how would you use 300.000 miles?

Hi,
I have 300k+ miles in my topbonus account... what is in your opinion the best way to use them?

I would like to use them for a F/C ( of course F not with AB) flight somewhere and i am looking for ideas.. but maybe there are better ways to use them


Thanks

The mileage program has nothing to do with AB, it is a separate corporation owned by Ethiad. The other question could however be that the depart from OW and this would restrict the use of miles dramatically.

You could try using your miles on Around The World OW Flights on C

e.g Germany to LAX, LAX-SYD, SYD-HKG, HKG-Germany

I would fancy that redemption where somebody managed to book a one way to the US via HKG, with a stopover of a few days there, for just 60,000 miles. i wonder in all practicality if it really is possible to do that! Obviously that would be combining AB and CX.

There has been a Memo to all Agents regarding this practice, so this ainīt possible anymore.

You're kidding me! Since when? I haven't been over to VFT for quite a while, so that's probably why I missed out on these developments.

Phuket for 2 in C (operated by EY) costs 320k miles plus ca. EUR 965,-. About the same for i. e. Singapore.

Bangkok: Yes, same region like Phuket or Singapore (or Vietnam, Malaysia).

Tokyo: No, one-way on C is 90k, so RT for 2 passengers is 360k miles. Taxes can vary a bit too. Japan is the same region like China, Hongkong, Korea.

Have a look here.
