At first this didn’t sound so tempting, but I was surprised by how low the fare classes required to upgrade are. Through the end of the year, ANA is reducing the number of miles required to upgrade from coach to business class. From New York to Tokyo one-way, for example, an upgrade will only be 14,000 miles instead of the usual 28,000 miles. Furthermore, the upgradeable fare classes are quite reasonable. I see $1,300 “S” class fares that can be upgraded under this promotion. Keep in mind that American Express Membership Rewards points can be transferred to ANA.
Not bad, although I’ll probably stick to full award redemptions….
