Yesterday I posted about how Cathay Pacific Asia Miles disappeared from the Membership Rewards transfer page over the weekend.
Asia Miles is a 1:1 transfer partner with Amex Membership Rewards, and can be useful for some oneworld redemptions, especially in light of the British Airways Executive Club devaluation.
Anyway, I followed up with American Express, and they said they were just working on some website maintenance. Cathay Pacific Asia Miles has once again returned to the Membership Rewards transfer page.
That’s as I expected, given that they’d almost certainly give advance notice if the partnership were discontinued.
This isn’t nearly as big of a deal as when Chase Ultimate Rewards and Korean Air SkyPass temporarily suspended their partnership late last year, whereby it wasn’t possible to transfer points between the two programs for over two months.
It does remind me of just how sharp and observant you guys are, though. Nothing gets past y’all, given how many comments and emails I got from people concerned the American Express/Cathay Pacific partnership was ending.
