[Dead] 45K RT First Class to Hawaii in flat beds

Last night, Stephen reported on the outrageous first class award availability on Delta’s new route from Detroit to Honolulu that starts service next summer (for up to eight passengers). The catch is that while Delta still charges a king’s ransom (which, by the way, could be a different amount of miles any day of the week), partner Virgin Atlantic is showing eight seats or more available for 37,500 miles each way plus $5.60. However, you…

[Expired] Wow: $874 First Class British Airways South Africa to Spain

As reported by One Mile at a Time, there are some crazy first class fares running right now between South Africa and Spain on British Airways — with round trip flights from either Johannesburg or Cape Town to Barcelona or Madrid from about $873. As these are paid first class fares, they could earn a ton of miles, but I’d hold off on making nonrefundable plans to make sure this gets honored.

Lufthansa First Class Awards.

A couple of weeks ago, a bunch of Lufthansa first class awards became available for booking more than 14 days out, although none of that included routes to or from US cities. It looks like that availability might’ve expanded to include some US cities but beware – some of it might be phantom availability.

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A newer version of this post is now available here: Best options for domestic first class awards The original post follows… Domestic first class is nicer than coach, but, in most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. …

(EXPIRED) First Class deals: British Airways Europe to the US from ~$2100

Via German blog You Have Been Upgraded and Flyertalk’s Premium Fare Deals, there are some amazing prices on first class airfares between Europe and the US on British Airways and American Airlines — starting from $2,162 round trip from Bucharest, Romania to Phoenix, Arizona.
