Cathay Pacific Asia Miles and the Marco Polo Club have published yet another promotion that gives a 20% Discount, this time on redemptions between Hong Kong and a variety of cities in the United States.
The promotion offer a reduction of 20% off the Standard Award mileage levels for flights to/from Boston, New York-Newark and Los Angeles (both for one way and return flights) in Business/Premium Economy and Economy Class.
Cathay Pacific’s award chart is everything but favorable compared with the competition, these promotions take the edge off a little for those loyal CX fliers who credit their miles at Marco Polo Club / Asia Miles.
Below is the table for the promotion (accessible on Cathay Pacific’s website here)
There are specific booking / travel periods for this
Redemption Booking Period:
20–31 August 2015
1 November–14 December 2015
This promotion is only available for bookings made online, call center reservations are not eligible.
This is a nice promo for those based in Hong Kong and the associated gateway cities. As I mentioned above, I find the award chart for AsiaMiles/Marco Polo overpriced compared with the competition so this might be interesting for those whose travel plans suit the time frame of this promotion.
