This is not really a question about redeeming points, but more about which product is best. I’m planning out a trip to Seattle (from Manila) to play tourist. I’m thinking about doing some (paid) business class travel for it (make the flight itself part of the trip, I guess.) First Class is probably out of the price range, so it’s business only.
With that in mind… what do you think is the best “aspirational” business class product for someone who’s never flown in a premium cabin ever? The options direct into Seattle don’t seem to be that great (Korean, Emirates, Eva Air – all 777s), and there’s a part of me that wouldn’t mind taking the long way (i.e., via the Middle East) and maybe connecting via somebody decent like jetblue.
So, if you had to pick one business class experience that fit into the “aspirational” category that’s either trans-Pacific or Middle East to the US, which would it be? Or do First class prices fluctuate enough that it MAY be worth it to try to snag a good deal? (Preferably, this would be on an airline that I can credit to Skypass, as that’s where my miles are now.)
@ Jonathan — It’s tough to say. First class fares are often significantly cheaper when originating at certain airports, so it might be possible to find a good first class fare. In terms of business class products, I’d say EVA Air business class is probably the best of the lot. Enjoy your trip!
