Has anyone flew Jetstar business class, international. The plane is Boeing 787-8, checking online business class looks like Premium Economy (looks shit compared to Qantas/Virgin etc)

Can anyone confirm?

I can see how you thought that. But genuine question.

Needed feedback if anyone has had experienced

Woah! $7.5k round trip business class UK? That’s cheap!

Doing a small trip to Phuket with the missus Jetstar business is cheaper than, Thai/Qantas/Singapore airlines. Cheaper by about 2-3k

But if Jetstar isn’t proper business not worth it.

I always figured that Jetstar business class was basically like flying Qantas but you sat on the toilet the whole time.

I'll tell you this much, if you can avoid Jetstar, no matter what the class, then avoid them. Take Virgin Australia instead (avoid Tiger airlines like the plague).

I want to know @Blue_boost 's thoughts on those people who fly or consider flying with airlines such as jetstar?

I flew with virgin over 10 years ago on a domestic flight.

I was hungover and they wanted to charge me for a bottle of water?

I think I told the Stewardess off saying Richard Branson only has 6 billion dollars and his corporation wants to charge for water?

I ended up not paying for the water.
Still surprised I wasn't intercepted at the arriving terminal,arrested and getting my arse kicked for that!

I reckon even North Korean airlines wouldn't be so harsh?

No probs with Jetstar flown many times, mostly domestic, never business. Price plus flying time determines my airline.

Good thread, I'd love to have started it in my 2020 collection but beaten to the punch

Most people in business class are pretenders, they convince their workplace to pay for it.. but if the cost was to come out of their pocket, they would fly economy and find a flight near midnight where Noone would see them

Watch the Seinfeld episode where Jerry is in first class and Elaine was in economy .

Air NZ :tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy:

on a serious note, it’s good to be picky when flying and do your research, gotta do it right the first time,especially on 12+ hour hauls..!!!
