Access to a Business Class lounge before a flight to the UK or Europe is one of the 5 Business Class Benefits we wrote about previously and is highly sought after. As Qatar Airways doesn’t have its own lounge at Auckland Airport, the Fine Travel team is frequently asked which lounge Business Class passengers can use.
With an attractive price point, the option of a free 5 star stopover in Abu Dhabi and a reputation for luxury, Etihad Airways Business Class is popular with Fine Travel clients looking for discounted Business Class airfares to the UK and Europe. The announcement of additional flights between Abu Dhabi and to London should improve connection times over Abu Dhabi.
Since starting to fly a Boeing 777-200ER to New Zealand in 2017, Qatar Airways Business Class to the UK and Europe has been one of our most popular options for clients. Fine Travel Consultants have flown Business Class to the UK and Europe with Qatar Airways and experienced an onboard walk around of the Business Class cabin when it is in Auckland.
Fine Fine Travel Consultant Sunita Shalivahan has flown Business Class with China Southern Airlines twice since 2016 (from Auckland) and was invited for an onboard inspection in April 2019. For clients looking for discounted Business Class airfares to the UK / Europe with full lie flat seats, China Southern is a welcome option in the New Zealand travel market. Sunita updated the Fine Travel team on her most recent experience.
