As Economy cabins become more cramped, getting the most legroom is increasingly important to our comfort, especially on longer flights. This simple app helps not only travellers at the back of the plane but those in all cabins to maximise their space.
American Airlines is running another promotion for purchasing AAdvantage miles – offering up to 85,000 bonus miles plus 10% off which comes out to 1.83 US cents per mile.
With an upgrade to the A380 superjumbo on this busy route, Qantas has released lots of Premium Economy award seats and a batch of lie-flat Business seats during December and January.
Here is our monthly round-up of current deals to maximise your points earn with Qantas, Velocity and American Express Membership Rewards. There are numerous offers of 100,000 bonus sign-up points.
These awards are becoming more popular and are a great option for those wishing to redeem their points for more space and improved service on longer flights.
Travellers in our third-largest city will finally get lie-flat Business Class seats on all Singapore Airlines flights from October. The switch to Singapore’s newest aircraft is also likely to increase award availability, representing a great use of KrisFlyer miles or Velocity points.
KrisFlyer are offering 30% off their usual full redemption prices for Business and Economy travel to and from Singapore and a range of destinations, with highlights being the Queensland capital, China, India and Dubai.
For a dedicated First Class lounge, Singapore Airlines’ flagship facility does a good job, with friendly staff and an attractive design, but it is let down by unremarkable food and a lack of extra amenities.
This is one of the world’s best ways to fly, with a comfortable bed and high degree of privacy, but it is due for a makeover. Still a great use of KrisFlyer miles or Velocity points.
RewardPay allows business owners to take advantage of credit card points earn opportunities for making business payments they could have made by EFT. There’s a fee – but if you use the right cards, which we dig into in more depth in this article – the cost can make sense.
Next month, I’ll be embarking on a four-week trip from the US to Australia via Southeast Asia and back again, taking seven flights across all four cabins. Here is how you can learn from my experience to help you book your next international trip.
Fly Cathay Pacific First Class for just 26,000 points, enjoy Emirates luxury with a return trip to New Zealand, and forgo high cash fares in Economy by using your Qantas Points to their maximum value.
There is no reason to avoid this product, but at the same time, no reason to actively seek it out either. Having said that, thanks to the spacious seat and comfortable bed, I would not hesitate to fly in their First Class again if the opportunity came up.
