Great price to Sydney in biz, thanks for sharing.

Edit - ah just looked closer and saw the economy legs. Thought it was all biz at first! Thanks anyways.

Includes an overnight in Beijing on the outbound and a 7+ hour layover in Hangzhou on the outbound before then riding coach to SYD. On the return it's an overnight in Hangzhou as well.

This isn't a business fare per se. You do get one of the longer segments in business which is nice. But that's about it. Factor in two hotel nights and/or sleeping in the airport in Beijing and Hangzhou.

I just flew through Hangzhou last week on MF. Not a great airport to be stuck in for a long time. The ST+ lounge was OK but food choice was lacking as was beverage choice.
