A few weeks in the past I wrote about how Cathay Pacific releases firstclass award house.
Cathay Pacific First Class
Because it stands Cathay Pacific firstclass awards have gotten a lot tougher to safe from the U.S.
- With solely 6 seats and no extra 747s (that had 9 seats), there are simply fewer seats to go round.
- They used to continuously provide 2 award seats per flight early on, now they provide simply 1
- In order for you a second seat (or extra) you’ll anticipate to see it provided that there are seats left inside per week of journey.
Like Singapore Airways A380 Suites, awards are a lot simpler to get between Europe and Asia than between the US and Asia.
There was a dialogue yesterday on Flyertalk about Cathay Pacific’s award availability inside 6 days of departure. The concern was it was now not obtainable to companions. And never simply firstclass, enterprise class additionally.
Cathay Pacific Enterprise Class
It appears to be, nevertheless, that British Airways isn’t exhibiting Cathay Pacific awards inside 6 days of departure however the house is there.
Right here’s award availability searched through Qantas (American doesn’t present Cathay house on its web site). There’s loads of firstclass award house for at the very least one passenger over the subsequent few days.
And there’s additionally flights with enterprise class award availability as nicely.
It simply doesn’t present up at BA.com. Cathay Pacific AsiaMiles can ebook it. American AAdvantage can ebook it. And you may nonetheless see the house on the Qantas web site.
So don’t anticipate to make use of British Airways Avios close-in for Cathay Pacific, at the very least proper now. And don’t depend on the British Airways web site for Cathay Pacific award searches inside 6 days of journey.
