Hi, I have never ever redeemed any ff points before so I am totally new at this and absolutely clueless/confused.
I am travelling to Hong Kong late April 2017 to late May 2017 and I have figured that Asia Miles is the better option - Cathay Pacific 80000 points return+tax. (Please correct if I am wrong)
Now there is two of us + newborn travelling and I only have 130000 points.
I am wishing to travel business class for both people return for honeymoon. How do I go about this?
Do I book online a single business return ticket (80000) points + buy a single economy return ticket ($1550) and upgrade that to business return for (50000) points? Am I guaranteed business or will it be premium economy? It says online if the plane has premium economy it will be that instead of business class, the plane I have looked has premium economy. If I book online am I guaranteed that ticket or can I be downgraded when checking-in?
Or do I book two economy return tickets ($3000) and upgrade them to business using my points (50000 x2).
Or is there a better way?
Thanks in advance!! All this is like a new language for me
