PR was better than expected.

My last PR flight DPS-MNL-LHR was outstanding,crew very professional and friendly (genuine)
flat bed seat comfort for 15 hours on MNL-LHR.I slept for a good 8 hrs.

​​​​Ok,the Manilla lounge is hardly top class,I did only pay 200.00 for Business class😊
mileage credited to my Etihad account.

It's definitely Comfortable.

[QUOTE=Croupier;28058543]I thought the premium fare deals forum were for people that want to fly in comfort for a good price?

A flat beds seat in Business class,roundtrip DXB-MNL-SYD for 750.00 is an Excellent price and comfortable.
And you do earn mileage.

My last Sydney trip on a combo First/Business class fare with MH cost me 3570.00 in January.

There are a lot of VERY good deals on PR. Not only DXB to SYD/NRT/SIN.

Any Middle East PR origin (DXB, AUH, DOH, KWI, RUH, JED, etc) to MNL is ~$670 USD RT in Biz.

Any Middle East to AUS (CAI, MEL, SYD, BNE, etc..) has more variance, but AUH and DXB both have flights at $943 USD RT. Only thing to be careful about is to see which biz product is offered as some flights have the older PR product.

Also, there are some other very good deals to be had as well. Specifically, YYZ to MNL for $1800 RT in biz (though on the not as good angled flat 777 product) is excellent. YYZ to SYD is $2491, which isn't amazing, but much better than anything else east coast to AUS.

Tldr; this is a hotter deal than would initially appear if you play around with this.

I'd be a little careful. Not sure if it's the same ex DXB and other Middle East airports, but the 330-300 they fly ex AUH doesn't have J class. It's PE and Y, and the PE seats from all reports are pretty ordinary.

I suspect this would be the same from all the GCC airports.

I hope it works out for you! Won't be the first time an OTA has over-marketed something.

Let us know, but the problem is that PR run A330's out of the Middle East, and none of their 330 fleet has business, according to the PR website, and from what I've been told by people who have used them.

That's also the reason you can't book a seat in business out of DXB/AUH to MNL on the PR website.

thanks for the Update,will check with the travel agent.
They can refund in full if not "Business class" .

Some you win,some you lose-You have to be willing to gamble!

Can't book Business class on PR website so looks like a "error" in this deal as has been mentioned above.

Shows as Z class on Expedia and Matrix. I looked up the fare classes on the PR website and Z is discount business.

So they do! Seems to depend on how you get to the seat map - clicking through from this link shows the 18 J seats on the 363 seat 330, but if you select the 414 seater then click on the aircraft list beside the seat map it doesn't change!

Mmm. There are many Mabuhay members here. Thanks to the OP I purchased a DXB-MEL ticket. Thanks.
