NYC->SIN / HKG->NYC redemption question

Hello,

Sorry if wrong area to post this --

If I was looking to experience of the best first/business class on a Oneworld partner from NYC -> SIN and HKG -> NYC ... what would people recommend?

Seems Cathay only flies the old 773? Thanks in advance...

I have ~500k BA miles

Thank you!!

Old 773 or not CX first class suites are supposed to be one of the best in the best business. When we make this trip in 2012 I'm using my BA miles to fly CX F. It will only cost 300 miles in F.

The old 773 has first class suites? I thought they only had 'normal' seats Md only business class, not even first class.

CX shows some flights HKG-JFK on the new 77D, but it depends when you are traveling. Not sure if the new config has FC suites, but for some reason I don't think so.

Check out the CX forumn for answers.

77D has F and the new J. The "D" designation differentiates this a/c from the 77A which has old LH J. All CX flights between HKG and JFK have F.

Ok I will ask on there... Was sure if that or say AA/JAL was a better option for those flights. From what I have read I thought CX was best but I am def. no pro. Thanks

Why not do BA from NYC - LHR and back. Then do QF (A380) LHR-SIN and CS (A380) HKG-LHR.
