Well I’ve accomplished step one and have booked a business class flight in January to the UK return via points. I’m flying;
Sydney (SYD) > Dubai (DXB)
Dubai (DXB) > Gatwick, London (LGW)
I’m okay with that, the transfer allowed makes me nervous but great airline and aircraft (Emirates/A380).
Coming home there seems to be NO business classic reward flights out of England to Sydney. So I’m flying;
Heathrow, London (LHR) > Nice (NCE)
Nice (NCE) > Dubai (DXB)
Dubai (DXB) > Bangkok (BKK)
Bangkok (BKK) > Sydney (SYD)
I don’t so mind the waiting and the time in the air, but it really eats into my holiday time on the ground. First leg leaves 0820 4/2/18 and I don’t get home until 0900 6/2/18.
Can anyone suggest a better way home?
