By the numbers. This was my 1276th flight ever and my 46th flight this year. It was my 79th time at Bangkok aiport and my 55th into Brisbane, Australia. It is my 8th flight on the Boeing 787, a plane I rate at 4.7 out of 5.
I booked the flight using 40,000 life miles. To buy the seat would have cost $USD1830 direct from Thai Airways , the cheapest option for this Business Class ticket. I currently value my Lifemiles at 1.30625 cents each meaning the ticket cost me the equivalent of $522.5 plus taxes and charges of $73.07. A total of $USD595.5. Incredibly an Economy seat on the same flight bought from the cheapest online travel agent would have cost me $USD 993.94! Using points in this way, was an excellent choice.
Availability at this peak time (it is a school holiday time in both Australia and Thailand ) improved closer to the date of travel with multiple seats opening up across the week just four days before travel! This suited me, as I needed to changed my original travel planes and the better option was to take this flight.
The Lifemiles booking process was very easy -after three tries! My suggestion is keep trying even when life miles times out! I do not like the Thai booking engine. It is very clunk y and not user friendly.
Choosing a seat is a really weird process.
