The next couple weeks…

The next couple weeks are quite busy for me. This weekend I’m visiting the family in Ottawa, where I will be getting a fancy-pants suit for my real world life. After that, I’m off to Hong Kong and South Africa on Cathay Pacific First Class. I will be writing the trip report throughout the course of the next couple weeks, including an instalment on how I booked it coming out soon. However, considering my real-world business, my posting will go down, and considerably down while I’m on safari etc from Jul 16-Jul 30. Nonetheless, I will continue to post during this busy time, just with less frequency. As always, I only post original content, which takes awhile to think about and write.



  1. Nice! Hoping to fly that route next summer – do you know if CX is no longer flying first on their HKG-JNB route – I keep getting “Cabin not operated on this flight” or “Unavailable” when trying to book CX First for next spring.

    1. I just took a look for availability, and it looks like CX is cutting their F product between HKG-JNB starting Aug 2nd ๐Ÿ™ That really sucks b/c it is one of my favourite redemptions with Alaska miles!

    1. I will elaborate more on that in my trip report, but in essence, I used 140,000 Alaska miles for the North America-HKG-JNB r/t segments in Cathay First ๐Ÿ™‚
