Qantas Business Lounge & Flight Review: Wellington to Sydney

As I discussed, I don't think it's worth 40k Avios for a round trip to New Zealand from Australia. It is better to pay cash for coach and save your points. Still, it was interesting to see what flying Qantas business is like. As a company, Qantas has had a rough time competing with Virgin, the ever expanding number of competitors flying into Australia, and discount carriers.

Air China Business PVG-KIX: Different Plane, Same Product

The trick of my $200, 30,000 US AIR Miles ticket was that all flights must be on Air China metal. I've flown Air China many times and for the most part have not been impressed. I was excited that this flight was on an A321 versus the standard 737. Perhaps this would make the flight different.
