just a quick question, what is the cheapest points/taxes combination to do long haul Aus to say EU, doing first class on both etihad or emirates,
I really want to try both and almost enough points to do both?
I know emirates has high taxes so there is nothing you can do about that
I was told the best way for both is to use a 2ppd/3ppd earning credit card and from there transfer to the various programs
for example krisflyer is 296-300k odd points plus $300 for AU to EU first class return, as a comparison
and ive never flown any of them, is emirates/etihad first class the industry benchmark for the best 1st class?
