No dates seem to have "guest" level tickets.  Did EY change something?  If so, what availability is needed to book with AA?

Fine. We'll let it slide this time.

Sounds like a heck of a routing. All EY there and all QF back?

Correct. I changed my tickets 3 times before departure and didn't have to pay $150 any of the Times But that's not for now.

I had my best sleep in the last 2 years on CX.

Beats even SQ and EK.
But didn't try QF yet,  so who knows.

A380 Apartment bed is probably the best out there. (Never tried QF)

Inaccurate.


My mistake.  I was searching the standard EY site instead of where I should've been.

ETA:  Which is preferable?  777 or 787, and is F worth it over J in one more than the other?  Trying to decide whether to fly back to JFK or IAD.

787 is brand new product. F is Suites (not apartment as in A380). J is same as A380, allegedly best business product on market (have not been). Reports are that F hard product is only marginally superior to J in new 787.

Great insight, thanks.  I guess I'm flying into IAD on the 787 in J.  Doesn't sound like it's worth the extra 22.5k for F.

Personally, I'd absolutely spend the extra 22.5K for F.

The F suite is glorious, the service significantly more attentive, and combined with the F lounge in AUH, it's a no-brainer for me.

EY F was one of my favorite experiences.

Nvm then, F it is.  I just wish I was going in January instead of September, so I could experience the A380.  I'll just have to make another trip.

QF is better than EY for bed. Just something to think about. What's the point in a bed and a seat if you can't have both of them at the same time? If you make your bed on EY apartments you can't sit in the seat. Bottom line IMO QF is better.
