You do have to pay to play though — and those who took a spin on Monday did in fact hit the jackpot as Cathay Pacific has announced that they will honor the unbelievable first and business class fares that we reported on New Year’s Eve (See: [Expired] Crazy…

The other day, I wrote about my dilemma in choosing how to book an upcoming unplanned trip to Asia (See: A miles vs points dilemma: Redeem an award or “pay” with points?). In a nutshell, I was looking at using airline miles vs booking a paid fare using the Chase Ultimate Rewards portal or Membership Rewards points through Amex travel. I felt like the value proposition was poor with most miles because of the low…

In my recent post “Searching for business class sweet-spots in Iberia’s OneWorld award chart,” I wrote “I haven’t yet compared Iberia Avios awards to those available from other OneWorld airlines such as Cathay Pacific.”  Well, now that Cathay Pacific is out with a new 60K signup offer, it’s time to take a look. Cathay Pacific offers two different award charts depending upon how many non-Cathay OneWorld partners you fly.  If your itinerary includes more than…
