I’m booking a reward flight from Zurich to Hong Kong using Qantas Points. I have the hard choice of deciding whether my wife and I fly business or first class? What do people suggest? Cathay Pacific have direct flights available in both classes. I have enough points for First but I’m not sure if I should save them as there is about 110,000 point difference with taxes similar in cost.
There is also Business class availability on Emirates A380s but this extends the travel time by about 5 hrs with a stop in Dubai. Taxes are also significantly higher i.e. approx $300 vs $1000. Is Emirates worth the extra time and money?
