Best Way or Quickest Way to Earn Miles

Best Way or Quickest Way to Earn Miles

    Hi Lucky,

    First off if you’re not already an Ambassador for Emirates then you should be. Well after reading several of your trips on Emirates you got be convinced that I need to take a trip First Class on this airline. Excellent job with getting the ready hooked and feel as if their on the flight with you.

    I would like to know what is the best or quickest way to earn miles to my destinations. For example I would like to travel to London, Paris and probably anywhere Emirates flies so I can experience First Class on it just to name a few. I live in Dallas and as you all know DFW is a hub to AA.

    What credit cards and so forth I can get to get me to those destinations if it’s too long of an answer then I’ll be satisfied on what card(s) I need in order to get a First Class ticker on Emirates? How many files I need? What can I convert to or from to get on Emirates? etc.

    If you want to fly Emirates First your best bet is Alaska Airlines points.

    The quickest way would be to just buy the points need. More expensive, but still a big discount over F fares and you can be off in few days time if you find award space.

    The best way is of course credit cards.
    Start with the Alaska cards here.

    And than get some flexible cards that allow points to be converted to Alaska Mileage Plan, like the SPG AMEX.
