(EXPIRED) Nice Business Class fares to South America

This morning, First Class Flyer reported a good business class fare from Canada to South America. In researching that, I’ve found some great fares out of New York and nice deals out of Chicago, San Francisco, Vancouver, and other cities to many cities in northern South America, with the best prices available on Avianca and Copa, (and with American and Delta competing on some routes as well). This one is a little tricky — the Copa flights are widely bookable…

Best options for domestic first class awards

A newer version of this post is now available here: Best options for domestic first class awards The original post follows… Domestic first class is nicer than coach, but, in most cases, it’s hardly something to write home about.  Usually you’ll simply get a bigger seat and a few snacks and drinks, or a meal if you’re lucky.  If you’re really lucky, you might find yourself on an internationally configured aircraft flying a domestic route. …

An equipment swap gone right

Last month, I traveled to Europe to take up Wyndham on their 15K-per-night mansion-like estate. For the ride home, I booked a ticket on Tap Air Portugal. Several months ago, TAP was offering flights from Oslo to Boston or New York by way of Lisbon for just $408 one-way in business class. At the time, I still had a 50% pay-with-points rebate on my Business Platinum card (since expired), so I used a net ~20,000 Membership Rewards…
