Dubai business class return from £1057 with great seats

Oman air business class review

Oman Air business class

Last year I got a bargain flight from Paris to Dubai with Oman Air. Whilst they are not part of any alliance, I think they have a fantastic business class product and at these prices, it is well worth giving them a try. I would say they are not far off Qatar’s standards for onboard service and comfort, although they don’t have suites as such. However, the window seats with the privacy screen up, almost feel like a suite. You can read my full review of Oman Business class here.

Oman Air are now doing a similar offer from Paris for £1057. The rules are:

  • Book by: Tickets must be issued on/before 14 Jul 19.
  • Travel: Valid for travel commencing on/before 30 Apr 20.
  • Minimum stay: 3 nights
  • Maximum stay: 3 months
  • Transfers: Unlimited
  • Stopovers: 2 permitted free
  • Refundable: Yes for a fee
  • Changeable: Yes for a fee

You can book direct with Oman Air here or try Skyscanner to see if you can get it any cheaper through an online agent.


Put the name of your choice on a plane…

During the month of July, American Airlines are offering a very unique opportunity to have the name of someone special who has been affected by cancer on an AA aircraft. The idea is to raise money for Stand up to Cancer. When you donate $25 or more to Stand Up To Cancer have the opportunity to honour a loved one by adding their name onto the American Airlines official Stand Up To Cancer plane.

The final plane design (to be revealed later this year) will incorporate names included with these donations, signifying that together, we can soar above cancer. The special aircraft will be an American Airlines Airbus A321. The plane, which will begin flying this autumn, will be wrapped with a special SU2C design that includes the names submitted. I have submitted one in honour of my Dad who passed away from a brain tumour.

100% of your donation received by SU2C will support Stand Up To Cancer’s collaborative cancer research programs.

You can find the donation page here.

You may also want to join up to their special MO Fans program. It is not the same as most loyalty programs in that there are no points to collect or status to gain. MO describe it as a “customer recognition program”. However, if you are planning a stay at a MO it is well worth joining for free. Every member gets free wi-if, a welcome amenity and special events and offers for members only. The most interesting benefit is the 2 additional privileges you can choose when you book your stay on

You can choose from:

  • Early Check-In
  • Room Upgrade
  • Late Check-Out
  • Streaming WiFi
  • Daily Breakfast
  • Celebratory Treat
  • Dining or Spa Credit
  • Pressing Services

You also get the chance to record your preferences for your stay in your profile. This only really appears to be what water you want for turndown at the moment and I think they could do a lot more with this section. You can join for free here.

  1. My only concern with Oman Air is that they are still stating that from ATH – MCT and return that the plane is a Boeing 737-8 Max. I know that they will use another plane until the problems are resolved (or otherwise), but it means that I don’t know what type of business class seat I will get.

Have your say
