Buying Alaska/American miles for NZ >> US: Cathay or JAL?
You originally suggested that if I’m buying miles for a specific award from NZ to USA, to buy Alaska and travel on Cathay, but now that you’ve had such an amazing experience with JAL, would you take that back and suggest buying Aadvantage miles to go SYD to NYC via Tokyo? How many miles would that take?
@ Reine — I probably wouldn’t since that would require two awards through American AAdvantage. You’d have to book an Australia to Asia award, and then Asia to US award. So it would cost you substantially more.
