Hi, I’m in the process of booking honeymoon flights from the US to Greece. I initially planned to book the flight out in economy class with Delta points, and the return flight in Emirates first class. However, the Delta flight was cancelled, and I have the choice of either trying to find another economy flight, or switching my one leg in Emirates first to both ways in Emirates business class. (Both ways in business class costs slightly less points than one way in first class).
I’m torn – it would be great to do both legs in business class, and cost many fewer points overall, but would we be missing out on too rare of an opportunity if we give up the first class tickets? I don’t have the points to do both. Would very much appreciate some advice from folks who have flown both! Thanks.
It will be hard for us to decide for you, but remember that the leg from the US to Europe is a red eye. So if getting some decent sleep is priority for you, then switching to business class might be a better option, but you won’t really get to enjoy much more amenities.
If you can sleep in economy, or planning to sleep on arrival, then just keep your first class flight for the fun!
