SQ or EY First Class ?

SQ or EY First Class ?

  1. JoeB

    Hi All

    Just got a bit of a general. Next year I will be travelling back from Europe and have enough points to fly First class home to Australia. The only issue is I cannot decide between Etihad or Singapore Airlines as both First class products are excellent.

    To give you a background to my thinking, Im not being picking in which origin port in Europe to leave from due to ill take nearly any availability that suits my date range. I will be travelling right into the Gold Coast (OOL) in Australia which is a semi-regional airport so my long haul will most likely be going through/connecting into Sydney (SYD) or Melbourne (MEL). In terms of timetables Etihad would/could get me home in a sooner time frame into the Gold Coast due to it does land early afternoon into SYD. However SQ is offering more of a tradition landing into SYD early into the morning, so i would get home around midday. Either way in timing doesn’t really bother me but just cannot decide.

    Anyway back to the question, which product do I choose in terms best overall ? As Etihad’s A380 hard product looks great but SQ is known for its service… So cannot decide.

    Any thoughts, experiences or perspectives will be great 🙂
    Thanks

    Joe – You seem to be quite flexible which is great when it comes to award redemption. I would say, if you get the new EY F then go for it. If not, go the SQ way. I think both are phenomenal products but EY’s new F product seems to be out of the world. Entire bed, and an enclosed room with on demand dining, etc. I never even imagined there would be such thing for passenger aircraft.
