Hi all This is following on from a quick conversation Craig and I had in the comments section of an article. My wife needs to go to Japan in February 2019 for a business conference, and I would like to get her there in a decent fashion. She has to self-fund the trip, although she can write the cost off against her business tax. My original thinking was to earn/buy Alaska miles and take advantage of the 85k redemption from Europe to Asia, but Craig pointed out that would only get her as far as HKG. We are well located for Stansted (and poorly located for Heathrow) so an ex-EU flight would work. We collect Avios, and the 2-4-1 voucher, but she will be travelling alone for this trip so the voucher is of no use. Any help and input would be very welcome!
