When it comes to traveling, the best way to do so is through the use of points. The points earned can be used to book flights, hotels, and even different experiences, making the overall trip much cheaper. How great is it then, when points can be used to work together in a different program?
AA has added the ability to book Cathay Pacific tickets through the use of points. Cathay Pacific will be the latest to enter in this space, as Etihad nd Japan Air were also given this treatment a few months ago.
While I think it’s more of a win to have more options, I think some people could see this as being an overall bad thing, as there will be less availability if more people have access to it. Still, I think that’s the entire point, having more access. The negative in all of this is actually that American Airlines is moving to a dynamic point structure. That will be more of a hurdle to overcome in my opinion.
