Hello from Stockholm!
This is an absolutely gorgeous city, and I can’t believe I’ve never been here before. The weather has been perfect as well, which has made for some amazing sightseeing.
I’m in the middle of a trip with one of my best friends, Matt. While we’ve had the trip outlined for almost a year, we’re filling in the details nearly day-by day. I’m trying to write the trip reports “live” as much as possible, and Matt is sharing his thoughts as we go as well.
One of the techniques for traveling in international premium cabins at a fraction of the cost is actually to buy miles during promotions like this one. Matt and I both purchased miles for our current Emirates trip, for example.
For international readers, or those who don’t have access to US credit cards, this can be a very good option. Australians in particular should look at this promo, as you’ll usually come out ahead buying miles versus paying the fuel surcharges on Qantas.
Using miles for premium cabin travel between California and Europe can be tough. Capacity is incredibly limited in first class, and business class is only slightly better. In most cases
British Airways has just announced a new route between San Jose and London, and award space is very good at present — even into summer. You will pay fuel surcharges for travel on British Airways, but this is a good opportunity to redeem the BA Travel Together ticket, or use American miles on a nonstop flight to Europe.
