Has any one had any luck booking travel in business class directly from diners site.
great options for booking airlines where you can't transfer points into. i.e. Emirates etc. only Economy shows up. Has anyone had any luck with C/J pls let me know.
Did you click Advanced Flight Preferences and choose a class of service?

thanks i see it. had be there all the time.
now that i access it, the miles and prices are almost discouraging.
have you had any good luck with decent mileage redemption on diners site.
When you use Tailored Travel the number of points directly reflects the price of the ticket. It's not an "award", Diners is simply converting your points to money and buying the ticket you choose at regular price. (If you like this approach, Citi ThankYou and CapitalOne Venture are much better programs.)
Even though you cannot transfer Club Rewards points to Emirates, you may be able to transfer to one of their partner airlines and redeem through the partner's program for travel on Emirates. I would investigate these possibilities:
Alaska Airlines (http://www.alaskaair.com/content/mileage-plan/partners/emirates.aspx)
Korean Air (http://www.koreanair.com/)
South African Airways (https://www.flysaa.com/us/en/voyager/AboutVoyager/flysaa_VoyagerPartners.html)
As always, do NOT transfer until you have confirmed award seat availability for your specific route and dates.
