Last week we had one a few good Error fares this year with Hong Kong Airlines releasing business class round trip fares from the west coast to Asia for approx $600. Lots of people jumped on these and the airline has committed to honoring them. This was great news and I look forward to a trip to Shanghai and beyond next spring.
An added bonus of these fares is that they have been ticketed in Fare class J, which means they will also accrue airmiles in their program Fortune Wings Club. These miles will be usable with their partners in this club which include Hainan Airlines amongst others along with international airlines such as TAP and Alaska.
One very interesting new redemption you could make with these miles could be on the new fifth Freedom route between Dublin and Edinburgh. This was launched earlier this year and is operated by a Airbus A330.
Based on the short distance would not require many miles to try out their business class once seats are available. The flight operates direct from Dublin to Beijing twice a week and via Edinburgh twice a week.
Many of the people who jumped on last weeks deal will be frequent travelers and looking for an interesting way to spend the attached mileage haul. So why not hop between Ireland and Scotland in style….
