Airline miles have, once again, opened the holy grail of First Class doors.
How I booked: Shelled out 150,000 @alaskaair Miles to redeem this flight. This sounds like a lot of miles (which it is) and it sounds like a poor redemption (which it was) - but it offered me one of the best experiences to the Middle East with a free stopover in Dubai, and direct access into the Maldives. For that, I consider it Miles well spent. - 25 minutes ago
