Get A 10% Bonus When You Transfer Miles From AMEX Or Citi To Cathay Pacific Asia Miles

Register via the link above and transfer miles from AMEX or Citi to Cathay Pacific Asia Miles in January and you’ll get 10% bonus miles. The bonus miles will post within 8 to 10 weeks after 1/31.

Asia Miles no longer expire, as long you you earn or redeem 1 mile every 18 months.

Cathay Pacific has better award availability on Cathay flights than they release to partners, which makes their miles valuable.

Here is the Cathay Pacific Asia Miles award chart:

Fuel surcharges for British Airways flights are cheaper than they are with other partners. For example while BA charges 50K-60K Avios+$629 for one-way business class from JFK to London, Cathay charges 61K miles+$258.

Thanks Dan was waiting for a transfer deal to Cathay

Guy

Can I book JFK/EWR to TLV on BA thru Cathay? don’t see that as an option on the search

Oded Grinstein

״The bonus miles will post within 8 to 10 weeks after 1/31.״
So if we’d like to fly for the holiday season, from mid Dec to early January, we won’t be able to use the extra 10% bonus miles for THAT flight. Correct?

yank

is it also much less fuel surcharge on BA for economy? ty

Happy Thanksgiving

If I dont have points in the acct, how can I see how much of a fuel surcharge a flight would cost me? Thanks

PD

Are all BA mileage available through Cathay or is there less choice?

CS

How much would taxes and fees be in standard economy from LON-TLV?
I opened an account but with no miles in it, I can’t check it up.

Yaacov
