    Today I was browsing the Hotel + Airline Miles Package and found the following.

    CX and JAL are belong to the same group, aka

    7night + 35K miles = 200K
    7night + 85K miles = 270K

    which when I check for what I wanna buy for my mother, a HKG-YYZ CX round trip ticket in J, cost me 145K with CX and 120K with JAL, and then if I make my mother to fly HKG-NRT-JFK-YYZ in J, it will mean merely 100K Miles in J (and 65K miles in Y, for CX Asiamiles they ask me 90K for the same thing)

    So essentially CX has a worse "burn" rate then JAL as the number of Marriott reward points required for both are essentially the same, and I didn't bring BA into the mix yet. So do shop around and make sure you have the best ROI on your Marriott Points!
