Yes, points is how I got business class from Chicago to Frankfurt for ringmeet last year. There was a weird instance where a flight that left at 16:00 got me in just after 7:00 for only 70,000 points. What I’m seeing this year is that’s not normal but sometimes seen. I can get a return flight that connects somewhere in Europe (I forget where) this year for the same price.I find it fascinating that Business Class is actually affordable for you guys.
Actually paying for business class is around $5,000 which I’m not ever going to spend because I’m a pleb. I’ll happily use the points on flights I’ve accumulated through my work though.
