- Electric Tokyo: A $15,000 Week in Japan for $58 (With Business Class Flights and Free Hotels!)
- Review: JAL Business Class Sky Suite 787-8 NRT-DFW
The day finally came to travel to Japan. I love travel days. And this one was silky smooth.
We arrived to the airport in 20 minutes flat, cleared PreCheck in I swear to gods 90 seconds, and headed to the Centurion Lounge. There was time for breakfast, a cocktail, and a free manicure. And, our departure gate was right across from the lounge.
I was relaxed and happy when boarding began. And used 54,000 American miles for this flight.
The actual cost is 60,000 American miles. But I got a 10% mileage rebate upon booking – so 6,000 miles were instantly redeposited into my account. This perk comes with most American co-branded cards (with both Citi and Barclays). It’s worth the annual fee for this alone.
Last time I flew this route in this plane was in First Class. So I was curious to see how the new retro-fitted Business Class seats would look and feel. And off we go!
