    I know it's not new: but just to make it as explicit as it is. If you hold an F/A/J subclass ticket, you can get a limo transfer from LHR to a point within 100miles from it. you'd have to contact uk_sales_ops. If you hold an F/J award, or ZCDIU subclass, dont waste your time. i've been rejected twice.

    Pretty standard for award tickets not able to enjoy those perks
     
  3. The free limo is also available for the trip to LHR

    Thanks for this tip. I had no idea! Wonder why it's not publicized more?

    they do try their best to make you not able to use it, then i dont know why they have this benefit all together.

    To reiterate, Z and U (F & J subclass respectively) will not work with the transfer

    I've only taken advantage of this service once. Which was September 2008 arriving from CX251 on an "A" booking class.

    So things changed. Live with it. Not giving this perk to all revenue ticket holders doesn't make the airline not a real world airline. Let's not forget the basic functionality of airline is to transport passengers and cargo safely from airport A to airport B. All others are just add-ons for marketing

    We are still talking about this perk that you think a real airline will provide to all revenue passengers and CX doesn't.

    i did not say CX should provide it to all rev pax. i'm just making a point that lower J classes dont get it explicitly so others wont need to waste their time. the original note posted by CX 5 years or more ago was not at all explicit as per one of those threads in FT. and the discussion did go on and on on who can or cannot get it. i only made it as explicit as possible.

    You are still not making any sense here :confused:

    You said every real airline have free luggage delivery to address of your choice to all revenue pax and it is a cheap move that CX doesn't. And yet you said you did not say CX should provide this to all rev pax.

    Between back to the argument that's not what airlines do and not having such service does not make them non real airlines.
