(Date of travel – 11 February, 2018)
Cathay Pacific and Qatar business class are among the best utilisations of British Airways Avios redemption as a One World Partner. I have also reviewed First Class of Qatar using British Airways points in a separate blog. On our journey to 198 countries (193 UN Nation + Vatican City, Kosovo, Taiwan, Palestine and Antarctica) the next trip due was for Taiwan. We booked Delhi-Tokyo at Rs 208/ using 45000 Air India points and also got 50% points back. Air India was running a promotion, book a frequent flyer miles ticket on your Birthday and get 50% miles back post travel. From Tokyo – Taipei,Taiwan sector we travelled Cathay Pacific business class just for 20000 British Airways Avios and taxes were approx Rs 2500 range.
The airport lounge at Tokyo was nothing special a regular lounge. The business class seat of cathay was not flat bed as it was a medium distance flight of 4hr 20 min. The food and beverage choices was excellent. Overall we enjoyed the journey.
