Basics:

What you need to take advantage of this deal:

  • American Airlines AAdvantage Miles (15,000 Miles) + about $25 in taxes + $25 booking fee or
  • United Airlines MileagePlus Miles (15,000 Miles) + $25 – $30  in taxes or
  • British Airways Avios (10,000 Avios) + $41 (only on Cathay Pacific)
  • If you don’t have miles, China Eastern has an one way flight for $299 via Shanghai.

And this is why we recommend you collect miles. United Airlines miles can also be transferred from Chase Ultimate Rewards at 1:1 ratio. British Airways Avios is both a Chase Ultimate Rewards and American Express Membership Rewards partner. For this, we would use British Airways Avios points.

2. Search for Award Availability from Hong Kong to Tokyo.

We are going to use award miles to travel from Hong Kong to Tokyo. United and British Airways’ show availability and you can book online. For American, you have to call them to book since their partners, Cathay Pacific  and Japan Airlines, are not searchable on AA.com yet. Award availability with United looks pretty good for the travel period.
