I (Micky) have been a big fan of Cathay Pacific ever since I was studying in Melbourne, Australia. On average, I travelled twice a year between Taiwan and Australia. The great benefit for being loyal to a specific airline is that you can earn loyalty points every time you travel with them – hence the term: Loyalty Points! I had to travel back home for family reason this fall and I decided to use all the points I had accumulated over the past few years to upgrade my flight to Business Class from Hong Kong back to Toronto.
The fact is one way upgrade from Hong Kong to Toronto or vice versa needs a lot of points. I could have chosen to upgrade my trip for Hong Kong – Taipei or vice versa, but it’s such a short trip (about 1.5 hours) and I personally thought it was a bit waste of the points. It’s too short to enjoy the great service.
Following are the steps to upgrade to Business Class using your Asia Miles:
- Book your tickets first of course! But when you’ve already booked your tickets, let your agent (if you used an agent) know that you are planning to upgrade. Normally, you have to pay high a fee for upgrading. Ask your agent to check whether the flight still has seats available and leave a note on their system that you are going to upgrade.
- You have to have paid for your tickets before you call Asia Miles’ customer service. Have your membership number and booking reference on hand before you call Asia Miles.
