This G class fare will earn 50% of the flown distance when credited to a partner airlines like JetBlue, United, or ANA. That means a JFK-JNB flight would earn 7,969 miles round-trip.

Using Chase Points:

You can pay for the ticket with “hybrid points” such as AMEX or Chase points with a card that allows your points to be used at an increased value for airfare in addition to be able to transfer points into airline miles.

If you have a Chase Sapphire Reserve card you can redeem points for 1.5 cents each towards travel. If you have a Chase Sapphire Preferred or Chase Ink Preferred you can redeem points for 1.25 cents each towards travel.

Learn more about rapidly accumulating Ultimate Rewards points via the Chase Quinfecta here.

You can login to your account and redeem Chase points for travel here. The cost will be 46,230 points round-trip with a Sapphire Reserve. That rate include all taxes and you will still earn flight miles as well!

I’m not sure it’s a smart idea to book.

Using ITA, I found UA/LX SFO JNB for $696 and DL SFO CPT for $838.
