I'm booked on Emirates to Harare late July. Getting there had more available dates than returning .

This is very good news. I’ll take a look at them for my 2022 and 2023 Zim Safaris. I’d love to try their business class!

I'll let you know how it is once we get back. Reasonable pricing right now. We used AMEX points, but my parents paid cash- a little over 4k per round trip

Business class. True international first is a whole different level of investment - damn I miss those days as a Vice President in a major corporation! :cry:

My last international first flight was out of Dubai following a bid negotiation in Riyadh. First class had a shower and true individual compartments with a sliding door, and the seat didn't merely go flat, but made into what was essentially a single bed. Food and service were actual five-star.

Apparently, Emirates is offering a fire sale on its first cabins as well for like $1K over business.

Well that makes sense. First class to Japan was in the 28k range for our company last year, I'm not sure what business costs. That's above my paygrade :ROFLMAO:

I would be surprised if you were disappointed.

Highly recommended for the long hauls. The lay flat seats and the lounge privilege at the airport were more than worth the cost to me.

Wow, wonder if it applies to upgrades from business, I'll have to check for my upcoming flight.

That is what I was trying to say - though not very clearly.

I couldn't do anything online as I got an error saying I had some options that permitted no changes. I will get Travel Express on it. Even if it is $1K per Dubai leg it would be worth it. I can justify regular business cost but First class is a bit much when I am not billing it to a client ;)

Thanks! Fingers crossed I can do it next year

I booked through Travel Express with Lori about a month ago. When I inquired recently about trying to possibly just upgrade the longer leg of the flight from Houston to Dubai ot business, she replied they could only upgrade the total flight not just one section. That was my understanding. I was quoted $2k more over the $1,800 I paid for coach. With my wife going also, it would have been $4k total so guess we'll be flying coach as I can kill a few more animals with $4k exta :)

I talked to Lori as well this morning. She said it still shows as $13K for First class ticket. More than double a business class ticket. Guess I'll have to suffer flying business. ;)

I am sure she would know - found where I saw it. Probably just certain routes. Suffering in their business class does build character. :cool:

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
