Paid Economy or out of pocket biz and first
I am asked to go to HKG on short notice by my company and have to turn around on the same day (going from West Coast). The company is paying for economy (yes, cheap!!) but I found that there’s award seat in business on CX on the way there, and return there’s award seats for first on CX (no biz). I have enough AA miles for 3 RTs in biz. The economy fare is about $1000.
1) If you are able to get reimbursed for the $1000, would you use your AA miles to do the trip?
2) Or just suck it and do economy for 25 hours (with 14 hours on the ground meeting people from 9am til 9pm)?
