Meet Up & Tips Thread AUH-CMB-CGK fare:

TIPS

PSA: You WILL receive TPs and Avios even on promotional fare I Class (the no miles restriction only applies to UL's own programme).
1. The footrest on the Neo is pretty useless. It's not deep enough to hold both feet, and too high for anyone over 5ft!
2. The IFE on the Neo is crisp, but the screens on the A321-200s are also very good - they fold out from the central armrest
3. Despite the 2300 departure time from AUH, meals are provided - and thus the lights come on. There's no blindfold in the UL miniature amenity kit, so bring your own.
4. Even with the seat in front of you fully reclined, there is plenty of space to get out
5. Despite the IFE and power boxes, there is a huge amount of legroom (even for me at 6ft).
6. Upon arrival into CGK, try and grab a golf-buggy to Passport Control. It is free, and tipping is hugely frowned upon (there's a sign) - it's much quicker than walking.
7. Dependent on your passport, you may have to fill in an Immigration form. UL do not stock them onboard.
8. Once through to the baggage hall, grab a Customs form, UL wont provide this on the plane, but you'll need it to exit into the main arrivals area.
9. If using Grab Taxi (around 60% cheaper than the official airport taxis), head to the right once through into the main Arrivals area. It will lead into the car park, where you will meet your driver.
10. UL use Check-In Desks C5-C9 - between entrances 2 and 3. There is Security upon entry, but only for your baggage.
11. The Saphire CGK lounge has poor air-con, but decent drinks and acceptable food choices. Good wifi too, with views of the runway, so you can spot your plane landing. The buffet area has the best air-con if you're warm.
12. There is no Fast Track for UL passengers, and be cautious of the Ladies Only Lane at security - which often has shorter queues, but which I couldn't use.
13. If it's a bussed departure from CMB (clue:the downstairs gates) don't bust a gut to kick your heels in the lounge. J-class passengers are the very last ones to be picked (by a dedicated bus). If you are last minute, let one of the supervisors know and he/she will facilitate your passage through security. This can be a successful ploy if you are simply impatient and have a J-class bc
14. At CGK UL will check bags on separate tickets to final destination -- reportedly this holds even where non-OneWorld carriers are involved.

Although Iím aware itís already 13th February in Sri Lanka now... so maybe the discount has been applied.
Is the £599 figure DXB or AUH?

I get the same from AUH for my Sept dates and 3025 from DXB so discount is 14-15%.

For a valentine day sale I'm not feeling the love!

Sale fares are up and running, but alas, only the 25% rebate. Even the one-day only sale on Jan 16 was, as all the other sales, down 40%. Personally made four reservations for DXB-CGK in late December 2019, for travel in May and November 2020, price AED2685 for all. The two tix I recently used was bought in September 2019 for AED2615. Present sale price of AED3025 from DXB, (2855 from AUH) not as impressive, so I'm presently considering to pass this time, will look into a couple of other deals tomorrow before deciding.

The first thing that came to my mind was that the frequent TP-running on the UL CGK route, and sale prices also for other routes has increased demand enough not to merit a sale rebate of more than 25%?

TBH, I'm expecting a 40% sale again in some weeks, though.

The new day starts earlier in CMB, IST being UTC + 5:30.

But no worries, at least 35 more hours to go

Hello FT😃

This is my first ever post here so bound to be wrong,sorry about that, however you have to give it to me for trying.

Im as my name suggests winging it with one world, I had a funny 5 minutes back in June last year when booked my first ever first class ticket for my mum and I, it felt good so I did some more research and I now find myself tying here in FT.

I have some how managed silver status and with this tier point run with the rest of my flights booked will achieve gold this year. Hopefully reading all that has been written here I have got it right with sales and ticketed fares. I do rabbit on so forgive me, I think the whole purpose of this post was to have it added to the wiki. So please if possible and I’ve done it right as requested.

Looking in July I only see AED3555 (normal price) on DXB CGK. Tried both the general site and the UAE site. Am I missing something? Thanks!

There is a blackout period for the sale in July so it looks like the sale price is only available from the 21st July.

Origin - Destination

Blackout periods

Dubai – All

23 June – 20 July 2020

29 July – 01 August 2020

No. IB+ has their distance hurdle at 3,000 miles.

This would be 4 x 225 with IB+.

Is the 25% discount off the base fare before taxes & fees? as the overall price of my flights is 14-15% less, either that or I've forgotten how to do math, which is entirely possible!

Present sale price of AED3025 from DXB, (2855 from AUH) not as impressive, so I'm presently considering to pass this time, will look into a couple of other deals tomorrow before deciding.

The first thing that came to my mind was that the frequent TP-running on the UL CGK route, and sale prices also for other routes has increased demand enough not to merit a sale rebate of more than 25%?

TBH, I'm expecting a 40% sale again in some weeks, though.
You reminded me in December that I only had 3 hrs left to book because of the time difference, sadly I didn't get the flights booked in time, which is on me. Having waited 44 days or whatever it was, like you I was hoping for a similar size discount to last time as for 2 of us for 2 runs that's an extra £350-£400. I did, at the time, take advantage of the WT+ positioning flights in the BA sale, so I now feel like I'm playing a game of chicken. If I don't book something before Sept we'll have 9 days in AUH! Fingers crossed for better next time.
