You Can Still Book on Old American Airlines Chart with Alaska or Etihad Miles

Still alive 16 months later. How long will it last?

However, you can still book American Airlines flight at the old prices if you use Alaska or Etihad miles.

Fly to Europe in a Flat Bed for 29,000 Points Roundtrip? Sweet Spot to Fly Brussels Business

Update 5/25/16: A One Mile at a Time commenter confirms booking a Brussels Business Class roundtrip from New York to Brussels for 36,620 Etihad miles plus under $100 in taxes per person.

Devaluations Make Korean and Singapore Miles Relatively Better for Premium Awards

Korean Airlines releases the most First Class award space of any airline for a fantastic First Class product. All five possibilities are fully flat beds. Korean miles are the main way to book Korean First Class. (Delta miles cannot book partner First Class.)

Singapore Suites is even more luxurious, possibly the most luxurious First Class in the world, and the only one that allows two suites to be combined into a flying double bed. Singapore miles are the only way to book Singapore Suites.

In my mind, the problem with Korean First Class and Singapore Suites is the cost.

Please Do Be Tempted by ThankYou Points/Virgin Atlantic Transfer Bonus

A recent post by View from the Wing said not "to be tempted" by the current 25% transfer bonus from Citi ThankYou Points to Virgin Atlantic miles. His argument was that there are so few good uses of Virgin Atlantic miles that he had to dig "deep in the barrel" to come up with any.

Well I dug for 15 seconds to find two great uses to South America and Europe.
