something else.
