Best business class options to Perth

I will be looking to splurge on bisness cass tickets for me and the wife to go and visit relatives in Perth ,probably early December 2013.

We have previously done Emirates business class to New Zealand from Birmingham.

Ideally this time we would like to go from Birmingham but understand this limits our options so would not be averse to other airports

Which carrier gives us the best bang for buck,comfort,experience etc ?

We do nt want a stopover as we want to get the journey done asap.

There are no nonstops, BHX-PER next December, or from LHR, LGW, STN or MAN. You're going to have to connect someplace.

Bang for buck is very much a subjective thing.

As you say BHX limits you to essentially Emirates if you're after on stop options. A drive down to London would open up a world of possibilities, quite literally, including round the world ticket options.

Singapore Airlines is very hard to beat and its schedule/frequency between LHR and PER will give you some flexibility.

If Heathrow does not appeal Qatar fly ex Manchester one stop connection at Doha to Perth. Their business class gets good reviews on airlinequality.com and their prices are pretty good

Thanks all for the tips,I have been looking at Singapore Airlines amd it looks good.

Anyone have any pointers as to the best type of seats i.e proper flatbeds or pods etc.

On their A380 fleet ex Lhr they are flat and wide but get mixed reviews. Look at airlinequality.com. All the info you need is on the Internet.
