Pune call centre was up and running today 7th May. I made two reservations NRT to KUL and KUL to LHR. I had a choice of airlines and the girl was most helpful. She was called MIAL.
Use cash plus miles. It goes a long way. NRT -BKK -KUL , combination of SIA and LUFT was 11,250miles plus £145.80 ( Cash& Taxes) in business class . Was offered ANA and SIA, but turned down ANA as I was not sure of the 767 configuration and having travelled on Japan Airlines 767 in the region it was a bad business class seat with 38 in legroom.
KUL-BKK-LHr on Thai (30,000 miles plus £289) in business class.
Can anyone say DC is bad? Mark Roberts, over to you?
