- Just Booked: A Brussels Airlines Biz Class Award Flight With Etihad Miles
- My Best Advice: BOOK THE TRIP
In a few weeks, I’ll be in Brussels, Amsterdam, and Prague for the first time. I am calling this trip “BAP” (after the 3 cities).
This is the trip I booked waaay back in August 2016 for biz class seats with Etihad miles. At the time, I paid ~37,000 miles for round-trip seats from New York to Brussels on Brussels Airlines. Etihad has since raised the price to 88,000 miles – which can still be a good deal to Europe in Business.
That was about 9 months ago – the furthest out I’ve ever planned a trip. At the time, I figured I’d fill it in when the time came. Which is now.
Here’s how I put together a $5,00+ week-long trip to Europe for $238 out of pocket.
