China Eastern First class available on FB?

While looking for a flight to Shanghai, I stumbled upon a first class ticket on MU and was surprised! This seems new as I have never seen any other first class ticket other than LP ones on flying blue! Donít know if itís really first class or just business class and this is a bug !

MU does indeed offer a First Class, but it is a far cry from La PremiŤre. Yes, it is an enclosed suite (6 of them on the 77W), but the soft product isn't going to match that of AF/LH/BA.

Yes this is a new feature for FB, we are progressively introducing partner F redemption. Canít promise all partners will offer it, but our goal is to introduce more partner F award opportunities in the future.

Will F redemption on partners also be limited to Platinum (and one seat per account)?

No restrictions (on our end) on partner F awards. Each airline sets their own reward policy/inventory.
