Ah, yes, last time it was $900; and now $1,300, wow!

I remember when it used to be $750 US LAX-NAN and $750 Fiji Dollars NAN-LAX.

The old Singapore-leased in 747-400s were definitely showing their age. The A330s will be welcome, albeit they will indeed offer less selection for awards (and apparently significantly more expensive counter upgrades).

Ni sa moce, Air Pacific; Ni sa bula, Fiji Airways.

Then again, they maybe just didn't want to bother doing it so they picked a number from thin air and hope I wouldn't bother them further. They picked right that day.

I kinda liked how dingy FJ was. Really looking forward to the new aircraft & have just booked a ticket for later in the year when they should be flying.


ETA: Just had a look at the FJ website and a paid counter upgrade is US$1300.
ThanxsisC, you did not have to call QF - you could have done the search online via their website.
