Is Oman Air Business Class any good?
There are currently two Oman Air Business Class products on the market. The old Business Class is very popular as it feels more like an old-fashioned First Class than Business,
but the new Business Class is meant to be extremely good too:
What Miles can I earn?
Oman Air is not a member of any of the big alliances, but you can earn Etihad Guest Miles at a rate of 150% of flown Miles. A Return to Bangkok, for example, would therefore earn about 18,000 Miles. Remember that you can easily pool Etihad Miles in a family account, so could potentially earn a very useful amount if there’s more than one person flying.
Alternatively, you could get 200% of the flown Miles in Oman Air’s own Sindbad loyalty programme, but I confess to total ignorance about Sindbad…
You have to reposition to Paris to take advantage of these fares, which obviously adds to the expense, but it should still work out pretty good value overall. Besides, it’s surely tough to argue that a night or two in Paris is really too much of a negative…
