Best business flight from SAN,LAX,SFO to Indochina- miles or $
What is the best route/airline for RT business lie flat seats to Hong Kong, Thailand, or Vietnam this July.
I have 200,000 chase rewards but know that is not nearly enough. 5 adults flying, 1 is 78 yr so the lie flat seats helps. There is a JAL -SAN/TKO non stop but angle seats….
Thank you, great site
200k points is not enough for 5 one way trips from the west cost to southeast Asia. However you have a variety of partners to choose from when transferring to United, Singapore or Korean. I’d book whatever is available but Korean, EVA and Singapore Airlines are great options

Thank you David W.
I edited my post to reflect what I really am thinking. Trying to think out of the box to get lie flat seats for a reasonable cost- and maybe try to use some miles to offset.
Hi [USER=2834]@likebusflyer[/USER]! To give you a general sense of costs, you currently have enough miles for one business class ticket. There are absolutely going to be nicer planes leaving from Los Angeles than San Diego.
Your best bets for five seats will be Asiana or Cathay Pacific. You can purchase LifeMiles for the former, or Alaska miles for the latter, or could potentially leverage some other credit card bonuses, but there will definitely be a large amount of cash required here.
Sounds like a fun trip though!
