Sacrificing my only F class leg of a trip to fly Asiana’s A380, but in C?
I am trying to plan my honeymoon this November. My future wife and I will be going to SE Asia, and I have a *A award flight booked to get to Phuket to start the trip. My return trip on CX C class is set (though I do have an alert to let me know if F space opens up).
My question is: do I keep my current flight to start my trip? Currently it is as follows:
IAD – BRU, UA F
BRU – ARN, SK C (I guess?)
ARN – BKK, TG C
BKK – HKT, TG C
I found another flight from JFK I was thinking of switching to:
JFK – INC, OZ C
INC – HKT, OZ C
Obviously on the new routing, I’d have to get up to JFK from DC, but that shouldn’t be an issue using BA Avios. Both routes are the same number of UA miles. Basically it comes down to: Should I sacrifice my only F class leg of the trip to fly Asiana’s a380, but in C?
@ MCDC — I would probably go with the latter routing. It’s much more direct, and United first class isn’t too exciting. Congrats on the honeymoon!
