Destinations / Itineraries Should I cancel my ticket?

    I booked AF/KL from HKG/BHX and LHR/HKG. I am not in any ffp in Skyteam but I am in QRPC (OW). I saw a fare that was approx 4620USD on QR but I already booked AF/KL using 3975USD. Should I cancel and pay the penalty for the better experience and qualifying points (I don't usually fly QR)?

    If you're on one of AirFrance's planes with the new reverse herringbone seat, I'd probably keep that booking. Their soft product is pretty decent too.

    Personally, I'd prefer an ultra long haul and short flight combo you're getting with AF/KLM versus two medium-ish flights on QR. However, if you do switch, QR's product is pretty decent, especially on their A380/A350/787s

    Well when you factor in the cancellation fee and the price of the new ticket, youre paying over $5k. As great as QR is, I dont think it's worth the hassle and premium.
