Lest Week I posted "Getting upgrades at check in" and I got a lot of feedback. Thank you!! So I figured I could get some help here for booking my summer vacation.
I am planning a summer trip with my family from YUL-ATH. I want to fly Business Class but there is never a segment that's all business class. Usually I get the long haul to Europe in Economy and the short haul with Europe in Business. Now, I am not willing to give all those points in Business Class for a 2 hour flight. I need to know if anyone has any ideas of how I could fly to Europe in Business Class with my points but maybe via another website I don't know about, or maybe something with Star Alliance. I don't mind buying tickets and then using my points to get an upgrade voucher but the fare Class that I need to purchase is Y or B and those are the high end economy tickets, which makes no sense. I have used Points.com before which worked great but I want to know is there any other way? Converting my Aeroplan for Lufthansa Miles and then booking through Lufthansa?
And Yes I have used the conversion link on web flyers.
Cant wait to get everyone's input on this.
