11 Crazy Expensive First Class Flights, Free with Miles

Here we go again, another list proving just how valuable this points hobby is…even with the recent devaluations. My Emirates First A380 one-way itinerary LAX-DXB-MLE last month was pricing at $27,375 on my day of travel, but I’ve seen it as high as $30K! Check out this list for 11 other crazy itineraries, all available for booking with points and miles.  PS, you’ll want to ignore some of their more blatant non airline geek errors – like the China Southern flight being researched on oneworld.com and the Emirates First cabin that’s actually a picture of Emirates Business.
