Is it time for UA to officially open some I class?

Doubt they will, they sell out, but they should be bale to add some routes and be successful. IMHO

Other than being selfish that you happen to know about it, why not?
It's a published help number on Qantas's website. And the cities that aren't bookable are clearly just a bug as a good agent can book them just fine.

I guess it shouldn’t be any different then the twitter chats which everyone knows about. My apologies.

Screenshots of those airports please.
QF will show more airports in the return section than in the outbound section

Nope, never heard of that either.
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.

I am pleasantly surprised at the availability in Business in Elal though Qantas. How bad is the Business Class on the 777s? Would it make sense to work my schedule around to book on a 787 with the full lie flat seats?

Seems that none of the over night flights are on the 787.
777 are just fine comfort wise. It’s not near as private though.
