A few days ago I posted about how (almost) frustratingly easy it was to book first class award tickets on Cathay Pacific. There really aren’t very many better award redemption values out there, so I went ahead and locked in a pair of first class tickets to Bali for next March using 135,000 American AAdvantage miles per person. Ultimately I can change and redeposit the tickets for free as an Executive Platinum member (which I don’t intend to do), so it seemed like a no brainer.
Anyway, in looking at space for March of next year, I can’t help but notice that a lot of the San Francisco to Hong Kong flights now have two fewer first class seats in inventory than a couple of days ago. While I won’t take credit for all of it, I’m dying to know how many of you have booked/held first class award seats between San Francisco and Hong Kong on Cathay Pacific over the past few days for travel next year?
I guess I might just see some of you in Bali…
It’s funny how small the frequent flyer world is at times, since I relayed the story about how I stayed up to book an award ticket for a client from Melbourne to Los Angeles in Qantas first class, only to find that someone else snagged the space minutes earlier in the wee hours of the night. As confirmed in the comments section of the previous post, it was a reader!
