has anybody else noticed that emirates special offers to Asia and beyond aren't really connecting flights especially from the northern airports . you see a flight advertised from £549 to Bangkok but when you try and book 1 with a good connection its impossible .the price jumps to £750 + .its time some 1 stopped airlines from advertising flights that have 10hr + transfer times as a connecting flight when really its a stopover .Ive also noticed if you are a skywards saver with emirates their upgrade miles to buiss class is extremely poor value now .they have introduced a tier system on upgrades now so if u buy a discounted ticked they will charge extra miles to upgrade from that ticket.and the difference is 10,000 miles extra . lol. value ?. not i think .!!
