Additional ways to use your Avios efficiently
Cathay Pacific – business class Hong Kong to Europe for 129,000/99,000 avios
Cathay Pacific first class is an exceptional way to travel in style. You have your own small suite in a rather private cabin with only 6 seats. Considering that their first class redemptions are only 20000 avios more than business class, with the same low amount of around 85€ in fees, this is a perfect way to use your avios. Their business class is also very good, and in terms of availability more open than their first class. More cities in Europe are available like for example London or Zürich, but availability seems to be best to Frankfurt.
Qatar Airways – Business class Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires for 15,000 avios
If you are ever in need of a flight from Sao Paulo to Buenos Aires or vice versa… With the 5th freedom route of Qatar Airways, all you need are 15000 avios and around 25€ to travel this route in a lie flat seat.
